Chicago-based slide guitar virtuoso and singer-songwriter, Joanna Connor, best known as one of the reigning Queens of blues rock guitar, releases her 14th album on Joe Bonamassa's new independent record label Keeping The Blues Alive. Her new album '4801 South Indiana Avenue' has topped at #1 on US Billboard 100 Charts. The new album, the follow up to her critically acclaimed studio album "Rise," was produced by Joe Bonamassa in Nashville. Joanna and Joe and the rest of the musicians on the album dug deeply and conjured up an authentic, alive and kicking set of Chicago Blues.
Eamonn McCormack is an Irish born blues rock guitarist. Throughout the last decade or so saw a young Eamonn play, tour and record with many of his earliest guitar influences such as Rory Gallagher, Johnny Winter, Jan Akkerman (ex. Focus) Pat Travers, Walter Trout, Brian “Robbo” Robertson (Thin Lizzy, Motöread) and Nils Lofgren. Eamonn also got to play the prestige Rockpalast in Germany on the bill with Lynyrd Skynyrd & The Band, that was televised and broadcast right across Europe. Eamonn and his band have most often, been described by the press as "A Modern Day Power Trio" and that is something that has not changed to this day, and performances both live and in the studio are a force to be reckoned with.
His best of album “Kindred Spirits” was a great success and featured older tracks with special guests Rory Gallagher, Jan Akkerman, Herman Brood and Keith Donald. He took a short break from the road and toured around Mexico, US & Hong Kong. The album was very well received and it put him back full time firmly on the road as a recording/touring artist.

The album “Like there’s no Tomorrow”literally achieved five star reviews across the board.
The highlight to 2019 and the end of a decade, was Eamonn being invited to perform again on Rockpalast in Germany alongside Kenny Wayne Shepherd & Kris Barras Band.
Eamonn and his young band blew the roof off Rockpalast then headed straight into a studio along with German Star producer Arne Wiegand and recorded his seventh album titled: “Storyteller” with eleven versatile original tracks penned by Eamonn and they are all stories! Featuring Edgar Karg on bass guitar & Max Jung-Poppe on drums and percussion.
