8 Ball Aitken has toured the world for more than a decade performing his swampy, blues rock across twenty countries to date. He’s earned a loyal fanbase from his live shows and internet videos, while paying his dues as a singer, songwriter, producer and slide-guitarist.
Since relocating to Music City, USA in 2012 from his native Australia, 8 Ball has worked with many of the best in the blues business today. During COVID lockdown 8 Ball self-produced three new albums from his home in Nashville. The musicians on the recording include Buddy Guy’s Grammy Award winning producer Tom Hambridge on drums, George Thorogood and the Destroyers saxophone player Buddy Leach, Sydney soul singer Taya Chani on backing vocals, and his brother Dillion James Aitken on keys. 8 Ball played all of the guitars, bass and harmonica on all of the albums.
The three new albums are being released one at a time throughout 2021. The newest single and album of the same tittle ‘Ice Cream Man’ are available now on CD and vinyl from www.8ballaitken.com and at his live shows. The new single Ice Cream Man hit #1 on the AMRAP Australian Metro Radio charts in February 2021 and the album debuted at #4 on the Australian Blues & Roots Charts.
Home is where the heart is, 8 Ball Aitken has recently returned to Australia and has been performing at many sold out shows and festivals.
