Growing up in the shadows Chicago’s blues mecca, Theresa’s Lounge, had a lasting effect on Toronzo Cannon. As a kid, Toronzo would listen to the raw, soulful sounds of legends like Junior Wells, Buddy Guy and Muddy Waters. “It wasn’t just the music that got me, but the effect on the people. I knew right then, that was what I was gonna do.” These experiences led him to pick up his first guitar as a teenager and begin to learn to sing and play the sounds he heard. Inspired by the three Kings (Freddie, B.B. and Albert), a little Hendrix and some 70’s R&B/Soul, Toronzo soon developed his own sound. “If I wasn’t gigging I was hitting every jam session I could find. I couldn’t get enough.” It was during this time that he developed his own powerful, gospel-flavored vocal style and electrifying stage presence.
