OV-300x300  Rawls

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, 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 the latter’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.
