About Johnny A

Not very many guitarists have ever had their own Signature model Gibson Guitar. Of course Les Paul and Chet Atkins do… and Johnny A. How good do you have to be to have that happen? Very, Very good.

Johnny’s debut album, “Sometime Tuesday Morning” did something an instrumental guitar record never does – it became a major hit at radio. Not Jazz, not Blues, not only Rock…instead, a thoroughly unique blend of those and other musical styles that create a “pop” sensibility and broad appeal other guitarists cannot match. Though an instrumentalist, Johnny thinks like a singer as he plays, composes and improvises. “I’m always interested in dynamics and tone far more than the amount of notes played,” he explains.

He’s gained the admiration of the world’s top guitarists from Jeff Beck to BB King and led to a myriad of major appearances including Eric Clapton’s Crossroads, the Montreal Jazz Festival and Tokyo’s Fuji Rock Festival. Johnny is touring behind his fourth album, “Driven” which was released in June 2014 and once again is garnering critical acclaim.

About Albert Cummings

The blues is best served up live, with an enthusiastic audience and a killin’ band, and that’s exactly what guitarist Albert Cummings does[…]. Cummings effortlessly shifts from chimney subdued stylings to raucous roadhouse raunch to soaring yet stinging lead lines, driving his audience to frenzy in all the right places.” – Guitar Edge Magazine

Albert Cummings writes, plays and sings the blues like nobody else. He has played with blues legends B.B. King, Johnny Winter, and Buddy Guy. Taken with Albert’s fire and passion bassist Tommy Shannon and drummer Chris Layton, of the band Double Trouble, the late Stevie Ray Vaughan’s rhythm section, volunteered to play on and produce his solo debut recording, 2003’s self-released From the Heart. B.B. King dubbed Cummings “a great guitarist.”

Cummings’ soulful and explosive approach to blues and rock caught the attention of Blind Pig Records, which signed him to a multi-album deal.

Someone Like You, the latest album from master guitarist, master builder, and fan favorite Albert Cummings, marks his return to noted roots label Blind Pig Records.
