Gerry Joe Weise has established himself as a blues and rock musician of international acclaim since beginning his career in 1977. Based in Australia, Weise has performed throughout the world with such renown and legendary artists as Eric Clapton, B.B. King, Ray Charles, Buddy Guy, John Lee Hooker, Albert Collins, Noel Redding and The Yardbirds, among others. Weise has been the recipient of various international awards and accolades, including being named No. 1 on the Top Electric Blues charts in Australia, No. 1 on the Top 100 Artists of Blues Rock charts in Australia and No. 2 on the Top 100 Artists Jazz Blues charts in Australia. Weise has charted hits in his homeland, as well as in New Zealand, won the Strat Master 2008 title in the United States for his song “Long Gone Train” and won Song of the Month at Songweavers in New York City for the same tune.

Weise’s coming off of concert dates in the Pacific, the Azores Isles, Scandinavia, New Zealand, throughout Europe and his homeland of Australia. And, though occasionally he wakes up not knowing what country he’s in, Weise is on a one-man mission to continue playing the blues. One of the great things about being an independent musician today is the Internet,” Weise said in a phone interview. “It really enables you to manage your career and tour. Record companies used to be in a position where they would schedule concerts and tours once or twice every couple of years. But today, the record companies are limited and don’t have the same kind of power, and you can promote yourself any way you want. You can play everywhere. The goal for me is to play in as many different places as possible.” Weise also credits the Internet with furthering music listeners’ exposure to blues, saying, “You’d never think it, but even youngsters are coming out to hear a blues rock band because they discovered this music through their friends or through YouTube and MySpace. Again, that’s thanks to the Internet. It’s great to see because it’s bridging both age and cultural gaps. These days, to be a good blues musician, you also have to be a good country musician and a good jazz and rock musician. Blues has become a fusion of these different styles. People are discovering this music and are able to be exposed to these crossovers because of the Internet.” Weise’s shows will feature nights of blues standards and originals. “We’ll mix it up,” he said. “It will be a good night.”

Blues rock guitar from down under Australia. Hot Rod Tone & Stratocaster Blues Abuse, GERRY JOE WEISE has injected new energy into the Blues. His larger than life tones and outstanding solos add to a rich mix of blues rock arrangements. Songs that range from slow spacey textures, tears in your beer, to tone to the bone blues, to outrageous rocking tunes, to searing tortured blue bends. Gerry Joe Weise plays both standard and infectious slide guitars. With a style steeped in blues, rock & country, this Sydney born guitarist has lived and toured extensively in Europe for more than 20 years. Since 1994 he has released several remarkable studio & live solo albums, that display a player of great skill and taste, with magnificent guitar tones and soaring melodies. A French magazine claimed Gerry Joe Weise to be a “studio savvy, roots rocking guitarist extraordinaire”, while a German paper announced that “Gerry Joe Weise’s onstage persona sticks closely to the : do what it takes to amaze an audience”.   (John Douglas, BLUES MAGAZINE)

Australian guitarist, Gerry Joe Weise had been living in the South of France for 5 years before going back to Australia. The tracks on this album composed by bluesman Gerry Joe Weise have both fire and power, ignited by his 1963 L-series Stratocaster and 1960 Sears Silvertone. Showcasing “Slidewater Cajun” with his trio live in Paris, featuring cosmic slidework. “Long Train Blues” a soaring elecrifying experience, taken from the concert opening for the legendary Yardbirds. “Who’s Calling? Crocodile River” where Texas meets Australia’s Northern Territory; and tunes even more Australian in style, like “Ned Kelly Outlaw” a solo deep and blue about bushrangers catching a fugitive. “Down In Sydney” a soulful acoustic solo performed live, opening for The Scorpions in front of 7,000 people at the Zenith in France.   (GUITARIST MAGAZINE)

21st Century Blues Rock executed with a twangbanger 1963 Stratocaster and a 1960 Silvertone for bottleneck slide. The abuse and the raw power create a sonic landscape that spotlights the talents of Gerry Joe Weise. Singer and accomplished songwriter, he has written more than 80 tunes, some of which have had radio airplay. To sum things up, for the last 3 decades, Gerry Joe Weise has performed amazing guitar at festivals and concerts around the World.   (John Douglas, BLUES MAGAZINE)

Staying with a big guitar sound is Australia’s Gerry Joe Weise. He has put aside traditional Australian instruments (didgeridoo etc…) that had given his former album great color, to concentrate more on vocals and guitar. Fans who enjoy heroic guitar solos under control, will enjoy the treatment. Many great arrangements, plus an interesting contemporary approach to the acoustic guitar.   (Christophe Mourot, SOUL BAG MAGAZINE)
