Born in 1999, Christone “Kingfish” Ingram was exposed to the rich gospel music emanating from his family’s church, as well as the Blues he heard being played by musicians in his Delta neighborhood. Kingfish studied music at the Delta Blues Museum under the tutelage of Daddy Rich and Bill Howl-N-Madd Perry, and being a cousin to the legendary country music singer Charlie Pride, he became a natural sponge of musical talent.
At the very young age of 6, Kingfish began playing the drums. Three years later at the age of 9, he took up the bass guitar. At the age of 11, he began playing lead guitar. By the age of 14, he had mastered all three instruments and has added vocals to his ever growing list of talents. Kingfish's guitar influences run the gamut from the Delta Blues of Robert Johnson, Elmore James, Muddy Waters, and Lightnin' Hopkins to the Electric Blues of B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Albert King, Stevie Ray Vaughn, and Jimi Hendrix.
Kingfish has played venues and festivals all over the U.S., and has appeared as a guest on the Rachael Ray Show and the Steve Harvey Show. He has also performed in a special engagement at The White House for First Lady Michelle Obama. Kingfish has already shared the stage with many music greats such as Bob Margolin, Eric Gales, Rick Derringer, Guitar Shorty, Buddy Guy, and many more.
