Joe Bonamassa, “Lonesome Christmas” (2014): One Track Mind

Share this:

Tired of the same ol’ Christmas songs played the same way? Blues guitarist extraordinaire Joe Bonamassa’s got a Yuletide treat for you.

“Lonesome Christmas” is a brand new Bonamassa original with a Holiday theme. You’ve got your classic blues shuffle, a generous helping of a sunburst Les Paul, ol’ Joe singing Christmas cheer and a heaping helping a horns to spike this blues egg nog with a shot of RnB.

The recording of the tune in the studio was captured in the video above, and from the looks of it, a fun time was had by all in creating this Kevin Shirley-produced track.

Download “Lonesome Christmas” and Joe Bonamassa will kick in more money to fund music education through his Keeping the Blues Alive foundation. That way you can feel good and make others feel good in the process. And ain’t that what Christmas is about?
