Selwyn Birchwood’s original music is defined by raw and soulful musicianship played with fire-and-brimstone fervor. Birchwood and his band won the Blues Foundation’s 2013 International Blues Challenge, which features competing bands from around the world, and Birchwood won the “Albert King Guitarist of the Year” award.

SELWYN BIRCHWOOD’s debut album, Don’t Call No Ambulance (2014 – Alligator Records), won the Blues Music Award and the Living Blues Critics’ Award for “Best Debut Album of 2014”. Since his debut, Birchwood’s meteoric rise from playing small Florida clubs to headlining international festival stages is nothing short of phenomenal.
Birchwood brought in famed GRAMMY® Award-Winner Tom Hambridge (Buddy Guy, Christone “Kingfish” Ingram, Susan Tedeschi) to produce his most recent album, Living In A Burning House (2021). The album received rave reviews and debuted at #1 on the Billboard Blues Chart and peaked at #1 on the iTunes Blues Chart. The album also won the 2022 “Song of the Year (“I’d Climb Mountains”) at the Blues Music Awards.
Birchwood’s Living In A Burning House features some of the most vividly striking writing on today’s blues scene. Birchwood’s voice and vision are clear, his sound is edgy and compelling, and his stories are memorable and lasting.
On Friday June 9, 2023 award-winning bluesman Selwyn Birchwood will release ‘Exorcist’, his highly anticipated fourth Alligator Records release.
