TORONZO CANNON

11

2016

Toronzo Cannon is recognized as one of Chicago’s most popular and exciting bluesmen. The singer, songwriter and guitarist is part of the new generation of Chicago players continuing the blues legacy of their great city. He could be considered a late bloomer, picking up the guitar during his mid-twenties and quickly unlocking his dormant dominant blues gene that has been guiding him all the way to the top of the blues charts. During the 90’s, Toronzo cut his teeth with Tommy McCracken, LV Banks and Wayne Baker Brooks before launching a solo career on Delmark records. His debut album on Alligator is a masterpiece that provides a blueprint for the modern contemporary blues sound which represents today’s generation of players. It has already earned a spot on the top Billboard charts. Media outlets are calling Toronzo the next blues great.
