The blues aren’t often associated with the North, but Massachusetts native Albert Cummings is breaking the mold.

As a child, he learned the requisite three chords on the guitar from his father, but then switched to playing banjo at age 12 and became a fan of bluegrass music. When he heard the early recordings of Stevie Ray Vaughan (and later while in college saw Vaughn in concert), Cummings returned to the guitar with a new outlook and resolve.

It was not until he was 27 -- an age when other musicians were either already established or had long ago put their dreams aside for the realities of life -- that Albert finally decided to go for it, soon sharing a bill with Double Trouble, the late Stevie Ray Vaughan's rhythm section. So taken with Cumming’s fire and passion were bassist Tommy Shannon and drummer Chris Layton that they volunteered to play on and produce his debut recording, From the Heart. His latest album (untitled at press time) was produced by Grammy-winner David Z (Buddy Guy, Prince, Jonny Lang, Gov't Mule) and will be released this summer.
