Joe Bonamassa
Blues rock phenom Joe Bonamassa is back with his eleventh full length studio album, Different Shades Of Blue. The release is part of a busy 2014 for Joe. Other projects include: a live DVD/Blu-ray plus 2-disc companion CD from the neo-funk/jazz combo Rock Candy Funk Party, a live CD/DVD/Blu-ray with singer Beth Hart filmed at Amsterdam’s famed Carre Theatre, and a 4-disc CD package of Tour De Force: Live In London, Bonamassa’s career retrospective recorded and filmed at concerts at four iconic London venues. “Sometimes journalists just shake their heads, and ask me ‘Isn’t it risky?,’” says Joe. “But I say why not do it? Why play it safe? I want to diversify, not just always have it be business as usual.” Download “Get Back My Tomorrow” from Different Shades Of Blue and see what else Joe Bonamassa is up to at his Official Website, “Like” him on Facebook, and follow him on Twitter.
