Joe Colombo is a blues guitarist recognized as a virtuoso of the slide-guitar. Already alongside American singer Terry Evans (Ry Cooder, Eric Clapton) since 2005, Colombo is now a solid presence on the national music scene and beyond.
Colombo’s slide-technique belongs to the delta-blues but his playing definitely categorized him as high-energy blues act.
He defined his style through several record productions since 2002. All instrumental “Natural Born Slider” (released by the Italian label “Comet/Horizon”) impressed the critics and gave him the opportunity to debut on the double release tribute to Jimi Hendrix, “Voodoo Crossing” and “Gypsy Blood”, along with international artists, such as Robben Ford, Steve Lukather, Larry Coryell and Hiram Bullock. Joe Colombo’s latest album “Live at Taco’s” (2012) is a powerful selection of Joe’s originals and classics from Freddie King, Johnny Winter and Stevie Ray Vaughan. The blues belongs to him.
