Chris Duarte Group

Austin-based guitarist, songwriter, and singer Chris Duarte has often been compared with the late Stevie Ray Vaughan. It's heady stuff for the musician, who plays a rhythmic style of Texas blues-rock that is at times reminiscent of Vaughan's sound, and at other times reminiscent of Johnny Winter. The truth is, Duarte has his own sound that draws on elements of jazz, blues, and rock & roll. Although he is humbled by the comparisons with the late Vaughan, the San Antonio-raised musician began playing out in clubs there when he was 15 years old. After Duarte moved to Austin when he was 16, he began taking his guitar playing much more seriously, and at that time, Vaughan was still around playing in Austin-area clubs. Duarte was one of those lucky few thousand who got to see Vaughan at the Continental Club before the late guitarist got his first break with David Bowie. After a short stint in an Austin jazz band, Duarte joined Bobby Mack & Night Train and began getting heavily into blues at that point. He traveled all over Texas with that band before a big break came his way in 1994, when New York-based Silvertone Records released his critically praised debut album, Texas Sugar/Strat Magik. Tailspin Headwhack followed in 1997 and Love Is Greater Than Me appeared three years later. Romp from 2003 featured a cover version of Bob Dylan's "One More Cup" and was followed by the 2007 album Blue Velocity, 2008's Vantage Point, 2009's 396 and 2010's Infinite Energy. My Soul Alone showed up early in 2013. ~ Richard Skelly, Rovi

Down with broadcast radio who never aired this worthy stuff. Up with Pandora for bringing us what we can't get anywhere else.
Can't believe I've never heard him before .He is freakin awesome . This is why I love Pandora .
russellmcwho r t e r
Awesome player ... awesome human being. Buy his music!!! Go see him live!!! He's very accessible and genuine, as other have noted. What SRV did with the 3 Kings, Henderix, Sumlin, and others ... Chris Duarte has done with SRV, Hendrix, Trower, and others ... that is, blended it all into a style that is now all his own. Again, his live shows will blow you away! GO SEE HIM!!!
One of THEE most under rated, under promoted Blues/Rock guitar players..... . E V E R ! ! ! Rory Gallagher and Roy Buchanan were two others who are not with us any longer. Chris needs to be up there in popularity with Bonamassa, Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, etc. And YES, go see him and take ALL your Blues/Rock guitar friends with you! THEY WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED ! ! !
There's no doubt he has chops. He leans a little on Stevie but its ok Stevie lent on Albert King who lent on BB King who lent on Lonnie Johnson
I hear some Texas axeman in him as well as homage to the blues guitar in general...he owns this style
Saw srv p pac prov right before he died Ive never believed in reincarnatio n buttt!!!!!!! ! ! ! ! ! !
I'm glad Gaddgal had such a good time meeting him. You sold me I will check him out with some other blues buffs. We're huge Stevie Ray fans so I bet this is right up our alley
gaddgal
Chris is not only a great musician. He's one of the sweetest guys you'll ever meet! Go see him live, he would love to meet you. He's very genuine.

Used to go every March to see him play at the Crescent Hotel in Eureka Springs, AR. The guy is a monster player that has to be seen LIVE to really appreciate. He'd play for 2 1/2 hours, break for 30 to meet & greet, then play for another 2+ hours. Don't know who was more worn out at the end of the night: the crowd or him. I'm thinking the crowd...
The boy got funky on this cut get down
This guy is awsome first time hearing his soul tearing guitar he is a top axeman he hot he remind he of the late SRV WOW!!!!!!
BLAZING SHREDDING & TONE

Thanks for introducing me to this great artist!
This man definitely drew me back to the computer to see who is playing this awesome music I'm hearing! Joe Bonamassa radio is playing a lot of very talented musicians that I've never heard of.
