Recently, we told you about a rising young Massachusetts guitarist named Seth Rosenbloom. Tyler Morris is another, even younger guy from the same neck of the woods, but with a bit heavier of a style, as you can hear on his just-released third album Next in Line (VizzTone Records). At just 19 years old, Morris’ music has already been featured or reviewed in the pages of Guitar Player and Vintage Guitar magazines, and this slow-dragging, hard-rocking track (with strong vocals from Morten Fredheim) from Next in Line shows just why!
Among the other highlights from the album — which was produced by longtime Johnny Winter guitarist/band leader/producer Paul Nelson — are a terrific cover of Bill Carter’s “Willie the Wimp” (Stevie Ray Vaughan) that features blues singer and guitarist Joe Louis Walker on vocals and the catchy instrumental “Choppin'” on which the band is joined by the Uptown Horns (and Morris’ guitar sounds a lot like Walker’s). Check this guy out today!
