22-year-old blues phenomenon Christone “Kingfish” Ingram blows past all expectations on his brand new Alligator Records release 662. The record shows the young guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter growing and maturing in a very public way. Kingfish again worked with Grammy-winning producer Tom Hambridge on the set and the pair created a pumped-up and profound batch of new music that’s sure to be another important chapter in Ingram’s already-illustrious story.

Named for the area code of his hometown of Clarksdale, Mississippi, 662 builds on Ingram’s roots in the Delta but also includes the more worldly perspectives of a young adult who has spent the last few years on the road meeting life head-on. “662 is an album that sits on the legacy and influence my blues music elders have instilled in me,” he reveals, “but is also my unique, personal story.”

Christone “Kingfish” Ingram is the most lauded new blues artist of the last few years.  His debut album Kingfish came out two years ago and led to a Grammy nomination, several Blues Music and Living Blues Awards, and an incredible amount of record sales. He’s been praised by Buddy Guy, Rolling Stone, and NPR and is considered by many to be a generational talent who is on the vanguard of American guitar music. Ingram’s skills and impact rival any blues master you’d care to name and he’s literally just getting started.
