It's appropriate that Boz Scaggs' new album is Out of the Blues, since the blues is what first sparked his five-decade musical career.
Despite his '70s successes, Scaggs spent much of the 1980s out of the music-biz spotlight, traveling, opening a family business, fathering young children, and founding the San Francisco nightclub, Slim's.
He returned to the studio after an 8-year hiatus and released, Other Roads, Some Change, Dig, the Grammy-nominated Come on Home, the unplugged Fade Into Light, the in-concert retrospective Greatest Hits Live as well as a stint touring with Donald Fagen’s New York Rock & Soul Review; all while continuing to maintain a loyal audience in the U.S. and overseas, particularly in Japan.
Joining Boz Scaggs tour is Jeff LeBlanc.
Jeff LeBlanc earned a history degree and imagined his destiny would likely be as a middle-school teacher. However, LeBlanc’s discovery of songwriting led him down a different path. Since releasing his first album, he has epitomized success as an independent artist – netting millions of streams, achieving both satellite and commercial radio play, selling-out headline shows, and touring the country with a wide range of artists such as Boz Scaggs, Chaka Khan, Chris Stapleton, Michael McDonald, Tori Kelly, Chris Isaak, The Wallflowers and more.
