Swamp-blues-rocker 8 Ball Aitken has toured the world for more than a decade performing 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, slide-guitarist and producer.
8 Ball relocated to Nashville, Tennessee, USA in 2012 and has worked with many of the best in the blues business today. 8 Ball won second place in the 2021 International New Orleans Cigar Box Guitar Festival hosted by blues woman Samantha Fish.
During COVID lockdown 8 Ball self-produced three new albums from his home studio in Music City. The single Ice Cream Man hit #1 on the AMRAP Australian Metro Radio charts, and the album of the same title hit #1 on the Australian Blues & Roots Charts in March 2021.
The all-star cast of musicians on the recording included Buddy Guy’s Grammy Award winning producer Tom Hambridge on drums, George Thorogood and the Destroyers saxophone playing legend Buddy Leach, Sydney soul singer Taya Chani on backing vocals, and his brother Dillion James Aitken on keys among others. 8 Ball played all of the guitars, bass and harmonica on all of the albums.
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.
Ice Cream Man CDs and vinyl are available now from the store page on www.8ballaitken.com

Hopefully there won’t be any more lockdowns and these restrictions lift more over the coming months, so we can get back out and about as well as enjoy some live music at venues/events/festivals again.
I hope to see you out at some of the above shows over the next few months.
Keep it live, loud and local.
