Sonny Landreth

After a dozen acclaimed albums, virtuoso slide guitarist and bandleader Sonny Landreth found himself at an artistic crossroads. He wanted to finally create the full length acoustic collection his fans had long requested. But he was also itching to capture the sound of his stalwart electric trio augmented by a couple of his favorite collaborators. And the time was certainly right for an elastic, career spanning double live album.

So Landreth and his longtime friends decided to do it all. 'Recorded Live in Lafayette' is a 16 song opus that covers more musical ground than any single album ever could, as the singer and songwriter's work stretches and twists across 93 minutes of full band acoustic and electric bottleneck lightning.

Landreth has collaborated with the very top names in guitar over the years: Eric Clapton, Mark Knopfler, Eric Johnson, Derek Trucks, the list goes on. The noted slideman cut his musical teeth in The Red Hot Louisiana Band of zydeco king Clifton Chenier, and Landreth has since recorded and toured with artists ranging from John Mayall to John Hiatt.

'Recorded Live in Lafayette' adds another major chapter to his tale, as new vocal and instrumental colors emerge.
