Big LLou is a singer-songwriter, actor & radio personality. Some consider him the “Voice of the Blues” nationally.  Over two-million blues lovers a week tune into BB Kings Bluesville, the world’s biggest blues station on Sirius XM Satellite radio where he’s heard daily.

Just as comfortable on the big screen as he is on stage, Hollywood heavyweights George Lucas and Chuck Lorre chose Big LLou to voice their projects. A sought-after emcee, Llou regularly hosts some of the biggest events in the Blues including The Blues Music Awards, The Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruises, and various blues festivals across the US.

In 2013 he created “Big LLou’s Blues Hall of Fame Tribute Jam,” a blues-themed celebrity jam held annually in Memphis during Blues Music Awards week.  The event has raised over $15,000. for organizations that support blues music and the musicians who perform America’s greatest musical art form.

A true blues “Renaissance Man,” Llou hopes to continue the tradition of artists like Isaac Hayes, Rufus Thomas and Howlin’ Wolf, who also worked in radio and contributed so much to America’s musical landscape.
