Joe Bonamassa Discusses New Album “Royal Tea” And Reflects On His Musical Inspirations

Blues musician Joe Bonamassa stopped by New & Approved to talk with Matt Pinfield about what he’s been up to the past year including his new album and his upcoming show at The Greek Theater in Los Angeles on August 1st.

Bonamassa refuses to ever slow down. When the COVID-19 pandemic put a hold on live music in 2020, Bonamassa put together a one-night show live-streamed from Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN.

The virtual concert was recorded and released as the new album “Joe Bonamassa Now Serving: Royal Tea Live From The Ryman.” Last year, Bonamassa worked with Pete Brown on his studio album “Royal Tea,” which became Bonamassa’s 24th number 1 record.

Bonamassa also chats with Pinfield about their mutual admiration of the ’60s British blues scene and how this influenced his style of playing. He then plays a few of his favorite guitar riffs before diving into the business side of music.
