The Mojo Gurus are led by singer/songwriter Kevin Steele who throughout his illustrious career has worked with some of the best producers in the music business including Jack Douglas (John Lennon, Aerosmith, The New York Dolls), Beau Hill (Ratt, Kix), Tommy Henricksen (Alice Cooper, Lou Reed, Hollywood Vampires) and Carl Canedy (The Rods, Anthrax, Roxx Gang). Kevin's critically acclaimed body of work has culminated in the Mojo Gurus’ latest record, GONE which he wrote, arranged and produced. GONE is the crown jewel of his career.
Released by MRI Entertainment (The Black Crowes), GONE is a record that defies genres. The Mojo Gurus are as adept at psychedelia, (Step Into The Light) as they are at Memphis Soul, (Fifty Miles). They can play heart wrenching blues, (All I Do Is Cry) and a pretty but poisonous love/hate ballad (Never Met A Girl Like You Before). They can combine all these elements seamlessly and deliver a social message for these divisive times (Love Somebody). Most of today's bands tend to suffer from a certain narrow minded tunnel vision. No one ever told The Beatles to stop experimenting with different styles (thank God) and apparently no one ever told The Mojo Gurus either.
In his personal life Kevin Steele is a studied musicologist with a vast vinyl and digital music collection that spans many genres. Kevin has managed to incorporate the sounds of all his varied influences on GONE yet still create his own powerful, unique sound. Prepare to be dazzled by the songwriting and musicianship of Kevin Steele and The Mojo Gurus.
“I truly believe, GONE contains the best writing I’ve ever done. It is without a doubt the Mojo Gurus’ best work and I can’t wait to share it with everyone.” – Kevin Steele
