Voted by Guitar Player readers as 2007’s Best Blues Guitarist, blues-rock guitar virtuoso, vocalist, and songwriter JOE BONAMASSA is set to release his seventh solo album, SLOE GIN, on August 21, 2007. Bonamassa’s fourth release, the disc re-teams him with producer Kevin Shirley (Joe Satriani, Black Crowes, Aerosmith, Led Leppelin), who produced 2006’s YOU & ME, which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Blues Chart in June of last year.SLOE GIN effortlessly ranges through heavy blues and acoustic numbers alike, a textured flow that Bonamassa says was in part inspired by Rod Stewart’s legendary 1969 debut solo LP.

In the liner notes, Joe adds, “I sequenced the album as a throwback to the side A/side B set-up of vinyl records…listening to an album as a whole is a lost pastime. i wanted to bring that experience back around.Renowned for this fluid phrasing and post-modern fusion of traditional roots blues with rock
and roll guts, Bonamassa began playing guitar at age four, and toured with blues icon B.B. King when he was twelve. Recently, Joe was named Best Blues Guitarist in Guitar Magazine’s 2007 Reader’s Choice Awards. He is also the youngest member of the Memphis, TN-based Blues Foundation’s Board of Directors, and a spokesperson for their respected Blues in the Schools Program.
