An energetic entertainer and prolific songwriter, Rawls has had over 100 of his songs recorded. His 2014 release, Remembering O. V. was nominated for 2014 Soul Album of the Year and Rawls for Male Soul Artist of the Year, his 11th and 12th Blues Music Awards nominations. Soul Express commented on Remembering O. V, “it’s a precious, precious album, and a must for all the hard-core soul music fans.”

Singer, songwriter, guitarist, arranger and producer Johnny Rawls draws on the 1960s’ deep soul-blues tradition in his guitar playing, yet his lyrics, guitar playing technique and singing are completely modern. Rawls was born in Hattiesburg, Mississippi and learned to play guitar at the knee of his blind grandfather. Having mastered the guitar by his mid-teens, Rawls’ began backing musicians who were touring through Mississippi, such as Z. Z. Hill and Joe Tex. In the mid-1970s, Rawls joined O. V. Wright’s band, became his music director and toured with Wright until OV’s death in 1980. The band continued billed as the Ace of Spades for another 13 years and toured and performed with B. B. King, Little Milton, Bobby Bland, Little Johnny Taylor, and Blues Boy Willie.

Rawls is nominated yearly and often wins blues awards. In 2013 he won the 21st Annual Living Blues Awards Critics’ Poll Most Outstanding Blues Singer 2013 ” and “Best Blues Albums of the Year 2013”  He has also been honored, along with Little Milton and Tyrone Davis, with a Blues Trail Marker in Hattiesburg.

John Coinman is an award-winning singer-songwriter who grew up on the Kiowa Grasslands in northeastern New Mexico. He has recorded five solo CDs, had numerous songs in films and on television, and collaborated with many notable artists including John Densmore of The Doors, James Intveld, Michael Blake (the writer of Dances With Wolves), Amy Rigby, Tony Gilkyson, Troy Olsen and Teddy Morgan, as well as Kevin Costner & Modern West (KCMW). He has been touring and recording with KCMW since 2006. John was the Music Supervisor for the movie Dances With Wolves.

John’s newest CD, Already Are, is his first release in 10 years and will be available spring of 2015 in the USA by Arroyo Verde Music, and in Europe by Cavalier Recordings. It has been long anticipated by Coinman’s fans since his last album, Songs From The Modern West, in 2004. That CD was the catalyst for the formation of Kevin Costner & Modern West, an acclaimed country/rock & roll band that John has been touring and recording with for the last eight years. KCMW has released four CDs and currently are finishing a new one in April (Where the Music Takes You, featuring several new Coinman songs) before hitting the road for tour dates later in the month.

The KCMW band is also John’s original band from Tucson. They are the core of Already Are, and will be playing with John at Club Congress: Teddy Morgan on lead guitar, Blair Forward on bass, and Larry Cobb on drums, along with additional Tucsonan’s Neil Harry on pedal steel guitar and Peter McLaughlin on acoustic guitar.
