Grady Champion has been captivating audiences for two decades with his high energy blues that represents who he is and where he’s from. Who he is, is a Grammy-award winning songwriter, Malaco recording artist who recently graced the cover of Living Blues Magazine and 2010 winner of the coveted International Blues Challenge. Where he’s from is the birthplace of the blues, Mississippi; the place where he was raised in a religious rural family as the youngest of 28 children. During his career as a rap artist, the blues came calling and he never looked back releasing several critically acclaimed albums which included notable songs with social commentary like “Police Man Blues” and “Children of the Corn.” He released his upbeat sophomore effort for famed Malaco records in September, “One of a Kind.”
