About Joe Bonamassa: As Joe Bonamassa approaches his 26th year as a professional musician, he continues to blaze a remarkably versatile artistic trail, and amass an authentic, innovative and soulful body of work. Bonamassa's career began onstage opening for B.B. King in 1989, when he was only 12 years old. Today, he is hailed worldwide as one of the greatest guitar players of his generation, and is an ever-evolving singer-songwriter who has released 15 solo albums in the last 13 years, all on his own label, J&R Adventures. Bonamassa's tour schedule consistently hovers at around 150 shows worldwide each year, and a heaping handful of markedly diverse side projects keep him thinking outside the box and flexing every musical muscle he's got. He founded and oversees the non-profit Keeping The Blues Alive Foundation to promote the heritage of the blues to the next generation, fund music scholarships, and supplement the loss of music education in public schools. There's a case to be made that Joe Bonamassa, like another star who shared the same initials, is the hardest working man in show business.
Recent kudos for Bonamassa include his very first Grammy nomination for Best Blues Album, his twelfth #1 Billboard Blues Album (more than any other artist), and his DVD Joe Bonamassa: Live At The Royal Albert Hall, featuring Eric Clapton joining him onstage, earning platinum status.
