ABOUT JONTAVIOUS WILLIS
In his 2016 debut album, Blue Metamorphosis, Jontavious Willis ranges from Delta, Piedmont and Texas blues to gospel, garnishing positive reviews from such notable magazines as Living Blues and Blues & Rhythm. You can hear him on guitar, harmonica, banjo and cigar box, fingerpicking, flat-picking and playing slide. And these days you can see him everywhere from his front porch in Greenville, Georgia, to national stages as he opens for Taj Mahal and Keb’ Mo’. “That’s my wonderboy, the wunderkid. (Jontavious) is a great new voice of the twenty-first century in the acoustic blues. I just love the way he plays.”--TAJ MAHAL
