For more than a decade, blues-rocker 8 Ball Aitken has toured the world – performing his swampy, slide guitar-driven songs at more than 200 gigs each year. His live shows have rocked music festivals across the US, Australia, Europe, Canada, and Asia.
Since relocating to Nashville in 2012 from his native Australia, he has honed his songwriting, guitar playing and showmanship with some of the best in the business today. During lockdown 8 Ball produced three new albums with Buddy Guys Grammy winning producer Tom Hambridge behind the drum kit. The albums are being released one at a time throughout 2021. The newest ‘Ice Cream Man’ drops this February.
His most recent release, Swamp Blues 2, 8 Ball delves deeper into the Delta. It’s a groove-heavy, funkier follow-up to the success of last year’s Swamp Blues album release that hit #2 in the Australian Blues Charts and produced the 2019 APRA Song of the Year Shortlisted “High Water.” The album reached #2 in the Australian Blues Charts in March, 2020.
