Known for his collaborations with Eric Clapton and Roger Waters, Doyle Bramhall II, aka DB2, is a distinctive left-handed guitarist, who plays his instrument strung upside down, and bends strings downwards.
Influenced by his late father, the legendary drummer Doyle Bramhall, DB2 had lifelong collaborations with Stevie Ray and Jimmie Vaughan. At the age of 18, he played with the Fabulous Thunderbirds with the Vaughens, then later formed the Arc Angels with Stevie Ray’s drummer Chris Layton, bassist Tommy Shannon along with Charlie Sexton. In his Flesh tour with Waters, he replaced Pink Floyd's lead singer and guitarist in the Pink Floyd songs. That’s flair.
DB2 is finally matching his impressive guitar skills with his songwriting knack, by putting his life stories in a complete package in 2016. Rich Man is DB2’s first release since 2001, playing multiple roles as singer, guitar player, songwriter and producer of his fourth studio album.
