Early on, the allure of being a World Class Bluesman was irresistible for one David William Kearney, better know in the Blues World as “Guitar Shorty.” With a Blues apprenticeship with Ray Charles, Willie Dixon, Sam Cooke, T-Bone Walker and Guitar Slim, he has become one of the most recognizable names in the Blues Business. Credited with influencing both Jimi Hendrix and Buddy Guy, Guitar Shorty has been electrifying audiences for over five decades with his supercharged live shows and his incendiary recordings. His Blues journey has been filtered through his own insightful Blues lens, and he has delivered his audiences an exciting, sparkling and Bare Knuckled career that few have equaled. Known as one of blues music's most innovative talents and exciting live performers, Guitar Shorty lays down a balance of blues, rock, and soul music that flows out of your speakers like honey from the hive.
