At 25, Joe Bonamassa is already a 13-year veteran of the music industry. Having toured the U.S. steadily since an extremely young age, the hard-working Bonamassa has maintained a passion for learning from veteran musicians and absorbing a variety of musical styles. His commitment to constant progression in his work has resulted in a unique sound on record and an unforgettable presence on stage.

After touring with several supporting musicians throughout the 90s, Joe solidified his power trio with drummer Kenny Kramme and bassist Eric Czar on the road in 2001, and tapped them once again to play on his album So, It's Like That. Kramme and Czar's driving rock groove allows Bonamassa to reach dizzying new heights on stage. A live album and concert DVD, A New Day Yesterday LIVE, was recorded in Ft. Wayne, Indiana, on the last date of his 2001 tour, documenting the arrival of a force to be reckoned with on the concert scene. The audience was floored by the band's torrid performance and Joe's elaborate, yet inherently tuneful guitar style.

Bonamassa made his national recording debut as the lead guitarist for Bloodline, a band made up - aside from Joe - of the offspring of famous musicians. Waylon Krieger was the son of Doors guitarist Robbie Krieger, drummer Erin Davis was the son of jazz giant Miles Davis, and bassist Berry Oakley Jr.'s father, Berry Sr., had been a founding member of the Allman Brothers Band. Joe co-wrote much of the original material on Bloodline's self-titled album, released in 1995.

On the road almost continuously since his debut release, Bonamassa was exposed to a wider variety of musical styles. "I've been listening to everything these days: blues, bluegrass, rock, and acoustic singer/songwriter records," he says. With this kind of ongoing growth and incredible talent, it's clear that Joe Bonamassa is one of the most exciting young artists in music.
