Michael Burks / Bio

Guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Michael Burks stands tall as a major contemporary blues figure. Nobody in today’s blues world successfully bridges searing electric guitar blues with unbridled rock and roll energy like Burks. The Chicago Sun-Times recently said Burks is “poised on the brink of major stardom.” With inspiration from Albert King, Freddie King and Albert Collins, Burks’ sound and style are all his own. Blues Revue says, “Burks delivers blazing, explosive solos and outrageous tone…part rock, part soul and filled with plenty of blues sensibility.” According to GuitarOne, “Burks is a legend in waiting.”
