Steve Winwood has announced plans for a fall U.S. tour, kicking off Sept. 18 in Austin, Texas, and wrapping Oct. 12 in Philadelphia. The outing comes in support of his first solo album in seven years, "About Time," released on his own Wincraft Music label. The set debuted earlier this month at No. 4 on Billboard's Top Independent Albums chart.
Wincraft is administered through the String Cheese Incident's Sci Fidelity Records. And while Winwood told Billboard he hadn't been specifically influenced by String Cheese's music, he said, "I think I have been influenced by who the audience is or by the radio a bit more than I would have wanted to be in the past, which has led to me making a record like this. I hadn't made the record I exactly wanted to make on my few previous efforts, for whatever reason. With this one, I just felt that I knew what I wanted to do -- whether anyone else likes it is another question."
