Boz Scaggs first made his presence known in the ‘60s as a member of the Steve Miller Band. After two albums with Miller, he began establishing his own musical legacy as a blue-eyed soul icon.

Charting high on Billboard’s U.S. R&B chart, Scaggs’ 1976 release “Silk Degrees” served as his breakout album. The smooth soul groove of “Lowdown” and the rocking rhythm of “Lido Shuffle” earned him diverse legions of followers. In the years that followed, Scaggs expanded his audience with a continuous flow of new material.

His latest release, 2015’s “A Fool to Care,” is one of Scaggs’ most interesting albums. It begins with several shots of swamp pop with “Hell to Pay,” featuring Bonnie Raitt. “Last Tango on 16th Street” slips into a world of exotic jazz. “There’s a Storm A Comin’” is a beautiful country anthem straight out of the ‘50s. Overall, “A Fool to Care” could be considered Scaggs’ testament to his love of music.
