Guitar Shorty's BARE KNUCKLE, produced by famed songwriter and bassist Wyzard (a member of Mother's Finest who has toured with Stevie Nicks and others), burns with heavy blues-rock fire from start to finish, putting Shorty's infectious energy and guitar pyrotechnics on full display. The track "Please Mr. President" (Bare Knuckle), written by Shorty, Wyzard and Bruce Iglauer, received a 2011 Blues Music Award nomination for Song of the Year. GuitarOne declares, "Be prepared for a mighty surprise if you have never heard Guitar Shorty rip...lethal licks and heavyweight blues-rock grooves."
