A lot of you asked about the stripped down versions of the new album we played on the radio and record store tour. Happy to announce we’ll be dropping some live tracks and B-Sides this summer. Look for “Nothing But The Blues- Live and Stripped” on June 9th. We loved doing a juke joint style version of these and hope you dig it as well!
Very proud to be a part of this and hope each one of you will tune in. This Sunday May 31st at 3pm Eastern @joebonamassa and @keepingthebluesalive are doing a telethon for the “Fueling Musicians” charity. Amazing lineup of talent on deck, and a really great cause. If you are a guitar or blues fan this is going to be epic. You can stream it live from Joe’s YouTube channel, Facebook, website etc. Set your alarms and we’ll see you there. https://youtu.be/kJcalkgy_Ec
Check out my interview with The Cold Stares! We talked about musical influences, how they were found by Joe Bonamassa, best bands they’ve seen live, and much more! Make sure to give these guys a follow/like!
“I hope music is a release from those exact things that divide us. All music. I want to get as far away from that division as I can, personally. Many acts I love have had political statements, lyrics, causes, platforms and so on. That doesn’t have anything to do with what I love about their art, whether I agree with them or not.” – Brian Mullins of The Cold Stares
Their latest release Ways features thirteen tracks illustrative of the musical maelstrom these two musicians conjure; the wall of sound conjured by two musicians impress live attendees without fail. Mullins and Tapp boast an impressive discography, but show no signs of slowing down – Ways is the band’s most fully realized effort yet and demonstrates continued exponential songwriting growth.

“Ways” Oh she had her ways Ways like a woman child Said she’d never stay Thought of it just drove her wild Mother wasn’t worth a damn You know her father didn’t care So she painted it upon her face And combed it through her hair
She’s the queen of broken hearts Wrote the script and played the part Patron saint of love betrayed Oh that girl she had her ways
Oh she had her ways Ways like a wounded child Day after day All he did was criticize He’d say she wasn’t worth a damn Said her friends they didn’t care So she painted it upon her face And combed it through her hair
She’s the queen of broken hearts Wrote the script and played the part Patron saint of love betrayed Oh that girl she had her ways…
