Gut-bucket Blues With a Whiskey and Cigarette Chaser
Mississippi Blues Man and eight-time Mississippi Music Awards nominee Kevin Waide is a lead guitarist specializing in slide guitar, 8 and 12-bar blues progressions, and original material. From Tupelo, MS (birthplace of Elvis Presley), his bio reads much like the legends he has shared the stage with; artists such as, Cedric, Duwayne, and Garry Burnside, Lightnin' Malcolm, Sam Mosley, Richard Johnston, Eden Brent, etc.
During an interview with Local Licks on WLQZ Z98.5FM, Kevin described his musical influences. “Albert King and Buddy Guy are my two biggest influences, but that came about later. In the beginning, I wanted to be Paul Stanley. I loved KISS. I can still play every song, note for note, in order, from the first 10 albums... I started learning lead guitar by listening to Ace Frehley's solos.” At any given show, you’ll find Kevin Waide skillfully in control of his Johnson Swamp Stomper Resonator and any one of his Stratocasters.
Throughout Mississippi, Alabama, and Tennessee, you will find Kevin Waide performing as a solo artist or as the frontman of The Kevin Waide Project (a.k.a. KWP or The Project). As a solo artist/singer/songwriter, Kevin Waide was featured along side Sam Mosely and Kit Thorn at the debut of “Local Licks “Live” at The Basement in New Albany, MS.” Other notable performances include:

His debut album, “Lost In Mississippi”, was well received. Several tunes from this album were chosen for two separate films: ”The Gum Tree Chronicles, Part 2” (Documentary) and "Fish Story: The Curse Of Mocatawbi Pond”.
His sophomore album, “Booze, Blues & BBQ”, was released worldwide August 2013, and contained the single, "Call My Name." The album featured Chris "The Immortal SuperFoosh" Fooshee on drums, newcomer Blake "Miller Time" Miller on bass and a special appearance by "The Infamous" Skip Oliver on harmonica. The album takes the listener down ‘the Blues Highway’ with brand new songs, as well as favorites from the debut album "Lost In Mississippi.”
The latest Project album, “Almost The Marrying Kind” was released in 2016 and contains the self-titled song, “Kevin’s Blues”. Also included on this album is a touching instrumental piece titled “A Little Piece of Heaven,” which is touching the hearts of those who hear it.
"Kevin Waide is happiest when he’s got the blues."
