#1 Blues artist Anthony Gomes joins Twisted South Radio this week with his power trio on supporting their latest album "Up 2 Zero".

Anthony Gomes’ latest , “Up 2 Zero”, represents a full-circle
return to his love of high energy, guitar-driven blues rock. "This
album is the most honest representation of who I am. The title
represents getting back to the blues - back to ground zero,” says
Gomes. “Musically, most people try to look ahead for inspiration or
seek out what’s cutting edge. I seem to go in the other direction and
look backwards to be inspired. In a strange way, when I listen to
Muddy Waters or Robert Johnson I hear the future.”

Up 2 Zero opens with the searing mission statement of “Back To The
Start”, a song co-written with Tom Hambridge (Buddy Guy, Susan
Tedeschi, Johnny Winter). The album, mixed by five-time Grammy winner
Richard Dodd (The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty), includes the burning
slow blues of “One Last Time”, the radio ready “Love Sweet Love”, and
classic rock-blues groover “Fly Away”. On these songs Anthony
collaborated with longtime writing partner Jim Peterik (“Eye Of The
Tiger“, “Vehicle“, “Hold On Loosely“, “Blues In Technicolor“). Gomes’ endless touring kept him atop the
blues field as he continued to be nominated for Blues Wax “Artist Of The
Year” awards for several years in a row. 2008’s “LIVE” is Gomes’
greatest commercial success to date, reaching number one on the
Billboard Top Blues Albums chart.
