Internationally recognized for his tireless work as a musician, singer and director for over thirty years, it is not surprising that Robert Cray has worked with names such as Chuck Berry, Keith Richards, Eric Clapton and Tina Turner (collaborations that have also earned him several Grammy Awards). His insatiable passion for music shines through in all that he does. Most of what he does has the flavour of classic soul or Memphis blues. In 2011 he was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame.
Over the course of his career, from the late 70s onwards, he has cultivated his reputation as a phenomenal live performer. Known mostly for his guitar playing, Cray prefers Fender guitars and now has two Robert Cray Stratocaster models available from Fender.
