MUSIC WORKS INTERNATIONAL WELCOMES BLUES LEGEND TAJ MAHAL TO ROSTER
International booking agency celebrates the legacy of blues music with new signing
Boston, MA | August 21, 2019 — Music Works International, the industry leader in the development of jazz, world, blues, and roots touring artists continues to expand its international relationships through artist development and strategic partnerships.
As a three-time GRAMMY winner, with nearly 70 recordings to his credit, Taj Mahal joins the MWI international touring roster. In his 50-plus year career, Mahal has reached icon status as a singer-songwriter, composer, guitarist, and multi-instrumentalist. His love for music began as a boy in Springfield, Massachusetts, growing up with a gospel choir singing mother and his jazz pianist father, who, in addition to traditional jazz, introduced him to the music of the Caribbean, Africa, and South Pacific. This became the foundation for his musical journey throughout.
Living legend and master of the blues, Taj Mahal is one of the most recognized names in Blues music worldwide and has done much to reshape and redefine its sound by incorporating nontraditional world music into his work.
“We are honored to have Taj Mahal join our roster of artists. He is truly an international treasure and to have him among our touring clients is an incredible thrill for our team,” says Music Works International’s Katherine McVicker, adding, “our agency’s continued success is built on our ability to balance the support of touring legends while continuing to grow the careers of developing artists.” MWI represents Taj Mahal worldwide excluding Australia, North America, and South America.
