Biografie

William „Big Bill“ Morganfield (born June 19, 1956) is an American blues singer and guitarist who is the son of blues legend Muddy Waters.

Morganfield was born in Chicago, Illinois, but had little contact with his famous father, whose real name was McKinley Morganfield. Instead he was raised in Southern Florida by his grandmother, and now lives in Atlanta, Georgia. As a child he listened to his father’s records, but also to more popular fare such as The Jackson Five. He came to music later in life, having first worked as a teacher after earning a bachelors degree in English from Tuskegee University and another in Communications from Auburn University. He did not begin playing music seriously until after his father’s death in 1983, and then spent six years studying guitar. A well-received performance with Lonnie Mack at Atlanta’s Center Stage convinced Morganfield that his career move was a good one, but dissatisfied with his craft, he returned to studying traditional blues forms and songwriting while continuing work as a teacher.

His first independent album Nineteen Years Old: A Tribute to Muddy Waters was put out on Taxim Records in 1997. It was produced by Billy Earl McCelland and recorded in Memphis. After signing with Blind Pig Records, Morganfield began releasing albums on that label in 1999. The first, Rising Son, was released to popular and critical acclaim.
