Joe Bonamassa – an Insight into the Man and Artiste Behind the Music written by: Esmy2011 A gifted guitar player since his childhood, he is currently an accomplished American Blues Rock artiste with 15 Albums, several concerts and awards to his name. Here is a comprehensive insight into his life and career.
Born in May 8, 1977 in New York, Bonamassa was exposed to his current genre of music at a tender age by his father, himself an avid fan of British Blues Rock records. Consequently, he began playing guitar at a very tender age, and by the age of 12 already had a fully formed band with his name on it, “Smokin’ Joe Bonamassa.”
It was when performing that he was asked by several fans and industry players to enlist for B.B. King, after which he went on to play in several other bands. It was around this time when his music career began taking off.
While his singing life started back when he was still a kid, Bonamassa officially came of his niche’s spotlight in 2000 when he released his debut album titled “A New Day Yesterday,” which picked the number 9 position on the billboards.
Several other albums, some of which bagged the top position on the billboard, would follow this. His solo albums from 2000 to 2014 include:
• A New Day Yesterday
•So, It’s Like That
• Blues Deluxe
• Had To Cry Today
• You & Me
• Sloe Gin
• The Ballad of John Kerry
• Black Rock
• Dust Bowl
• Driving Towards the Daylight
• Different Shades of Blue
