It's been said that you don't seek out the blues - it seeks out you. For guitar virtuoso Albert Cummings, no words could ring more true. Cummings' masterful guitar wizardry has drawn comparisons to iconic axe legends Albert King, Freddie King, Jimi Hendrix, and even his own musical inspiration, Stevie Ray Vaughan. He has graced the stage with such esteemed luminaries as Buddy Guy, Johnny Winter, Susan Tedeschi, Sheryl Crow, and B. B. King, who called Cummings "a great guitarist". He also has worked with renowned industry producers Jim Gaines and David Z.
Raised in Massachusetts and trained as a master builder, Cummings learned basic guitar chords from his father but then became intrigued with banjo and bluegrass when he was twelve. As a teenager, however, he discovered Stevie Ray Vaughan's early material and was astonished by Vaughan's mastery. It was then that Cummings picked up the guitar again and never looked back. It wasn't until he was twenty-seven that Cummings publicly played with a band for the first time - and that was all it took for him to hit the ground running with his band, Swamp Yankee. In 2003 Cummings released his first solo record, 'From the Heart', which later earned him a record deal with Blind Pig Records, and went on to secure a Blues Music Award nomination in 2017 for Best Rock Blues Album for his self-released 'Live At The '62 Center'.
