ALBUM ‘THE BOOKENDS’ OUT NOW VIA PROVOGUE
“One of the best, if not the best guitar player in the world” – Joe Bonamassa
“He is absolutely incredible” – Carlos Santana
“How Eric Gales isn’t the hugest name in rock guitar is a total mystery” – Dave Navarro
“This guy could be the best player on Earth” – Mark Tremonti
Eric Gales will embark on 9-date UK tour in May and June 2020. The tour follows the release of his album ‘The Bookends’ via Provogue/Mascot Label Group earlier in 2019. The album features collaborations with B. Slade, Doyle Bramhall II and Beth Hart.
Special guest on shows is the critically acclaimed British Blues rock guitarist *Danny Bryant. Danny will support the American blues-rock guitarist on 7 of the 9 dates (except for Leeds and Glasgow). Hailed as “a national blues treasure,” Bryant recently released his 11th studio album ‘Means of Escape’ via Jazzhaus Records.
The challenge for making ‘The Bookends’ was for Gales to challenge himself. “As a guitar player it’s been established that I can play a little bit, just a little bit,” he smiles. But for this album he not only wanted to push himself as a musician, but also as a vocalist, to build up his vocal discography. “What spearheaded that was the artists that I have on the record,” he says.
