Widely considered as one of the world's greatest guitar players, American blues rock guitarist, singer and songwriter Joe Bonamassa began playing at only four years old. By the time Bonamassa was twelve, he was gigging around New York and Western Pennsylvania at weekends as the frontman of his own band, Smokin' Joe Bonamassa. That same year, he opened twenty shows as the support act for blues legend BB King. During his later teenage years, he played with a band called Bloodline with the sons of Miles Davis, Robby Krieger, and Berry Oakley. Despite the fact that the band did not breakthrough to the mainstream, people began to hear of Bonamassa's talent. In 2000, he released his debut solo album, A New Day Yesterday, which reached number 9 on the Billboard Blues Chart. His next three studio albums all hit number 1 on the Billboard Blues charts, and all five of his solo studio albums made the top 10. In 2013, Bonamassa received his first Grammy Award Nomination for See Saw – a collaborative album with singer Beth Hart. Throughout his career, he has played with a multitude of influential artists, including Stephen Stills, Eric Clapton, Blondie Chaplin, Foreigner, Buddy Guy, Steve Winwood, Warren Haynes, and Derek Trucks among others. To date, he has released fifteen solo albums through his independent record label J&R Adventures, eleven of which have reached number 1 on the Billboard Blues charts.
