Single, Everything You Need, Doyle Bramhall II, Rock and Blues Muse

Singer, songwriter, guitarist, Doyle Bramhall II releases a new single “Everything You Need” feat. Eric Clapton from his upcoming album, ‘Shades,’ due out October 5th 2018 on Provogue Records.

‘Shades’ features guest appearances by Eric Clapton, Norah Jones and the Tedeschi Trucks Band.

Over the last few decades, Doyle Bramhall II has established himself as one of the most distinctive and sought after guitarists, performing with Roger Waters, Elton John, Gregg Allman, Allen Toussaint, and T-Bone Burnett, to name a few. More significantly, Bramhall has spent over a decade as Eric Clapton’s musical right-hand man, collaborating closely with the legendary guitarist both in the studio and on stage.

Bramhall II is the son of the late Texas music legend Doyle Bramhall, and plays left handed but strung for a right-hander and flipped backwards guitar. Early in his career, he was befriended and supported by SRV. When he was 18 yrs. old, he was recruited by Jimmie to play with the Fabulous Thunderbirds. After Stevie’s death, Bramhall II and Charlie Sexton formed the Arc Angels with SRV’s Double Trouble rhythm section of drummer, Chis Layton and bassist Tommy Shannon.

‘Shades’ is a spellbinding blend of grungy blues, raucous rock, transcendent psychedelia and soothing soul-stirring ballads. Listen to “Everything You Need” featuring blistering guitar with between Doyle Bramhall II and Eric Clapton.

    Very nice Martine. A bit of a pop sound. I enjoy Eric’s short but intense solo. Sessions For Robert J is a nice DVD you might want to explore sometime that Eric put out with Doyle by his side. Doyle, like Albert King, is hard to watch as they both play upside down, but they sure have great tone!! I’ll explore this more, thanks Martine.

      Thanks. True, I thought more of an R&B sound but you might be right. Thanks for the tip on Sessions for Robert J. Doyle and Albert King do sure have great tone and both are such fantastic players. Thanks for your comment.

    Thanks for the Review and Heads up on the upcoming Album… having followed Doyle Brahmall II for the last 20 years from his work with Guitarist Charlie Sexton and Arc Angels .. to Worning with Roger Waters solo tours.. to Eric Clapton’s Crossroads… Listening to ‘Everthi g you Newd’ kinda was a let down.. my first impression is it was made for Radio Air Play… I liked the shirt Alrin solo insert.. could just as easily had Binet James in Sax ease in in that to.. has a late 70’s kinda sound to it… I would have to hear the whole album before passing on this one as a Texas Blues Rock song.. but it may grow on me with a glass of wine..
