JOE BONAMASSA RELEASES NEW ALBUM ‘BLUES OF DESPERATION’ IN MARCH 2016!

imagesGrammy-nominated blues-rock guitarist Joe Bonamassa announces that his brand new studio solo album, ‘Blues Of Desperation’, will be released 25th March 2016.

Like his previous solo disc, 2014’s Top 10 Billboard hit ‘Different Shades of Blue’, the new album features all-original material, and it sees the maverick superstar guitarist, singer and songwriter he continues to reinvent and redefine the blues-rock genre like no other artist working today.

The writing sessions for ‘Blues Of Desperation’ took Bonamassa back to Nashville, where he’d composed ‘Different Shades of Blue’, to work with some of Music City’s top tunesmiths, people like James House, Tom Hambridge, Jeffrey Steele, Jerry Flowers and Gary Nicholson.

Bonamassa and his long-time producer Kevin Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Iron Maiden, Journey) convened at Nashville’s Grand Victor Sound Studios (formerly known as RCA Studio A), and during an intense, five-day period they recorded 11 galvanizing songs.

The sessions contained a crack group of musicians including drummers Anton Fig and Greg Morrow, bassist Michael Rhodes, keyboardist Reese Wynans, horn players Lee Thornburg, Paulie Cerra and Mark Douthit, and background singers Mahalia Barnes, Jade McRae and Juanita Tippins.

Joe Bonamassa can be seen in the UK on the following dates:

SATURDAY 19th MARCH 2016 – BIRMINGHAM BARCLAYCARD ARENA
SUNDAY 20th MARCH 2016 – BOURNEMOUTH BIC **RESCHEDULED DATE**
