Doyle Bramhall II stands as one of the most distinctive vocalist, guitarist, composer and producer in contemporary music. Eric Clapton, with whom Bramhall has collaborated for more than a decade, calls him "one of the most gifted guitar players I have ever encountered."
Doyle was raised in a home filled with the blues and rock & roll sounds that are indigenous to Texas; the state of his birth. His father, Doyle Bramhall the first, played drums for blues legends Lightning Hopkins andFreddie King and was also an accomplished songwriter and vocalist. Bramhall was a lifelong collaborator with childhood friends, Stevie Ray and Jimmie Vaughan, composing such signature classics as “Change It” and “Life By The Drop”.
At 18, Bramhall was recruited by Jimmie Vaughan to play with The Fabulous Thunderbirds. Two years later he co-founded the blues-rock band Arc Angels with Charlie Sexton, Chris Layton and Tommy Shannon. In the aftermath of two critically acclaimed solo albums "Jellycream" and "Welcome," Bramhall II's unparalleled skills as guitarist won the attention of both Roger Waters who featured the guitarist on his "In The Flesh tour," andEric Clapton who recruited Bramhall and the rest is history. Doyle toured with Clapton, collaborated on songs and left an indelible mark on albums such as "Searching Robert J," "Reptile" and 2013's "Old Sock" which he also co-produced. ??In addition to Clapton, Bramhall has been in demand as composer, guitarist and producer, collaborating with such as artists as Sheryl Crow, Tedeschi/Trucks, Elton John, Gary Clark Jr., Gregg Allman,Dr. John and many others.
Doyle is now completing his much anticipated fourth solo album, launching the next chapter in an extraordinary musical journey.
