Description: Blues guitarist and singer Robert Cray's smooth, seductive vocal phrasing and rhythmic R&B stylings have earned him a reputation as a modern blues poet. His signature blend of rhythm and blues, pop, rock, soul, and traditional blues have made him a standout. His latest studio album, This Time, came out in 2009. As ever with Cray's undefinable sound, the music on the disc remains stubbornly beyond category. "Blues is one of the foundations of our music, but it's not all that we play," Cray says. "When I first started playing guitar, I wanted to be George Harrison - that is, until I heard Jimi Hendrix. After that, I wanted to be Albert Collins and Buddy Guy and B.B. King. And then there are singers like O.V. Wright and Bobby Blue Bland. It's all mixed up in there."
