With a collection of 21 albums it’s no wonder Gary Hoey is listed as one of the top 100 guitarists of all time. His latest album, “Neon Highway Blues,” just released in March debuted at #2 on the Billboard charts.
Whether he’s playing scorching originals or classic rock covers, his solos are thrilling and reminiscent of Clapton or Stevie Ray in their fiery youth. One thing that remains consistent is Hoey’s impassioned command of the guitar. He can attack his instrument with feral intensity and then play something very soft and achingly beautiful. This ability to mix feeling, phrasing, technique and tone is the true mark of a master guitarist.
“It’s great to hear Gary sing and play the blues with his trademark intensity, feel and authenticity. And the guitar tones…both vintage and modern at the same time.” – Joe Satriani.
