Son of bluesman James Peterson, he was discovered by Willie Dixon at the age of five while playing at his fathers club, The Governor's Inn. With the legendary blues icon as his mentor, Peterson went on to perform on several late night talk shows and release his first album, Our Future: 5 Year Old Lucky Peterson, in 1969--before his sixth birthday. Going on to play backup for icons like Etta James in his teens, before hitting his stride as a solo artist in the 1990s with the release of 1989's Lucky Strikes! and 1990's Triple Play. Though he has slowed down his recording and touring schedule considerably into the 21st century, he continues to release records such as his 2012 live effort, Live At the 55 Arts Club Berlin.
