It’s appropriate that Boz Scaggs‘ new album is Out of the Blues since the blues is what first sparked his five-decade musical career.
Born William Royce Scaggs in Canton, Ohio, he grew up in Oklahoma and Texas, where he spent his teenage years immersed in the blues, R&B and early rock ‘n’ roll. While attending school in Dallas, he played in local combos. After several years as a journeyman musician around Madison, WI and Austin, TX, Scaggs spent time traveling in Europe, the Middle East and Asia, eventually settling in Stockholm where he recorded the album Boz.
