Delbert McClinton was born in Lubbock (Texas) in 1940 and is a singer, songwriter, guitarist, harmonica player, and pianist. He began his musical journey in the late 1950s with the Straitjackets; a bar band that was also the backing band for renowned blues artists Sonny Boy Williamson II, Howlin' Wolf, Lightnin' Hopkins, and Jimmy Reed. He went on to hone his craft for nearly two decades before he became a bona fide solo artist.
