Her longest run has been with Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band, where she's recorded and toured a majority of the time, since 1973.  She was a member of Little Feat from 1993 until 2009.  Over the past two decades, Shaun Murphy has released several solo albums that have garnered accolades from her fans and the media alike.  To enter our contest to win her latest release, send us an email at classicartiststoday@yahoo.com with "Shaun Murphy Autograph CD" in the subject line.  In the email please provide us your name and email address so we can notify you if you are a winner!  Winners are randomly drawn among entries and must have a U.S. postal address to receive a copy of the CD.  The contest ends on June 19, 2016.  Be sure to listen to Classic Artists Today and Coool CAT to hear some awesome tunes by Shaun, too!!!

Classic Artist of the Month

Santana

Santana has withstood the test of time since forming in 1967, by Carlos Santana.  The Woodstock Festival in 1969, catapulted their career to the level of one of rock's premier acts.  Their first 3 albums were well received by fands and critics alike.  In 1998, the group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  Over Santana's career, they have garnered 8 Grammy Awards and have sold more than 90 million records.

In 2013, Carlos announced a reunion of the classic line-up: Neal Schon, Gregg Rollie, Mike Carabello and Michael Shrieve.  On April 15, 2016 Santana released Santana IV.  The album was the first time in 45 years that the legacy members had recorded an album together. Be  sure to tune-in to the CAT© ,  all month to hear this awesome group - and we'll spin some classic tracks, too!  All right here on Classic Artists Today©
