Blues guitar phenom Christone “Kingfish” Ingram has released a new single called “662.” The song was co-written by producer Tom Hambridge and is now available on all streaming and download platforms. “662” is Ingram’s area code and is the title of Kingfish’s upcoming album to be released in July.
“662 is an ode to my roots, a nod to the area where I was born and raised,” says Kingfish. “This is a track that encompasses how a small corner of the earth influenced my view of life and music. This song also points to the growth I have had since my debut album. As much as I have been fortunate to get ‘Outside Of This Town’ (the title of his breakout single from his 2019 Grammy-nominated debut album, Kingfish), I do want people to know that the ‘662’ will always be a major part of who I am.”
In 2020, Ingram won five blues music awards. His debut album, Kingfish, also made Blues Rock Review’s top 20 albums of 2020. You can watch an interview Blues Rock Review did with Kingfish about that album and his rise in blues below.
