A Lyric favorite, Albert Cummings returns to rock the house with his searing Stratocaster licks and crowd-pleasing, high energy blues. Cummings, the 2008 BluesWax Blues Artist of the Year, never fails to deliver a powerful performance. Whether he’s covering a classic like Merle Haggard’s “Working Man Blues” or putting across one of his own incredibly original tunes, Cummings brings the crowd to its feet with his emotional vocals and stunning guitar pyrotechnics.
“Southwest Blues Magazine” calls Cummings a “. . . major new talent in pop-oriented blues-rock,” with songs that feature “. . . meaningful lyrics, catching and untraditional rhythms, plus the right amount of crankin’ and screechin’ electric guitar.”
“Blues Rocker” says of Cummings: “He is a gifted songwriter, a passionate vocalist and a ferocious guitarist who can gently pull on your heart strings with a sensitive ballad, but then ignite in explosive fury like an inbound meteor on a Texas blues/rock tune.” It adds up to a performance you won’t want to miss!
