He has also earned multiple Blues Music Awards for “Album of the Year,” “Contemporary Blues Album of the Year” and “Contemporary Blues Male Artist of the Year.” His masterful guitar playing has inspired leading instrument makers Gibson Brands to issue the Keb’ Mo’ Signature Bluesmaster acoustic guitar and Martin Guitars to issue the HD-28KM Keb’ Mo’ Limited Edition Signature model.
