The aptly-named, riff-laden Electric Field Holler has received highly acclaimed recognition; reaching #1 on both Roots Music Report's Blues Rock Chart and ReverbNation’s Global Blues Chart as well as earning several nominations for Blues Rock Album of the Year.
The Toronto singer/songwriter/guitarist is propelling blues rock into the contemporary music culture with his unapologetic approach to reinventing the genre in relevant and fresh ways. “The blues is old, but not tired” said Anthony, adding: “It speaks as truthfully today, and for this generation, as it ever has.” Blues Music Magazine writes, "the formidable guitar chops and authentic singing place him in the forefront of modern blues." This, along with his high-energy shows and dynamic stage presence, make him one of the top draws on the Rock/Blues circuit today. And the facts speak for themselves. Gomes has performed in 17 countries and has shared the stage with B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Robert Plant, Joe Bonamassa, Heart, Jonny Lang, Sammy Hagar, 38 Special, Robert Cray and Kenny Wayne Shepherd.
Gomes’ instinctive mastery of his craft is matched by his knowledge of and dedication to blues history. He is an award winning blues history scholar, earning the University of Toronto’s C.P. Stacey Prize for the highest overall academic grade point average by a history student. Anthony also completed his master’s degree thesis on the racial and cultural evolution of blues music, graduating with high distinction. In 2014, his thesis was published and nominated for the Best Blues Book of the Year by Blues 411.

In just a few years the Terry Quiett Band has become a mainstay across America’s Heartland. From 6th Street in Austin…to the windy city of Chicago…through the mountains of Colorado…across the deserts of Arizona…jamming down on Beale Street in Memphis…wherever they go the TQB has won over young and old with their energetic and soulful sound.
Along the way they have forged relationships with Grammy-winning studio masters Jim Gaines and Blaise Barton. Between them, they have worked with legends of the blues industry such as Stevie Ray Vaughan, Carlos Santana, Steve Miller Band, George Thorogood, Luther Allison, Albert Collins, Pinetop Perkins, Willie Smith, Michael Burks and many more.
Jim, Blaise and Terry first teamed up on the 2011 release "Just My Luck" (on Lucky Bag Records) exposing the Terry Quiett Band to a national audience for the first time. By the end of 2011 it was listed as #74 on the top 100 played CD's on the Roots Music Report Blues Chart for the year. They joined forces again in 2012 to record the live CD "A Night at the Orpheum" which received fantastic reviews from the blues world.

He began learning guitar at age 6, drawing inspiration from his rich St. Louis blues heritage and legendary guitarists, like Alvin Lee, Eric Clapton and Hank Williams Sr. and Jr. With these influences, Johnson began building his musical foundation.
Johnson's sixth studio album, Blues Heart Attack, was released worldwide on July 22, 2016. This unique record is a blend of Johnson’s entire musical career. “It’s a combination of our earlier works, and then Grind,” he explained. “There’s horns and keyboard reminiscent of Brand Spankn’ Blues, but also some heavy guitar driven tracks. It’s the evolution of everything in a Blues Heart Attack.” Special guest performers include Frank Bauer on sax, Tom ‘Papa’ Ray on harmonica, and Nathan Hershey on keys. Blues Heart Attack reached #5 on the Billboard blues charts.
