Guitarist Doyle Bramhall II, who has worked with Tedeschi Trucks Band along with a long list of iconic acts, has announced the release of his new solo album, Rich Man, which is set for release on September 30.
Rich Man will mark Bramhall’s first album in over 10 years and was influenced by the guitarist’s many collaborations as well as his trips to India and Africa following the death of his father. Norah Jones also guests on one of the album’s tracks.
As Bramhall says, the album is “not one thing stylistically, but a lot of sounds that come out of my life experiences and travels—and what I’m affected and inspired by.”
“I’d been so busy touring and producing for other artists. But producing actually gave me chops I didn’t have—and a focus on what I wanted to sound like. So all the stars finally aligned to allow me to be completely myself as an artist for the first time—singer, guitar player, producer—and take things that were happening in my life and put them into song.”
