Leroy Washington • Wild Cherry

March 1st, 1932: Leroy Washington was born in Palmetto, Louisiana. Washington lived in Opelousas, Louisiana, for most of his short life. A Blues singer and guitarist, Washington played and recorded Swamp Blues with the likes of J.D. Miller and Lonesome Sundown. His biggest hit was for Excello in 1958, when he recorded "Wild Cherry". Little else is known about Leroy Washington, who recorded several sessions between 1957 and 1961 for Jay Miller. He was recalled by Miller as perhaps his favorite blues guitarist. He only released a handful of sides, however, he had recorded a considerable legacy of material for Miller, which had lain unissued for decades. Washington died on June 29th, 1966 in Oakdale, Louisiana at the age of 34.
