Striking a masterful balance between old soul & modern flair, Will Johns is one of the most distinctive and exciting contemporary Blues performers in the world today. Born in 1973, Will Johns is a man with the music in his blood, but it’s hardly surprising given his pedigree. His parents are actress/model Paula Boyd, sister of Pattie, and record producer Andy Johns, and his uncles include Eric Clapton, Mick Fleetwood, George Harrison and Glyn Johns.

A hugely respected songwriter & performer, Will has released four solo albums and was nominated for ‘Best Original Blues Song’ by the British Blues Awards for three consecutive years.

Will has also toured the globe from Czech Republic Belgium to the USA and even Russia.
A testament to his authenticity & skill, Johns has performed alongside the likes of Eric Clapton, NileRodgers, Ronnie Wood, Jack Bruce and Robben Ford to name just a few.

The TBone Hamilton Band was established in 2009.

TBone has been leading this band for several years, laying the foundation for his larger ensemble, TBone Hamilton’s Big Easy Revue.

During this period, TBone experienced the loss of some of his beloved blues friends, prompting him to create TBone Hamilton and the Blues All Stars.

This allowed him to perform alongside the best blues musicians, culminating in the recording of ‘A Tribute to Willie Dixon’ with harmonica maestro TC Carr and the boogie woogie piano virtuoso, Mitch Woods.

The album features TBone in the forefront, lending his soulful vocals and skillful upright bass.

Currently, TBone is focusing on the new iteration of the TBone Hamilton Band, offering a diverse range of musical styles including jazz, blues, rhythm and blues, funk, rock, NOLA grooves, and original compositions.

Exciting new endeavors are on the horizon, so stay tuned!
