On the heels of his recently announced 13th studio album entitled High Voltage Bluesacclaimed blues-rock guitarist Anthony Gomes is releasing another song from his upcoming compilation album. The music video for the album opener “Painted Horse” features bass legend Billy Sheehan and Korn drummer Ray Luzier. The video is a live performance of Gomes, Sheehan and Luzier of the re-recorded version of “Painted Horse.” Gomes recorded his parts at the legendary Shock City Studios while Luzier and Sheehan were together in Ray’s home studio. The music video for “Painted Horse” can be seen here:

Known for his unforgettable live shows and catchy guitar riffs, Gomes will release his 13th album entitled High Voltage Blues on September 23rd. From the infectious opening riff of “Painted Horse” to the melodic outro of “Blues Child,” Anthony Gomes showcases the songwriting and guitar skills that have developed him a loyal following. New tracks like “Fur Covered Handcuffs” and “I Believe” complement the staples from Gomes like “Red Handed Blues” and “Blues In The First Degree.” Sheehan and Luzier also make guest appearances on “Born To Ride” and the bonus track “Rebel Highway.” Renowned vocalist Bekka Bramlett and The Voice™ contestant Wendy Moten also show up on the new version of “Darkest Before The Dawn.” Produced by Peter Carson and mixed by Chris Collier, High Voltage Blues is being released via Rat Pak Records and is now available for pre-order here:

“We had a lot of fun rocking these songs up,” explains Anthony Gomes. “As an artist, it was great to circle back to some of my past work and look at it from a different perspective. Billy and Ray really pushed the way I play guitar and they added a whole new element, with a little insanity. I like to think of my style as what it would be like if B.B. King was in AC/DC, that’s what I feel we try and capture. That’s High Voltage Blues in a nutshell.”

With a guitar slung over his shoulder and the amps turned up full tilt, Anthony Gomes electrifies blues and rock at a 21st century crossroads of his own. Born and raised in Toronto, Ontario, he fell in love with music as a kid, listening to everyone from Muddy Waters and Jimi Hendrix to Jeff Beck and Eddie Van Halen. At 14 years old, Anthony gravitated to the guitar and his relationship with the instrument was born. After grinding it out, his chops caught the attention of B.B. King’s bus driver at a jam night. Blown away, the driver introduced him to B.B. who invited him to open a string of tour dates in 2005. Gaining invaluable knowledge from “The King, he went on to share the stage with the likes of Buddy Guy, Robert Plant, Joe Bonamassa, Heart, Sammy Hagar, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, and more. 2018’s Peace, Love & Loud Guitars vaulted to #1 on the iTunes Top Blues Albums Chart and #1 on Amazon Music’s New Release Blues Chart. Meanwhile, Guitar World readers voted him one of “The 30 Best Blues Guitarists in the World Today” in 2019, and the publication noted, “Gomes is another power player who is at his best when his gear is in the scorched earth between blues and rock. After seven consecutive Top 10 debuts on the Billboard Blues Albums Chart, Containment Blues marked his second #1 on the respective chart in 2020. In 2022, he makes his Rat Pak Records debut with High Voltage Blues, amplifying his soul and spirit like never before.

  1. Don’t often agree with many reviews but agree with this one 100%! I’ve seen Anthony and his various bands many times but my favorite place is a little Jewel in Redkey Indiana called the Key Palace Theater. An old movie theater with a raised stage so every seat in the house is a great one. and man can he fill up that theater with music that once it enters your ears it that pierces your body and ignites your soul.

  2. Anthony Homes. I’m addicted to his music, live shows especially. Anthony is unique and high voltage. From his first show I saw him LIVE, I now have traveled across America just to see him and his band perform. I have every CD except his newest but will soon be ordering. If you haven’t seen him LIVE? Well get on it!!! Peace love and loud guitars.

  3. Most unique rock in blues man ever. Addicted first time I saw him LIVE. Since that night I have traveled America to see him perform LIVE. I have every CD except this new one but will be ordering soon. If you haven’t seen his high voltage LIVE shows but get on it! Rock on
