The Sean Chambers Band (USA)

UK Tour June 2009

Sean Burns up the fret board like few can, playing with power and intensity that has earned him comparisons to Stevie Ray Vaughan, Johnny Winter and Billy Gibbons among others. Chambers grew up listening to blues guitar legends such as Freddie and Albert King, BB King, Howlin Wolf, Jimi Hendrix and Muddy Waters to name a few. Today those influences come through in Sean's style of play and stage performance both instrumentally and vocally.

In 1998 Chambers was asked to fill in as Hubert Sumlin's guitarist at The "Bluesstock" Festival in Memphis, TN. The two hit it off amazingly well and had a unique and obvious chemistry together. Chambers would find himself acting as Sumlin's guitarist and band leader for the next four years, performing at festivals and clubs in most of the major markets around the U.S. as well as touring overseas with Sumlin. After his time with Hubert, ("His school" as he calls it) guitarist Sean Chambers headed out on his own, releasing two critically acclaimed cd's and garnering recognition as one of the top blues rock guitar players in the country. In 2001, Britain's Guitarist Magazine named Sean as one of the 50 Greatest Blues Guitarists of all time. Pretty heady for someone still in his early thirties! If you like your blues blazin hot, this trio will definitely light your fire!

Chambers continues to develop his powerful style on his October 2005 release Humble Spirits, which showcases his musical evolution beyond the standard blues idiom. Produced by industry veteran Bud Snyder (Allman Brothers / Gov't Mule), the album features several notable musicians including Bernard Allison, Robin Trower, Frankie & Danny Toler (Allman Brothers), Bobby T. Torello (Johnny Winter), along with Greg Allman Band alumnus Bruce Waibel. Sadly, Bruce unexpectedly passed away while still recording the sessions with Sean, and Humble Spirits is dedicated in Bruce's memory.

Here are some other artists Sean has shared the stage with: BB King, Buddy Guy, Greg Allman, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Little Feat, Double Trouble, Otis Rush, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Govt Mule, Charlie Musselwhite, Kim Simmons, Tab Benoit, Jimmy Thackery, Jeff Healey, Derek Trucks, Bernard Allison, (also appears on Seans latest release "Humble Spirits") Ronnie Baker Brooks, North American Allstars, Stone Temple Piolts, Leslie West, Georgia Sattelites, Rick Derringer, Pat Travers, David Allen Coe, Mitch Rider & The Detroit wheels, Little Milton, James Cotton, Pinetop Perkins, Willie Big eyes Smith, Kim Wilson, Hubert Sumlin, Bobby Blue Bland, Chris Duarte, Walter Trout, Big Bill Morganfield, Koko Taylor, Ike Turner, Magic Slim, Bo Diddley, Robert Cray.
