VizzTone is tremendously proud to present a new album by one of the most widely acclaimed musicians of our time. He is a supremely talented and celebrated guitarist/singer/songwriter and a certified master of the slide guitar. ...Please join us in welcoming RICK VITO to the family! “A singer and guitarist of the first rank” –JOHN MAYALL “Rick Vito’s guitar playing slays me!” – BONNIE RAITT “The finest solo I have ever heard” – BOB SEGER “Soulful singer, brilliant guitarist!” –KEB’ MO’ Multiple Grammy nominee RICK VITO is a modern master at the height of his powers. SOULSHAKER highlights his incisive songwriting, soulful singing, and the slide guitar playing that Bonnie Raitt describes as “sharp as a Cadillac tail fin.” RICK VITO has lent his unique slide and lead guitar work to the recordings and performances of an amazing list of artists including Bonnie Raitt, John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers, John Fogerty, Bob Seger, Roger McGuinn, Boz Scaggs, Dolly Parton, John Prine, Delbert McClinton, Roy Orbison, and scores of others. He was a touring and recording member of Fleetwood Mac from 1987-1991, and frontman for the Mick Fleetwood Blues Band. He has appeared on hundreds of recordings, and his haunting slide guitar solo on Seger’s “Like A Rock” drove the Chevrolet truck TV commercial campaign for a decade. Blues critic Jim Hynes writes “this writer can confidently put Vito right there with Derek Trucks, Duane Allman and Luther Dickinson in masterful slide technique.” SOULSHAKER is an original mix of Blues, Rock & Roll, Gospel and R&B, played and sung with the honesty and integrity that is Vito’s trademark. SOULSHAKER shows RICK VITO to be a truly world-class guitarist/singer/songwriter with a rockin' edge, deeply rooted in the blues.
