      with Bullhorn Messiah
      World renowned, rock guitarist, Gary Hoey takes on the Blues with his new album, Deja Blues, available now on Wazoo Music Group. This is an album of original blues songs Ive wanted to record for a long time. The Blues has always been near and dear to my heart. I have so much respect for it. When Im recording a blues song, its a 5 minute journey and you cant take a breath, you cant keep punching in the recording button to fix stuff or it loses the vibe.At sixteen, Hoey often lingered outside Bostons renowned Berklee College of Music making friends and offering to pay for lessons. To devote more of his time to music, the prodigy would cut high school classes so that he could hone his guitar playing skills all the while playing Bostons local clubs and teaching guitar to avoid a day job and keep the guitar in his hands.Hoeys first break came in 1987 when Ozzy Osbourne showed up in Boston looking for a guitarist. Osborne liked Hoeys tape enough to fly him to LA for an audition. The gig went to Zakk Wylde but Ozzy suggested Hoey move to LA seeing his talent. He took Ozzys advice and with $17,000 he saved from teaching Hoey loaded the U-Haul and drove across country to LA. In 1992 Hoey released Heavy Bones on Waner Bros. a rock vocal album with Frankie Banali on drums from Quiet Riot. Heavy Bones got caught in the grunge backlash and the album went unnoticed with a million dollar debt after album cost, promotion and video the band got dropped. 1993 Hoey asked Warner Bros. if he could record a low budget album for fun of instrumental rock. He recorded the successful Animal Instinct album ($15,000 budget) which included acover of the Focus hit, Hocus Pocus. Not only did the hit rocket into the Billboard Top 5, outpacing all other singles as the most frequently played rock song of the year, but the album went on to reach classic rock notoriety. With a collection of 19 albums its no wonder Gary Hoey is listed as one of the top 100 guitarists of all time.1994 Hoey scored the successful Endless Summer II soundtrack and had another radio hit with Wars Low Rider. Other film clients have included Walt Disney films, ESPN, New Line Cinema, scoring the music to California Screaming (Disney Roller Coaster), as well as songs placed in movies such as Office Space, Deck the Halls (Danny Devito), and Beethoven III.Recently, Hoey produced and co-wrote The Queen Of Metal Lita Fords latest release Living Like Runaway for SPV records to rave reviews. It was a thrill to work with Lita She is a true rocker and a pioneer for woman in rock. And lastly, shes a kick ass guitar player.To this day the guitar aficionado continues to tour extensively, endorsing Fender guitars and Amp, Monster cable, GHS Strings, Rocktron to name a few. He has been involved with the Rock n Roll Fantasy Camp as music director to include his latest stint at Campalooza 2013 in NYC jammin with legends like shred- maestro Yngwie Malmsteen, blues icon Johnny Winter, Robben Ford, the time-honored rocker Leslie West of Mountain and co-founding member of KISS Peter Criss. Hoey has toured and traded licks with the likes of Jeff Beck, Brian May of Queen, Joe Bonamassa, Ted Nugent, Joe Satriani, The Doobie Brothers, Foreigner, Styx, Steve Vai, Eric Johnson, Peter Frampton, and Dick Dale.
