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!
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.
November 15th our new video for the single “Into Black” will premiere on the @classicrockmag website. The following week on November 22nd the single officially drops worldwide. Thanks to everyone at radio stations around the globe that are already spinning “Into Black” and of course @kroq 106.7 Los Angeles
“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…
“What Happened To You” will be a free download for anyone pre-saving the full WAYS album. We will have a link soon, and if you have already pre-saved the album message us and we will send you the download link. Hope you dig it-
Folks, I can’t begin to say what this means to us or how humbling it is. Lots of stuff going on behind the scenes that I wanted to share but didn’t want to spoil, Joe trying to help us is one. Don’t even have the words to express my gratitude at the moment. PLEASE if you’re a fan/friend of the band drop by Joe Bonamassa on Instagram and show him some love on this post, would mean the world to us. Thank you!
