Scaggs' First Album Of Original Material In Five Years!


New From The Hitmaker of "Silk Degrees"! Featuring the Single "Mixed Up Shook Up Girl"!

Grammy-Award winning rock legend Boz Scaggs showcases both original songs and choice covers on the album Memphis. The album was produced by Steve Jordan (John Mayer) and was recorded at Willie Mitchell's legendary Royal Studio in Memphis, where the late Mitchell recorded Al Green and other Hi Records artists. Joining Scaggs on Memphis are Willie Weeks (bass), Ray Parker Jr. (guitars), Spooner Oldham (keyboards), the Memphis Horns, Lester Snell (string arrangements) and Steve Jordan (drums).

William Royce Boz Scaggs began a long and storied career in 1965 with the release of his first solo recording Boz. Scaggs quickly developed into an iconic singer songwriter cutting his teeth playing with Steve Miller on several highly successful projects and honing his rock and R&B chops working with the likes of the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section and Duane Allman. Scaggs hit it big in 1976 achieving multi-platinum success with Silk Degrees and its follow-ups. Scaggs continued on a lauded and multi-genre musical journey with successes in film soundtracks.

"...Memphis, his first album of new studio material in five years... Between touring and his work with Donald Fagen and Michael McDonald in the Dukes of September in recent years, Scaggs hasn't had much time in the studio, hence the gap between albums. Thankfully, the multi-platinum singer-songwriter found his new album, Memphis, to be perhaps the most natural collection of his four-decade plus career...

"..."Mixed Up Shook Up Girl", premiered here, finds Scaggs' deep, soulful vocals highlighted by a soft beat that brings to mind another soul icon, the Drifters. Originally recorded by Willy Deville in 1977, "Mixed Up Shook Up Girl" is one of those tracks Scaggs had wanted to do for some time."
