SELWYN BIRCHWOOD

04

DEC

2015

In 2013, Selwyn Birchwood catapulted from Florida’s local hero to shooting star. After being mentored by his former neighbor, blues legend Sonny Rhodes, he went on to win the coveted and world-renowned International Blues Challenge, beating out 125 other bands from the U.S. and abroad. He also took home the Albert King Guitarist of The Year Award. Soon after, he was signed to Alligator Records and his debut album, Don’t Call No Ambulance won a Blues Award for Debut Album, Sean Costello Rising Star Award, Living Blues Magazine Best New Artist Award and a Blues Blast Award. The young blues hero earned an MBA from the University of Tampa and sports a trademark afro while often performing barefooted. The Tampa Tribune says Birchwood plays with “power and precision reminiscent of blues guitar legend Buddy Guy.”
