Robert Cray Sets New Album Release
roduced by famed rocker Kevin Shirley (Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin) Nothin But Love captures Cray at his finest with material from all four Robert Cray Band members; Cray (vocals/guitar), Jim Pugh (keyboards), Richard Cousins (bass) and Tony Braunagel (drums) that blends blues, rock, soul and jazz.
Recorded at Revolver Studios in LA, the ten song CD features the soaring breakup blues of "Won't Be Coming Home," the jazz chops of "I'll Always Remember You," the soul-drenched ode to repossession "Great Big Old House" and the frantic '50s-flavoured rocker "Side Dish."
Recently inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame (at 57 years, the youngest living inductee) Cray is considered "one of the greatest guitarists of his generation." Rolling Stone Magazine (April 2011) credits Cray's Strong Persuader with reinventing the blues with his "distinct razor sharp guitar playing" that "introduced a new generation of mainstream rock fans to the language and form of the blues."
Cray has recorded fifteen Billboard charting studio albums, performed thousands of sold out shows, and has written or played with everyone from Eric Clapton to Stevie Ray Vaughan, from Bonnie Raitt to John Lee Hooker.
