Biography

A guitar prodigy who opened
for B.B. King at age 12, Joe Bonamassa, born May 8, 1977 in New Hartford, New
York, quickly established himself as a master guitarist and one of the leading
blues musicians of his generation. He first started playing guitar at the age
of four, and was soon giving renditions of Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jimi Hendrix
songs. He gigged in local bars and was mentored by rockabilly hero Danny
Gatton. After cutting his teeth with the band Bloodline, Bonamassa released his
debut solo album 2000’s A New Day Yesterday to great acclaim. A natural
successor to the likes of Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Rory Gallagher, he topped
the US Blues Charts seven times, thrilling with his searing renditions of the
Delta Blues songbook and his own contemporary compositions. Bonamassa went on
to play at the Royal Albert Hall, reaching number 2 in the UK Charts with his
eleventh studio album, 2012’s Driving Towards the Daylight and performing
with a host of his guitar heroes, while also playing with the supergroup Black
Country Communion. In 2013 he was nominated for a Grammy Award with Beth Hart
for their collaborative album SeeSaw. Although unsuccessful with the
award, the album topped the Billboard Top Blues Albums Chart and led the way to
his next solo offering, Different Shades of Blue, his first top ten
album in the U.S. The title track went to number 2 on the Digital Blues singles
chart. He was awarded a Blues Music Award in 2015, and in 2018 he made his
debut at the Grand Ole Opry performing alongside Chase Bryant on his song “I
Need a Cold Beer”
.
His 2019 Christmas album was followed in 2020 by Royal
Tea
