Singin' the Blues

On New Years Eve I decided to start a new section in my blog and introduce you to some "underground" music that I think most of you aren't necessarily aware of. Today, I'm introducing you to blues artist, Joe Bonamassa.
Joe Bonamassa

There exists many great blues guitarists like Stevie Ray Vaughan, BB King, Eric Clapton. Joe might not yet be at that level, but he surely is getting there. So you can definitely see some of those influences in his music. He has been touring around the world for the past few years and FINALLY, yes FINALLY will be in Montreal on March 31 at Theatre St-Denis (click to purchase tickets here). You can also check out his full listing of tour dates and venues here.

I discovered Joe Bonamassa, because my cousin Rick from Australia actually plays in their band...and I wanted to know exactly what this was all about. Needless to say, I was quite impressed, and now I listen to Joe whenever I'm in the mood for some great soul blues music.

You can buy their CD on Itunes. Here are some of the most recent ones...

- The Ballad of John Henry (which I own) - 2009
- Joe Bonamassa - Live from Royal Albert Hall - 2009
- Black Rock - 2010

Here is his website : Joe Bonamassa's website

Here are a few of my favorite Joe Bonamassa tunes - some of the videos are a little long, you don't need to listen to them all, but I'm sure you will appreciate the great talent and maybe find a new artist to add to your repertoire.

Stop is probably one of my favorites...

Hope you enjoy!!

Let me know your thoughts!
