Toronzo Cannon "The Chicago Way" to be released Friday February 26th on Alligator Records
Alligator Records

Chicago born and bred blues guitarist/singer/songwriter Toronzo Cannon is keeping the city’s blues flame blazing with THE CHICAGO WAY. With searing guitar licks, fresh lyrics delivered with soul-tinged vocals and a Windy City pedigree, Cannon is set to become the next major Chicago bluesman.
The Chicago Sun-Times calls him “one of Chicago’s new greats” and the Chicago Tribune describes his music as “deep, contemporary Chicago blues...razor-sharp guitar and compelling, forceful singing.” An electrifying live performer, Toronzo headlined the 2015 Chicago Blues Festival and has performed at high-profile European festivals despite holding down a day job as a Chicago Transit Authority bus driver.

Produced by Alligator President Bruce Iglauer and Cannon, THE CHICAGO WAY is an exhilarating showcase for Toronzo’s vision for contemporary blues. Playing all self-penned material, Toronzo’s lyrics sting just as hard as his fretwork, and his singing resonates with a gruff soulfulness. From frisky shuffles and hard blues to buttery ballads and funky R&B, Toronzo Cannon blends all the flavors of Chicago blues and makes them his own.

Pre-order THE CHICAGO WAY by Toronzo Cannon for the sale price of $14.98 (includes FREE U.S. shipping).

The first 200 will receive an autographed copy!
