Easy To By, Hard To Sell is the debut studio album by American blues musician Joe Bonamassa’s side project The Sleep Eazys, released in April 2020 via Provogue Records and J&R Adventures.

Joe Bonamassa has debuted his new side project, The Sleep Eazys, with a full-length instrumental album Easy To Buy, Hard To Sell. As producer, the blues-rock musician enlisted some of his frequent collaborators, along with his all-star touring band, to play on the album.

The album takes a slight departure from Bonamassa’s traditional repertoire, with the intent of honoring the late American blues and “redneck jazz” guitarists Danny Gatton, one of his most influential mentors, as well as covering instrumental versions of some of his favorites from Frank Sinatra, Danny Gatton, Tony Joe White, King Curtis and more.

Bonamassa shares his excitement on the project, “To be honest I have always wanted to do a record like this. But, to be even more honest I’m not sure I was ready both professionally and musically, until now. The time finally felt right to finally pay tribute to a mentor, a friend and one of the greatest guitarists of all time: the late great Danny Gatton. My time hanging out and jamming with Danny as a child shaped my playing and musical pathway more than just about anyone”.

Largely comprised of Joe’s touring band, The Sleep Eazys includes Late Night with David Letterman’s Anton Fig (percussion), Musician’s Hall of Famer Michael Rhodes (bass), Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Reese Wynans (keyboards), Supertramp member Lee Thornburg (trumpet), Paulie Cerra (saxophone), along with Jade MacRae and Juanita Tippins on background vocals, and Joe Bonamassa on guitar. Accompanying the stellar and tight-knit cast are Jimmy Hall on harmonica and esteemed multi-instrumentalist (and former Elton John Band member) John Jorgenson.

Fans of Bonamassa will enjoy the larger-than-life sound of the star-studded collective that is The Sleep Eazys, providing an array of sounds in everything from jazz to bluegrass, funk, rockabilly and more!

With the caliber and expertise of musicians on this album, it is sure to catch fire and grab the attention of music lovers and critics worldwide.

This album is a limited edition on 180 gram red coloured vinyl with a printed inner sleeve and download code, pressed in the US via J&R Adventures.
