John Lee Hooker Jr., grew up in Detroit, Michigan as the son of one of  the greatest blues and Legendary music icons in the world,  the late and the great  John Lee Hooker (1971-2001). He is a musical artist who has received multiple awards ranging from The California Music Award for Best Traditional Artist in 2004, The esteemed W.C Handy Award in 2004, and the Bay Area Music Chapter for Come Back Artist of the Year. The younger Hooker's musical style is markedly modernized, featuring contemporary arrangements with a funky big horn sound with elements of funky Gospel, with ingredients of a Johnny "Guitar" Watson sound,  with a James Brown feel, and some John Lee Hooker Sr. Boogie Beat, and also with his Daddy's work ethic, "Give the People what they want."

As a native of Detroit, Hooker was performing live on local radio stations by the time he was 8 years old, and toured with his father as a teenager and also recorded with him in the notorious Soledad State Prison with ABC Records. He struggled with drugs and alcohol for many years before reviving his career with his debut solo album, Blues with a Vengeance, in 2004. The album was nominated for a Grammy. A follow-up album, Cold as Ice, was released in 2006.
