Guitarist Jonathon Long to Hold a Live Album Recording
Guitarist Jonathon Long picked his beloved hometown of Baton Rouge for a Live Album Recording, happening Friday, January 18, at Phil Brady's Blues Club, 4848 Government St. 8pm. Free. Info: (225) 927-3786 or visit https://www.facebook.com/philbradys.bar/.
Accompanying Long on this special night: Star blues guitarist Samantha Fish, who is not only producing the live album, but will certainly join him onstage that night for a song or two! Fish previously produced and released Long's well-received 2018 album, Jonathon Long, on her Wild Heart Records label, as she will be doing for this live recording.
2019 starts on a blazing note for the talented musician, with Long nominated for three Offbeat Magazine 'Best Of The Beat' Music Awards: "Best Blues Artist," "Best Guitarist," and "Best Blues Album." Vote here (voting ends January 15). This coming August, Jonathon performs as part of a star-studded "Keeping The Blues Alive At Sea" Mediterranean Cruise with Joe Bonamossa, Peter Frampton, and others in Barcelona, Spain.
Long's new video "Pray For Me" was recently exclusively premiered by Vintage Guitar Magazine. As their Video Of The Week, Rock And Blues Muse writes, "With a distinct blues-rock vibe, Long integrates interesting chord changes and scorching vocals. Don't miss the brief acoustic, stripped down part of the song at the tail end of the track. It's beautiful."
