Description

Driving Towards the Daylight is the eleventh studio album by blues rock guitarist Joe Bonamassa. It was released on May 22, 2012. Recorded at The Village Recorder in Los Angeles, CA and Studio at the Palms in Las Vegas, NV, Driving Towards the Daylight is a balanced and “back-to-basics album that highlights Bonamassa’s sig­nature style of blues, roots, and rock & roll”. Driving Towards the Daylight was produced by Kevin “Caveman” Shirley (Black Crowes, Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin), making this Bonamassa and Shirley’s seventh album collaboration in six years.

Recorded at Studio At The Palms in Las Vegas, NV, The Village Recorder in Los Angeles, CA and The Cave in Malibu, CA, Driving Towards The Daylight is a balanced back-to-basics album that highlights Bonamassa's sig­nature style of roots blues with rock-and-roll guts, while honouring the traditions of the original blues musicians. “We've taken some really traditional old blues songs – the Howlin Wolf song Who's Been Talkin? and the Robert Johnson song Stones In My Passway, and we've tried to imagine how they would do them in a rock context”, said Shirley. “It's a very exciting return to the blues in a very visceral way. It's vibrant and it's gutsy and it's really, really rugged.”

To challenge Joe and move him out of his comfort zone, a unique group of musicians was gathered including Aerosmith guitarist Brad Whitford (guitar), Blondie Chaplan (guitar), Anton Fig (drums and percussion), Arlan Schierbaum (keyboard), Michael Rhodes (bass), Carmine Rojas (bass), Jeff Bova and The Bovaland Brass, Pat Thrall (guitar), and Brad's son Harrison Whitford (guitar).

The album features five Bonamassa-penned originals including the bruising opener Dislocated Boy, the road warrior title track (and first single) Driving Towards The Daylight, I Got All You Need, Heavenly Soul, and Somewhere Trouble Don't Go. Other tracks include Bonamassa's ver­sions of Tom Waits' New Coat Of Paint, Lonely Town Lonely Street, by Bill Withers (Lean On Me, Ain't No Sunshine) and A Place In My Heart by Bernie Marsden of White Snake (Here I Go Again). On the album closer, Australian rock singer Jimmy Barnes sings lead vocals on his 1987 hit “Too Much Ain't Enough Love.”
