Billboard Magazine's #1 blues artist of 2010, blues-rock guitar hero and singer-songwriter Joe Bonamassa releases his twelfth solo album, Dust Bowl.

Dust Bowl combines the gritty, blues-based tones of Bonamassa's first albums with the fluid, genre-defying sounds he's mastered in the years since, plus a dose of Nashville in duets with legends John Hiatt and Vince Gill.

"Dust Bowl," producer Kevin Shirley explains, "is very firmly rooted in the blues, but definitely explores the outer reaches of the genre and showcases Joe's amazing virtuosity as he digs deep into his psyche in some lengthy and blistering guitar solos."

"This is the best album we've ever done," adds Bonamassa. "I'm finding more inspiration in storytelling in my 30s, in writing songs that are about something more profound than 'my baby left me.' I like albums that are made with the right intentions and sound organic and a little rough around the edges, like a great band playing live in the room, and that's what we accomplished with Dust Bowl."

Dust Bowl benefits from collaborations with the best of Nashville, legends Vince Gill and John Hiatt. Gill lends his signature guitar stylings to the John Hiatt/John Porter-penned "Tennessee Plates," on which Hiatt duets with Bonamassa. Gill also plays on "Sweet Rowena," a song he composed with frequent writing partner Pete Wasner. Arlan Scheirbaum, Beth Hart, and Blondie Chaplin play on the Michael Kamen/Tim Curry track "No Love On The Street," and Glenn Hughes sings on the Paul Rodgers-penned "Heartbreaker."

Other standout tracks include Bonamassa originals that showcase his storytelling, such as the album opener "Slow Train," an old-style British Blues song, "Black Lung Heartache," "The Last Matador of Bayonne," "The Whale That Swallowed Jonah," and the title song "Dust Bowl." From the Label

"The best guitarist you have never heard of" has been said many times about Joe Bonamassa. Nowadays many HAVE heard of him and those who have are huge fans. This latest album shows his diversity and range of talent with songs ranging from country to classic blues to one previously recorded by Streisand. He leaves his distinctive mark on them all, yet stretches his wings and shows off new ideas. I'm having a hard time picking a favorite track. Slow Train, Dust Bowl, Meaning of the Blues all take you straight to Blues Heaven. Last Matador cries so sweet. Whale that Swallowed Jonah picks you up and swings you around. John Hiatt, Glenn Hughes, Vince Gill and Beth Hart join in on vocals but Joe's voice outshines them all. Try this album if you are new to Bonamassa, it is a must have for those already fans. And if you ever have the chance, you have to see this man live on stage. He puts on an incredible show.

I love this CD. Bursting with gut wrenching blues and screaming rock. He just keeps getting better and better. "Last Matador of Bayonne".is songwriting at it's best.
