20-year old Mississippi Delta-bred blues guitar prodigy Christone “Kingfish” Ingram is gearing up to release his debut studio album, Kingfish, on May 17th via Alligator Records. The young sensation has received huge praise from the blues community over the last several years for his live collaborations and online YouTube videos.

Following the release of his first official single off of his debut record, “Fresh Out”, featuring mentor and blues hero Buddy Guy, Kingfish has shared “Outside Of This Town”, his first-ever solo single. Premiered via PremierGuitar.com, “Outside Of This Town” is an autobiographical song inspired by Kingfish’s own experiences in his hometown of Clarksdale, Mississippi. He explains, “There’s not a lot to do here. Some people maybe get tempted by the criminal life, but for me it was blues 24/7. I want to be a great man, and bring great music all around the world, because that’s what we need at this moment.”
