Joe Bonamassa held the helm in maintaining the popularity of blues-rock in the modern music scene. Growing up exposed to old-school blues rock, he was inspired by artists like Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and many more. At a young age, he was discovered to have a knack for stringed instruments, primarily in guitar playing. He was considered prodigious, and he received attention during his teenage years. He finally broke out in the music scene well into the 2000s. He continues to maintain exemplary music to this day.
Joseph Leonard Bonamassa came into an age in Utica, New York. He started playing the guitar when he was four, influenced by his father, an avid blues-rock fan. Among their go-to bonding was listening to records by Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck. When he turned eleven, legendary guitarist Danny Gatton took an interest in him and taught him to play. Through Gatton's mentoring, Bonamassa's talent for the instrument was honed. By 12, he already had a band called Smokin' Joe Bonamassa, which toured around New York and Pennsylvania. He then received the opportunity to open for blues artist B.B. King's tour in 1989. Right after this, he joined the blues-rock band Bloodline, formed by the sons of multiple rock stars.
When Bonamassa became a seasoned musician, he wanted to pursue a solo career. His debut, "A New Day Yesterday," went public in 2000. He was well supported during this release, signified when he featured legendary rock singer Gregg Allman in his track "If Heartaches Were Nickels." This album was a blues success, reaching the ninth spot on the Billboard Blues chart. The four albums he released after ( "So, It's Like Tha," "Blues Deluxe," "Had to Cry Today," and "You & Me") were consistently top one on Billboard's Blues charts. "Sloe Gin" (2007) and "The Ballad of John Henry" (2009) also reached the top ten. In 2009, his dream came true when he performed at the Royal Albert Hall in London with his idol Eric Clapton.
In the following years, he released nine more studio albums, 15 more solo live albums, and many collaboration albums with bands.
On his 2023 fall tour, the blues rock prodigy will perform at the Embassy Theatre on November 17. See you there!
