Lucky Peterson (born Judge Kenneth Peterson, December 13, 1964, Buffalo, New York) is an American musician who plays contemporary blues, fusing soul, R&B, gospel and rock and roll. He plays guitar and keyboards. A child prodigy who scored an R&B hit at the age of 6 with the Willie Dixon produced 1-2-2-4, Lucky Peterson was born into a musical family – his dad James Peterson owned Governor's Inn, a popular New York blues nightclub that booked the biggies.
His solo career took off when he struck up a musical relationship with Florida-based producer Bob Greenlee, and albums Lucky Strikes! and Triple Play remain two of his finest recordings. His 1992 album I'm Ready boldly mixed contemporary rock and soul into his simmering blues stew. Through the 90s and into the new Millennium he has recorded a number of well received albums for various labels including the self-produced The Son of a Bluesman in 2014 and retro-blues tinged album Travelin' Man.
