Artur Menezes is an indie artist taking the blues rock scene by storm! As a highly energetic guitarist, singer and songwriter, Art impresses the crowds with his feeling and showmanship. Although very much influenced by blues, he crosses genres with psychedelic rock, funk and brazilian rhythms such as “baião”, creating his own voice and sound, which has been attracting younger audiences and helping to keep the blues alive.
Based in Los Angeles, the brazilian artist is making his name playing around US, promoting his latest album “Keep Pushing” (4th album) and his new single / music video “Fight for Your Love”.
Recently Artur won the Grand Prize in a contest promoted by Ernie Ball to perform at the Crossroads Guitar Festival.
Winner of the Gibson/Albert King Award for Best Guitarist by the Blues Foundation and 3rd place at the International Blues Challenge 2018, Artur plays the blues with expertise and respect, but also mixing with other styles.
