Recorded at Studio At The Palms in Las Vegas, The Village Recorder in Los Angeles, and The Cave in Malibu; Driving Towards The Daylight is a balanced, back-to-basics album that highlights Bonamassa's signature style of roots blues with rock-and-roll guts, while honoring the traditions of the original blues musicians.
'We've taken some really traditional old blues songs - the Howlin' Wolf song 'Who's Been Talkin'?' and the Robert Johnson song 'Stones In My Passway,' and we've tried to imagine how they would do them in a rock context,' said Shirley. 'It's a very exciting return to the blues in a very visceral way. It's vibrant and it's gutsy and it's really, really rugged.'
