Jovin Webb Signs with Blind Pig Records
Blind Pig Records is thrilled to announce the signing of powerhouse singer Jovin Webb. Born and raised in Louisiana, his gritty vocals, dynamic style, and captivating stage presence promise to make him one of the world’s most exciting new blues and roots artists.
Webb quickly gained widespread recognition in 2020 for his appearances on ABC's American Idol, amassing tens of thousands of fans on various social media platforms. Back home, he’s been a prominent fixture on the music scene from Baton Rouge to New Orleans, performing 5-6 shows per week for the past few years.
Jeff Schroedl of Blind Pig Records says, “Jovin’s music radiates soulful Louisiana blues, and his combination of passion, talent, and heart is contagious. We’re extremely excited to welcome him to the label and look forward to supporting his growth as an artist, writer, and performer.”
Webb hopes to honor the rich tradition of blues and soul music that has inspired him since he was a young boy playing drums in the gospel band of his local Baptist church. “I’ve waited all my life for this opportunity and am honored to team up with Blind Pig. This is just the beginning and I’m looking forward to many years of creating and sharing music with y’all.”
R&B legend Lionel Richie, after hearing Webb for the first time said, “This is what barbecue sauce sounds like,” and country music star Luke Bryan commented, “I could sit and drink a lot of bourbon listening to that voice.”
Webb, in addition to his exceptional vocal ability and drumming background, also plays harmonica, guitar, and piano.
Current plans call for recording to begin in early 2024, with the first album under the multi-record deal to be released later in the year.
