A Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Bobby Womack’s career has stretched across six decades. Kicking things off in the 1950s, Womack has been in the mix with soul music ever since. He worked closely with the legendary Sam Cooke, who discovered the young Womack in his very first band. Breaking out on his own as a solo artist, Womack went on to work with everyone from Sly Stone, Marvin Gay and Aretha Franklin to Jimi Hendrix, Ray Charles and Wilson Pickett. Even more remarkable than his star-studded resume is the fact that Womack is still making music today. His latest record, 2012’s The Bravest Man In the Universe was co-produced by Damon Albarn and XL’s Richard Russell, who have given Womack’s husky and expressive vocals a synthy supporting track with guest appearances from singers Fatoumata Diawara and Lana Del Rey.
