Big Bill Morganfield is the son of McKinley Morganfield (Muddy Waters) and has emerged in the past few years as one of the top blues talents in America. Bill has played all over the world, bringing pure joy to those who have had the pleasure of seeing him live. Many men try to fill their father's shoes when they join the family business. Few, however, must prove they are up to the task in front of an audience as large as the one that watched Big Bill Morganfield come into his own. The similarity between Big Bill's voice and his father's is uncanny. The years of dedication and hard work paid off handsomely. Morganfield's debut album, “Rising Son,” was released in 1999 to popular and critical acclaim. Guitar Player Magazine expressed their belief that Morganfield's album would have brought a smile to his father's face. The following year, the W.C. Handy Awards dubbed Waters' son the Best New Blues Artist. Bill's music has reached all the way to the #1 position on Living Blues Radio charts and has received great reviews all over the world.
