Chicago born and bred blues guitarist/singer/songwriter Toronzo Cannon is keeping the city’s blues flame blazing with The Chicago Way. With searing guitar licks, fresh lyrics delivered with soul-tinged vocals and a Windy City pedigree, Cannon is set to become the next big thing in blues.
Produced by Alligator president Bruce Iglauer and Cannon,
The Chicago Way is an exhilarating showcase for Toronzo’s vision for contemporary blues. Playing all self-penned material, Toronzo’s lyrics sting just as hard as his fretwork, and his singing resonates instantly with a gruff soulfulness that begs for repeated listening. From frisky shuffles and hard blues
to buttery ballads and funky R&B, Toronzo Cannon blends all the flavors of Chicago blues and makes them his own.
