DON’T WAIT HIS SHOW SOLD OUT LAST TIME! His new album DEBUTED #1 ON BILLBOARD CHARTS!
Between his white-hot guitar playing and his soulful, emotional
vocals, Coco Montoya has talent to burn. In a career that spans almost
four decades, he’s gone from drumming for blues icon Albert Collins to
holding the lead guitar spot in John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers to leading
his own band and touring worldwide. Montoya is revered for his ability
to move from subtly melodic guitar playing to slash-and-burn
pyrotechnics. Equally forceful are his deep, soul-baring vocals. Years
of constant touring, playing unforgettable shows at clubs, concert halls
and festivals, have earned him his position at the top of the
contemporary blues world. And it all started with a chance meeting in
the mid-1970s with legendary bluesman Albert Collins, who offered
Montoya a spot in his band, where he stayed for the next five years.
Coco was initially hired as Collins’ drummer and later—with Albert
mentoring him on the guitar—became the band’s rhythm guitarist. A few
years after leaving Collins’ band, British blues star John Mayall heard
Coco jamming onstage and was so impressed that he hired him for the
newly reformed Bluesbreakers.
A career-defining album bursting with Montoya’s fierce guitar and
passion-laden vocals, and the first to feature his long-time road band.
Thirteen tracks of searing blues, soulful R&B and high-energy rock
& roll include ten originals, five co-written by Coco, and include
guest appearances by Ronnie Baker Brooks and Lee Roy Parnell.
Co-produced by Grammy Award-winner Tony Braunagel (Bonnie Raitt, Taj
Mahal) and Jeff Paris (Keb’ Mo’, Bill Withers).
“One of the most prodigious and gifted electric bluesmen on the
planet…a deeply soulful singer and incendiary guitarist [with] a
seemingly endless penchant for invention.” –AllMusic
