Mais avant de connaitre le succès en rejoignant ce “super groupe”, ce Texan pur jus avait déjà sorti quelques albums solos qui fleuraient bon le blues rock du sud des Etats-Unis.

“Tell The Truth”, son nouvel effort en solitaire, s’inscrit dans cette lignée mais avec l’expérience acquise au fil des années en plus. Lance Lopez n’a jamais nié sa passion pour ses premières influences telles que Bobby “Blue” Bland, Buddy Miles, Johnny Taylor ou encore Lucky Peterson, avec qui il a joué lorsqu’il n’avait que 18 ans…

Que de chemin parcouru depuis cette époque… Lance Lopez a toujours voulu vivre sa vie de musicien à fond, et chaque composition de ce nouvel album reflète les innombrables kilomètres qu’il a parcourus sur la route avec sa guitare à la main…
Ce premier extrait en est un bel exemple:

“Behind the Music –

There’s no doubt about it, the state of Texas is well known world wide for its fiery blues guitar players.
By 1983 Stevie Ray Vaughan, whose combination of raw blues mixed with Hendrix styled pyrotechnics, spearheaded yet another resurrection as the genre rose its evil head once again.

One such player whom Vaughan touched the soul of was young, gifted blues/rock axeslinger Lance Lopez. Although born in Shreveport, Louisiana, 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 called his home ever since.

A professional musician since the age of 14 playing at bars, at 17 he was hired by soul great Johnnie Taylor, with whom he toured for six months. By 18 he was hired as the band leader of blues legend Lucky Peterson’s band, spending three years touring throughout the world.

It was while with Peterson in Europe that he struck up a close friendship with the larger than life drummer Buddy Miles, subsequently becoming the guitarist for The Buddy Miles Express for a brief time. The former Band Of Gypsys legend would go on to mentor Lopez, leading to him co producing his debut album ‘First Things First’.

From 2003 to 2007 Lopez recorded, and released three studio and one live CD for a small independent label, Grooveyard Records.

After a three year break, Lopez returned with a Jim Gaines produced studio album ‘Salvation From Sundown’. Intentionally conceived as a more traditional Texas blues styled offering, it’s the guitarist’s most mature recording to date, showcasing strong songwriting while still retaining the red-hot fretwork which has elicited none other than guitar god Jeff Beck to call him “A very exciting and intense blues guitarist”.

​Texas has its guitar heroes, not least of which is Johnny Winter, Billy Gibbons, and the legendary Stevie Ray Vaughan. And here’s another to add to the list: Lance Lopez
