Albert Cummings
Cummings soulful and explosive approach to blues and rock caught the attention of Blind Pig Records, which signed him to a multi-album deal.


Someone Like You, the latest album from master guitarist, master builder, and fan favorite Albert Cummings, marks his return to noted roots label Blind Pig Records.

The Massachusetts native learned the requisite three chords on the guitar from his father, but then switched to playing banjo at age 12 and became a fan of bluegrass music. In his late teens he encountered the early recordings of Stevie Ray Vaughan and was floored by the virtuosity. While in college in 1987 he saw Vaughan perform and he returned to the guitar with a new outlook and resolve.

The whiz-kid carpenter began his ascent to masterful blues rock guitarist at age 27, with his first public performance on guitar. Soon he was on the Northeast blues circuit with his band, Swamp Yankee. In 1998 he walked into a Northeast Blues Society open jam, which led to Cummings winning the right to compete in the Blues Foundations 1999 International Blues Challenge. The following year Albert released his debut recording, The Long Way. Bluesprint magazine said it was a barrage of guitar pyrotechnics that calls to mind a grand mix of the styles of past masters like Albert King, Freddie King, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jimmie Hendrix.

That in turn opened up an opportunity for him to work with Double Trouble, the late Stevie Ray Vaughans rhythm section. So taken with Alberts fire and passion were bassist Tommy Shannon and drummer Chris Layton that they volunteered to play on and produce his solo debut recording, 2003s self-released From the Heart. Recorded in Austin, Texas, it featured Cummings fronting Double Trouble (including Reese Winans) in their first recording project since Stevie Rays passing. No less a giant of the blues than B.B. King dubbed Cummings a great guitarist.
