Steve Winwood was born in Birmingham, England on 12th May, 1948. His father was a semi professional musician who used to play instruments like clarinet and saxophone. Steve himself started learning how to play multiple instruments like guitar, piano and drums at a very early age. By the time he was eight years old, Steve had teamed up with his father and brother to become a member of the Ron Atkinson Band. He also acted as a choir boy at the St John’s Church before re-locating with his family to Kingstanding. During his school days Steve Winwood became active in the prevailing R&B music culture of that era playing guitar and organs. Those exploits led him to perform with stars like John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, Eddie Boyd, Chuck Berry, Otis Spann, Bo Diddley and T-Bone Walker while they went on tours around the United Kingdom. His biggest musical inspiration however was the great Ray Charles. Steve then went on to become a member of the Spencer Davis Group when he was only fourteen years old and it was during this time that people started to compare him with his idol Ray Charles. The group released their debut song Keep On Running and with the money he received from that released enabled Steve Winwood to buy a Hammond B-3 organ.
After writing and recording hit songs like I’m a Man and Gimme Some Lovin, Steve left the Spencer Davis Group. Soon afterwards he met Jim Capaldi, Chris Wood and Dave Mason and the four formed their own band called Traffic in the late 1960’s. Together the four of them started to rehearse and record at a Cottage in Aston Tirrold. He then went on to create Blind Faith with names like Ric Grech, Ginger Baker and Eric Clapton in 1969, a project that was short-lived. Steve Winwood then decided to go solo and hit the studio to start working on his debut release. He called upon John Capaldi and Chris Wood to help him out with the album which ended up in the re-formation of Traffic. The band released an album titles John Barleycom Must Die and toured extensively for a few more years.
