Alligator Records releases 'The Chicago Way,' the label debut for electrifying Windy City bluesman Toronzo Cannon!
'The Chicago Way' - produced by Cannon and Alligator president Bruce Iglauer - is comprised of all self-penned songs, inspired by his deep, homegrown Chicago roots and powered by his blistering guitar playing and soul-baring vocals.
Cannon's songs — from searing blues anthems to swinging shuffles to soulful ballads to roof-raising rockers — tell timeless stories of common experiences in uncommon ways.
Throughout the history of Chicago blues, the intensely competitive local club scene has served as a proving ground, where only the best musicians rise to the top. Iconic blues artists from Muddy Waters to Howlin' Wolf to Koko Taylor to Hound Dog Taylor to Luther Allison all paid their dues in the Chicago blues bars before making their mark on the world. The same holds true today, as newcomers look to living legends like Buddy Guy, Eddy Clearwater and Lil' Ed Williams for inspiration in taking their music from Chicago to fans across the globe. Now, Chicago-born-and-raised blues guitarist /vocalist/ songwriter Toronzo Cannon is ready to write his own story as he claims his place as one of the city's most popular and innovative blues musicians.
