A fixture on the American music scene for more than sixty years, The Blind Boys of Alabama have enjoyed one of the more striking comebacks in recent memory. Since signing with Peter Gabriel's Real World Records label in 2001, their last four albums have earned these hipster septuagenarians the best reviews and record sales of their career, and introduced them to a completely new, contemporary audience. Those albums have also won the Grammy in the Best Traditional Soul Gospel category for four consecutive years. In addition to their albums for Real World, the Blind Boys have also recorded with many artists in recent years including Lou Reed, Ibrahim Ferrer and Solomon Burke. Their collaboration with Ben Harper produced 2004's There Will Be A Light, which saw the Blind Boys breaking the Billboard Top 100 for the first time in their 60 year history, and scoring nominations for three Grammys this year. The Blind Boys still seek to expand the audience for traditional soul-gospel singing while incorporating contemporary songs and innovative arrangements into their hallowed style.
