The son of the late Texas music legend Doyle Bramhall, he was raised in a home filled with the blues and rock ’n’ roll styles indigenous to Texas. The younger Bramhall proved to be a rare and distinctive guitarist who plays left-handed, but with his instrument strung for a right-hander and flipped backwards. When he was 18, Bramhall was recruited to play with the Fabulous Thunderbirds then later formed the Arc Angels. Introducing himself as a solo artist in 1996 with Doyle Bramhall II, he followed with a pair of critically acclaimed albums, Jellycream (1999) and Welcome (2001). It was then that Bramhall’s unparalleled guitar mastery won the attention not only of Eric Clapton but also Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters.
