In just over 40 years Cray and his band have recorded 20 studio releases, 15 of which have been on the Billboard charts, and played bars, concert halls, festivals and arenas around the world. There are five Grammys with Cray’s name on them, and he has a suitcase full of W.C. Handy blues awards. Four years ago Cray was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame. Growing up in the Northwest, Robert Cray listened to the gospel of the Five Blind Boys of Mississippi, Bobby Bland’s soul, Jimi Hendrix’s rock guitar and the Beatles pop sounds. He would bring all of the influences into play throughout his career, but his teenage band was captivated by Southern Soul and the blues. it is extraordinary for musicians to thrive over four decades, and the Robert Cray Band is just that, an extraordinary story of success. That’s over twenty albums and thousands of live performances. The new multimedia release "4 Nights of 40 Years"  presents Robert Cray’s career in a fan friendly, three disc package.
