About Albert Cummings
Albert Cummings is an American blues guitarist, singer/songwriter, and an award-winning master builder. His playing style weds the chunky, rave-up R&B stylings of Albert King and Stevie Ray Vaughan to the boundary-less blues-rock improvisation of Jimi Hendrix and Freddie King's resonant phrasing. Further, he is a powerful vocalist possessed of a rich, expressive baritone. After hearing him play live, Tommy Shannon and Chris Layton (Vaughan's Double Trouble) produced and played on 2001's From the Heart. 2004's True to Yourself marked the guitarist's Blind Pig debut. 2006's Working Man peaked inside the Top Ten on the blues charts and established Cummings as a touring headliner. 2012's No Regrets peaked at five. In 2015 he issued the number two smash, Someone Like You. Cummings left Blind Pig in 2018 and signed with Germany's Provogue for 2020's soul-blues revue styled Believe, which peaked at number two.
