Doyle Bramhall II is one of today’s most distinctive vocalists, guitarists, composers, and producers in contemporary music. Indeed, none other than Eric Clapton, with whom Bramhall has worked with for more than a decade, lauds him as one of the most gifted guitarists he has ever encountered. As the son of the late Texas music legend Doyle Bramhall, he was raised in a home filled with the blues and rock ‘n’ roll styles indigenous to Texas as well as having close ties with the Vaughan Brothers, Stevie Ray and Jimmie. In addition to his work with Clapton, Bramhall became an in demand composer, guitarist and producer and has worked with major artists including T-Bone Burnett, Elton John, Gary Clark, Jr., Gregg Allman, Dr. John, Robert Randolph, Allen Toussaint, Derek Trucks, Sheryl Crow, and many others. His latest release, Rich Man, is a watershed achievement for Bramhall, both in terms of the many music styles in the tracks-which begin and end with his fundamental American blues influences and in between follow his global music explorations and arrangements and the inner examinations resulting in the spiritual growth expressed in the lyrics.
