Joe Bonamassa has released a music video for his brand new single “Notches.” The track is featured on Bonamassa’s upcoming album to be released later this year.
Pulling no punches the rocking track was co-written with Charlie Starr of Blackberry Smoke, produced by Kevin Shirley, and mixed by Bob Clearmountain (Bruce Springsteen, The Rolling Stones).
Bonamassa sings about his uphill battle over the years in the music business belting, “I got miles under my wheels. Notches in my walkin’ cane.”
“Twenty years ago, I recorded a record of covers that eventually was called ‘Blues Deluxe.’ It was recorded at Bobby Nathan’s studio in Manhattan,” says Bonamassa. “It captured an energy and purpose that always stuck with me as an artist…The music business is tough, very tough. Especially back in those days when major labels pulled all the strings and, in my case, all the punches.”
The cinematic music video was directed by Paul van Kan.
