David Gogo

1969 -

Origin: British Columbia, Canada

Main instrument: Acoustic guitar/electric guitar

Genres: Blues, Rock

Hailing from Nanaimo, British Columbia, guitarist David Gogo has steadily proven himself as one of the country's top blues musicians. Inspired by a meeting with Stevie Ray Vaughan, Gogo went on to open for Johnny Winter and Buddy Guy when he was still a teenager. In 1992, the 22-year-old shared the stage with B.B. King at the Montreux Jazz Festival. He covered King's classic It's All My Fault on his 1994 self-titled debut. Since then, Gogo has forged his own blues-rock sound, twice winning the prestigious Maple Blues Guitarist of the Year award. In 2009, he released Different Views. Soul Bender came out in 2011, followed by Come On Down in 2013, and Vicksburg Call two years later.
