Born William Royce Scaggs, his acclaimed career began with the Steve Miller Band in 1967. In 1968, Scaggs went solo, releasing the first of 19 studio albums. His commercial peak came in 1976 when Silk Degrees hit number two on the Billboard Album charts. Powered by the hit singles "Lido Shuffle" and "Lowdown", the album sold over 5 million copies.
Two more platinum albums followed in the late '70s. His latest album, 2018's Out of the Blues, pays homage to his blues-rock roots and includes tributes to stalwarts Jimmy Reed and Magic Sam, along with a cover of Neil Young's "On The Beach".
“Music has been a constant companion and I’m feeling more free with it than ever. I feel like I’ve found my voice through all these years, and I’ve gotten closer to where I want to be with my approach,” Scaggs said in a press release announcing the tour.
