Lance Lopez Signs to Provogue / Mascot Label Group << ALL NEWS 

"Texas has been know throughout the years to be the breeding ground for some of the baddest guitar players of all time...Lance is yet another one to carry on that Texas tradition..." - BILLY F. GIBBONS - ZZ TOP

"A very exciting and intense Blues Guitarist..." - JEFF BECK

"Lance Lopez got 3 standing ovations when he opened a show for me and I was among those standing..."
- B.B. KING

Mascot Label Group is thrilled to announce that Lance Lopez has joined its Provogue label, which includes some of the world’s finest modern blues icons like Joe Bonamassa, Beth Hart, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Jonny Lang, Walter Trout, Eric Gales, Sonny Landreth, Gary Hoey and more.

The state of Texas is known for its fiery blues guitar players, and Lance Lopez’ furious fretboard mastery perfectly encapsulates that sound. The young, gifted, Stevie Ray Vaughan-inspired blues/rock axeslinger was born was born in Shreveport, Louisiana, but at the age of 12 his family moved to Dallas, where - with the exception of a spell back in New Orleans and Southwest Florida - the guitarist has lived ever since.

A professional musician from the age of 14, at 17 he was hired by the late soul musician Johnnie Taylor, with whom he toured. At 18 he was hired to be the band leader of blues legend Lucky Peterson's group, before ultimately joining The Buddy Miles Express. He has released 6 studio albums - First Things First (1998), Wall of Soul (2004). Simplify Your Vision (2006), Higher Ground (2007), Salvation From Sundown (2010) and Handmade Music (2011) - and has been praised by some of the world’s finest players, including B.B. King, Jeff Beck and ZZ Top’s Billy F Gibbons.

In 2015 he joined forces with bassist Fabrizio Grossi and drummer Kenny Aronoff to form Supersonic Blues Machine. The band has released two acclaimed albums to-date - West of Flushing, South of Frisco (2016) and Californisoul (2017) – featuring collaborations with Billy F Bibbons, Steve Lukather, Eric Gales, Warren Haynes, Walter Trout, Robben Ford and Chris Duarte. The band has performed to thousands of people around the world, including performances in Holland, India, Russia, Norway and the UK.

“We are looking forward to recording the best music of my career with Mascot/Provogue!” Lopez said. “Most of my favourite guitarists, artists and friends are on Mascot and it is truly an honour to be amongst them...We believe Mascot understands Blues Rock better than anyone else and most of all understands and believes in guitarists.”
