Info for Peace, Love & Loud Guitars
“The blues, for me, made sense of everything,” said Anthony Gomes after a recent high-energy show at The Stanhope House. “I love Jimi Hendrix and I love a lot of rock ‘n’ roll music, but when I heard B.B. King, it all came together for me. It was sort of like I was on the outside looking in, and when I heard the blues I was on the inside for the first time. I understood what was out there and it was a great feeling.
Hendrix on crank guitar phrasing... all the soul of Otis Redding and the swagger of Steven Tyler. Anthony joyfully blends the distinction between blues and rock. (BLUES ROCK REVIEW)
“A very talented guitarist... and where did that voice come from?” (B.B. KING)
“His new album, Peace Love & Loud Guitars, continues that message with big tones and is a call to bring people together… equal parts down home blues and hard rock, it’s the finest album of his career.” (Vintage Guitar)
“Peace, Love & Loud Guitars is without a doubt the best album of Gomes’ career. This is a statement album for an artist keeping real, genuine blues and rock music alive. The best album of 2018.” (Blues Rock Review)

#1 Billboard Blues Artist, is a triple threat force as a guitarist, vocalist and songwriter. This, along with his high-energy shows and dynamic stage presence, make him one of the top draws on the Rock/Blues circuit today.
Gomes’ new record Peace, Love & Loud Guitars, named Best Blues Album of 2018 by Blues Rock Review and SoundGuardian Magazine, is the culmination of a life spent honoring Blues traditions while never losing sight of his own identity.
The Toronto born guitar slinger stands his ground as a creative artist and is eager to push the Blues back into the mainstream.
“My goal is to keep the Blues fresh, exciting and even dangerous,” says Gomes. “I want to bring back the thrill longtime Bluesmen created in their day. At the same time, I think it’s very important for the music to grow and evolve.”
He has performed with the likes of B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Robert Plant, Heart, Sammy Hagar, Joe Bonamassa, .38 Special, Jonny Lang, Robert Cray and Kenny Wayne Shepherd.
Gomes recalled a conversation he had years ago with one of those legends. “B.B. King told me the Blues are like the laws of the land. They need to be amended to the times we live in,” Gomes said. “As an artist, it’s very exciting to think that the Blues can be just as ground-breaking today as it ever was.”
Believing that music can inspire the human spirit, Anthony founded the Music Is the Medicine Foundation in 2010. This non-profit organization is dedicated to changing the lives of others through the healing power of music.
Anthony Gomes has nothing left to prove while leaving all his passion on the table. Nonetheless, he continues striving to not only find the legendary “lost chord,” but the ultimate combinations of words, notes and performance. Looking for an actual 21st Century guitar hero? Here he is.
