After spending much of the early 1970s and 1980s in bands like Canned Heat and working with artists such as John Lee Hooker and Percy Mayfield, singer/songwriter and blues guitarist Walter Trout began his solo career in the 1990s with the Walter Trout Band. He released his debut solo album Life in the Jungle, in 1990 and exposed his raw, bluesy and sentimental style of song writing. Having lived through the idyllic glory days of the New Jersey Boardwalk during the mid-century, Trout often writes material based on his memories of the Jersey Shore before it fell into the party hot spot reputation of modern times. After renaming his band a couple of times throughout the 1990 and 2000s, he dropped his first record under his birth name, an album titled The Outsider, in 2008 and continues to release and perform music as simply Walter Trout.
