Planet Full Of Blues - has just announced the much anticipated follow-up to their 2008 chart making self-titled debut album. In fact, the title track off of the Virginia based power trio’s first release was listed on the national Roots Music Report—Roots Blues chart as one of the top 50 blues songs in the nation for over 30 plus weeks throughout 2008—2009. Additionally, the band’s first album received strong international airplay as well, resulting in multiple offers to perform overseas. In June 2009, the band performed as a co-headliner at the Blues Stock Blues Festival in Belgrade, Serbia.
Planet Full Of Blues has raised the bar for their new album, Hard Landing, by enlisting multi-Grammy award winning producer/engineer Jim Gaines. Gaines’ artful influence is felt throughout the 11 original tracks bringing out the best of the band’s unique blend of guitar-driven blues-rock. Simply put, Gaines does an amazing job at capturing and conveying the emotion that was experienced during the Hard Landing sessions. Backed by Brock Howe on drums and Ron Dameron on bass, Johnny Ray Light’s unique rich vocals and searing yet soulful lead guitar playing are nicely complimented by the big breathing percussive sound and strong clean vocals provided by Howe.
