Doyle Bramhall II stands as one of the most distinctive vocalists, guitarists, composers and producers in contemporary music. Eric Clapton, with whom Bramhall II has collaborated for more than a decade, cites the guitarist as one of the most gifted players he has ever encountered. Bramhall II was raised in a home filled with the blues and rock & roll. His father, Doyle Bramhall, played drums for blues legends Lightning Hopkins and Freddie King. When Doyle was 18, he was recruited by Jimmie Vaughan to play with the Fabulous Thunderbirds. Bramhall II’s reputation blossomed and two years later, he co-founded the Arc Angels with Charlie Sexton and Stevie Ray Vaughan’s rhythm section; Chris Layton and Tommy Shannon.
In the aftermath of two critically acclaimed solo albums Jellycream and Welcome, Bramhall II’s unparalleled skills as guitarist won the attention of both Eric Clapton and Roger Waters. Waters showcased the guitarist on his In The Flesh tour and accompanying album. Bramhall II’s distinctive guitar work left an indelible mark on Clapton albums such as Me And Mr. Johnson and Searching For Robert J. In addition to Clapton, Bramhall II has been in demand as composer, guitarist and producer, collaborating with such as artists as Sheryl Crow, Tedeschi Trucks, Elton John, Questlove, Gary Clark Jr., Erykah Badu, Gregg Allman, Robert Randolph, T-Bone Burnett, Meshell Ndegeocello, Dr. John and many others. Bramhall has produced several records, including Crow’s popular 100 Miles From Memphis. Bramhall II released his new album “Rich Man”, launching the next chapter in an extraordinary musical journey.
A J Plug
Dutch blues singer AJ Plug was born and raised in a small fishing village off the West Coast of Holland. AJ wanted to be a singer for as long as she can remember and joined a Dutch church choir. Her time in the choir was short lived as there were too many complaints about her singing being too bluesy and using obscene language. So pretty soon she got kicked out!http://www.ajplug.nl/
