Sonny Landreth

(USA)  Blues

"There are chords that chime, dance atop the beat, mutate in midair or huff like a harmonica. There are fast-picked overtones that arrive like a tuned hailstorm and gutsy nuances of distortion and feedback. The effects can be startling, but they're never gratuitous. They are the sounds of a musician who has deeply investigated his instrument without leaving his roots." — The New York Times
