Critically acclaimed blues rock guitarist Eric Gales returns to the UK following the release of his studio album Crown produced by and featuring Joe Bonamassa.

Over 30 years and 18 albums, his passion for the music and his boundless desire to keep it vital has never waned, even when his own light dimmed due to his substance struggles. Since 1991, the Memphis-born guitarist has blazed a path reinvigorating the blues with a virtuosity and rock swagger that have him being heralded as the second coming of Jimi Hendrix. He was a child prodigy with bottomless talent and fierce determination, and at just 16 years-old released his debut, The Eric Gales Band, on Elektra Records.

The hotly tipped new CD finds Eric opening up like never before, sharing his struggles with substance abuse, his hopes about a new era of sobriety and unbridled creativity, and his personal reflections on racism. Five years sober, creatively rejuvenated, and sagely insightful, the songs on Crown are delivered with clarity and feature Eric's personal experiences and hope for positive change.

This is Eric at his most boldly vulnerable, uncompromisingly political, and unflinchingly confident self.

with special guest Dom Martin
