Guitar wizard Albert Cummings will make a few northwest appearances in support of his latest release, ‘Someone Like You’.
He’ll be at San Juan Community Theatre on Friday Harbor July 18 and next night, July 19 at The Triple Door.
Master builder turned master guitarist, Albert Cummings has become a favorite of fans who love soulful, explosive rocking blues. Double Trouble, the late Stevie Ray Vaughan’s rhythm section, was so impressed with Albert’s talent that they volunteered to play on and produce his debut recording in 2003.
Since then he’s established a reputation as a rare talent renowned for his uniquely muscular yet polished guitar wizardry. Billboard said his “guitar work is sizzling.” Guitar One exclaimed, “He attacks his axe with unbridled ferocity and deep soulfulness.” ‘Someone Like You’, Albert’s new studio CD, which will be released on July 24th, was produced in Los Angeles by Grammy-winner David Z, and features label-mate Jimmy Vivino (bandleader on the Conan TV show) guesting on three tracks.
Producer Z, who’s worked with Buddy Guy, Prince, Jonny Lang, and Gov’t Mule, said, “Albert Cummings writes, plays and sings the blues like nobody else. What a blast to watch him gel in the studio with some of the best musicians in Los Angeles.”
