“Just play what you feel, be real about it and enjoy yourself. That’s what Albert Collins taught me,” says award-winning guitar virtuoso and soul-deep singer Coco Montoya. The self-taught, left-handed player mastered his craft under Collins’ tutelage, for whom he originally played drums.

Montoya puts his own stamp onto every song. Since his first solo album in 1995, which won the Blues Music Award for Best New Artist, Montoya’s endlessly inventive guitar work and passionate, hard-hitting vocals have kept him at the top of the blues scene.

Montoya’s new Alligator Records release Writing On The Wall (2023) is his sixth for the label and is already considered one of his best.

The son of Chicago blues legend Lonnie Brooks, Ronnie Baker Brooks is blues royalty and has performed with some of the greatest artists of our time, including: BB King, Buddy Guy, Albert Collins, and Koko Taylor, as well as the legendary Eric Clapton. Ronnie was headliner at the Chicago Blues Festival and plays major festivals around the world.
