Doyle Bramhall II is a distinctive vocalist, guitarist, and composer in contemporary music. Eric Clapton, with whom Bramhall has worked with for more than a decade, lauds him as one of the most gifted guitarists he has ever encountered.
Early in his career he was recruited by Jimmie Vaughan to play with the Fabulous Thunderbirds. Later, Bramhall and Charlie Sexton formed the Arc Angels with Stevie Ray Vaughn’s fabled Double Trouble rhythm section.
Introducing himself as a solo artist in 1996 with Doyle Bramhall II, he followed with a pair of critically acclaimed albums, “Jellycream” (1999) and “Welcome” (2001).
Bramhall’s fourth solo album, Rich Man, documents a journey that took him to the other side of the world in search of new sounds.
