Kenny ‘Blues Boss’ Wayne has confirmed the launch of his album Jumpin’ & Boppin’ on June 3 via Stony Plain Records.

His third release with the label follows 2014’s Rollin’ With The Blues Boss and features guest appearances from Duke Robillard and B.B. King bassist Russell Jackson.

Award-winning vocalist and keyboardist Wayne says: “This recording has elements of the great jump blues and boogie-woogie era. You might hear some Louis Jordan, Amos Milburn, Ray Charles, Johnnie Johnson and Fats Domino, all mixed in like a blues stew.”

He adds: “This is my second shot at producing my own recording. I’ve learned a lot by sitting back, watching and listening to experienced producers. I’m very excited to share it.”

Wayne is planning tour dates in North America, South America and Europe.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
