Hard-Rocking Blues Guitarist and Vocalist Anthony Gomes – It All About Delivering the Blues in Technicolor With His New CD, High Voltage Blues!...

 

Interview by Robert Cavuoto

 

Anthony Gomes, the hard-rocking blues guitarist, and vocalist, will be unleashing his 13th monster album, High Voltage Blues, on September 23th via Rat Pack Records.

As with all his releases since 1997, Anthony plays guitar and takes on lead vocals to deliver fast, aggressive, and melodic songs with thought-provoking lyrics injected with a hint of tongue-in-cheek humor. High Voltage Blues is a compilation of songs from Anthony’s career, including selections from his highly successful 2020 album Containment Blues, three new studio tracks, and nine re-recorded favorites from his catalog. This album is a testament to his rebellious spirit that drives these finely crafted songs. It is packed with songs that offer big riffs and even bigger grooves like “Fur Covered Handcuffs,” “Peace, Love, and Loud Guitars,” and “Turn it Up.” Here is the link to order High Voltage Blues: https://www.ratpakrecordsamerica.com/anthonygomes

With a guitar slung over his shoulder and the amps turned up full tilt, Anthony Gomes electrifies blues and rock at a 21st century crossroads of his own. Born and raised in Toronto, Ontario, he fell in love with music as a kid, listening to everyone from Muddy Waters and Jimi Hendrix to Jeff Beck and Eddie Van Halen. At 14 years old, Anthony gravitated to the guitar and his relationship with the instrument was born. After grinding it out, his chops caught the attention of B.B. King’s bus driver at a jam night. Blown away, the driver introduced him to B.B. who invited him to open a string of tour dates in 2005. Gaining invaluable knowledge from “The King,” he went on to share the stage with the likes of Buddy Guy, Robert Plant, Joe Bonamassa, Heart, Sammy Hagar, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, and more. 2018’s Peace, Love & Loud Guitars vaulted to #1 on the iTunes Top Blues Albums Chart and #1 on Amazon Music’s New Release Blues Chart. Meanwhile, Guitar World readers voted him one of “The 30 Best Blues Guitarists in the World Today” in 2019, and the publication noted, “Gomes is another power player who is at his best when his gear is in the scorched earth between blues and rock.” After seven consecutive Top 10 debuts on the Billboard Blues Albums Chart, Containment Blues marked his second #1 on the respective chart in 2020. In 2022, he makes his Rat Pak Records debut with High Voltage Blues, amplifying his soul and spirit like never before.
