“Long plays with intensity and fire, as if the riffs come directly from his soul.” Kim Welsh, OffBeat Magazine
Young blues phenom Jonathon “Boogie” Long used the crown he earned as Guitar Center’s “King Of The Blues” as a push to discover himself as the complete artist we meet on his national debut release Trying To Get There. His defining sense of confidence thrusts the album out the gate with the heavy hitting “Head Over Heels,” leading the listener across the varied terrain of Blues, R&B and Country that only an authentic Louisiana slinger could. As the “Boogie” name has filtered its way around blues, Jonathon has found himself on stage with a host of legends including Greg Allman and ZZ Top.
Revealing both his fire and awe inspiring facility, Long delivers a merciless and striking album that nods a head to his roots while driving deliberately into the future. Capturing the high energy and signature confidence of his live show, Trying to Get There is the perfect introduction to the true talent of Jonathon Boogie Long.
