The discography of Steve Winwood, a British rock artist, consists of nine studio albums, two live albums, six compilation albums, and twenty five singles. After performing in the bands, the Spencer Davis Group, Traffic, Blind Faith and Ginger Baker's Air Force, Winwood launched a solo career in 1977.

Winwood's self-titled debut album was released on Island Records in June 1977. Although the album peaked at #12 in the United Kingdom and in the Top 40 in the United States, its singles failed to gain success in either country. His second album, Arc of a Diver was issued in December 1980, certifying Platinum in the United States and Silver in the United Kingdom. The album's second track, "While You See a Chance" became a major hit in the United States, reaching #7 on the Billboard Hot 100. His 1982 follow-up album, Talking Back to the Night, did not produce any hits in the United States. However, the lead single, "Still in the Game" reached #19 on the Canadian Singles Chart and the second single, "Valerie" charted at #13 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.

Back in the High Life (1986) was aimed more towards Pop music, selling three million copies in the United States. "Higher Love" (spawned from the album) became Winwood's first number one hit on the Billboard Hot 100 and Canadian Singles Chart, while also peaking at #13 on the UK Singles Chart. "Freedom Overspill," "Back in the High Life Again," and "The Finer Things" became major hits in the United States between 1986 and 1987. His fifth album Roll with It was released on Virgin Records in 1988, spawning the title track as the lead single. The song became Winwood's second number one single on the Canadian Singles Chart and the Billboard Hot 100. However, it only became a minor hit in the United Kingdom, reaching #53. "Don't You Know What the Night Can Do?" and "Holding On" both became major hits on the Hot 100 and Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks chart in 1988. Refugees of the Heart (1990) contained more Soul-inspired elements, debuting at #26 on the UK Albums Chart and #27 on the Billboard 200. Even though its first single, "One and Only Man" was a minor UK hit, it reached #5 in Canada and #18 in the United States.

Winwood released his next album, Junction Seven in 1997, which gained mixed reviews and had less success. It was followed by 2003's About Time and 2008's Nine Lives. Steve Winwood has sold over 7 million records in the United States alone, according to the Recording Industry Association of America.[1]
