‘HANGING ON A LOSER’
Hanging On A Loser is the stunning latest single from blues guitar legend and 2 time Grammy nominated Joe Bonamassa, ahead of further UK headline dates (including two at the world famous Royal Albert Hall) this April and May, taken from sensational latest album Time Clocks
‘Time Clocks’ is a collection that sheds new light on Joe’s life as a journeyman, constantly creating and always on the run. As “Notches” and “The Heart That Never Waits” would suggest, this album shows that even though Joe chose the road less travelled, it’s led him to success in the end. And he’s not backing down any time soon. A bit older in years, but wiser in knowledge earned, his new sound has a raw and vital flavour, combined with a resolute skill that can only be gained through years of perseverance and unyielding dedication. ‘Time Clocks’ follows Joe on his never ceasing evolution as he continues to forge ahead, bending genres, breaking down walls and defying the odds of the music industry.
For recording the latest studio album, Bonamassa hit the studio with longtime collaborators Kevin Shirley as producer and manager/business partner Roy Weisman as executive producer. Recorded in New York City at Germano Studios/The Hit Factory the band includes Steve Mackey (bass), Lachy Doley (piano), Bunna Lawrie (didgeridoo), Bobby Summerfield (percussion), and Late Night with David Letterman‘s Anton Fig (drums and percussion), along with Mahalia Barnes, Juanita Tippins, and Prinnie Stevens on backing vocals. The album was mixed by Bob Clearmountain (Bruce Springsteen, The Rolling Stones, Toto, Bon Jovi) and the fantastic artwork on this album was created by famous graphic artist Hugh Syme (Rush, Aerosmith, Whitesnake).
Now, maybe more than ever, Bonamassa holds the power of controlling both his artistry and his business in both hands. With 25 #1 albums, yearly sold-out tours worldwide and custom annual cruises, he’s a hard act to beat. Joe knows his worth, and albeit humble, he has no plans to back down now. It’s Joe Bonamassa at his finest, ready to rock.
