Since the release of Kingfish, his Grammy-nominated 2019 Alligator Records debut, guitarist, vocalist and songwriter Christone "Kingfish" Ingram has quickly become the defining blues voice of his generation.

From his hometown of Clarksdale, Mississippi to stages around the world, the now 22-year-old has already headlined two national tours and performed with friends including Vampire Weekend, Jason Isbell and Buddy Guy (with whom he appeared on Austin City Limits).

He was interviewed by Sir Elton John on his Apple Music podcast, Rocket Hour, and released a duet with Bootsy Collins.
