Today, we've teamed up with Chicago-born, Nashville-based singer and guitarist JD Simo to premiere his brand new track, "Boom Boom, Out Go The Lights."
"Boom Boom, Out Go The Lights" is the opening track from Simo's upcoming solo debut, Off at 11. You can check it out below.
"I love Little Walter and it was a lot of fun to reimagine a tune that I have a lot of reverence for," Simo told Guitar Player. "That music from the 50’s is like the Bible to me but I’m also a psychedelic kind of guy. I love to mix them. It feels natural."
Simo will also hit the road this spring with the Allman Betts Band. You can check out his full itinerary below.
"I love the road," Simo said. "I’ve been touring my whole life and if you got it in your bones, you’ll do it til they put you in the ground. I’m loving playing the new record and making sure it’s as different as possible each night. It makes it ever evolving and truly of the moment. Can’t wait to hit all the stops and see all the folks out there!"
