One of the creative and powerhouse forces behind the hard – grunge – metal rock luminary Alice in Chains is its main man — founder, lead guitarist, co-lead vocalist, and main songwriter, Jerry Cantrell. The band became one of the prime movers of the grunge rock movement in the 90s.
In 1998, Jerry Cantrell ventured out on a solo project with the release of his first solo album "Boggy Depot"; then followed by his 2002 double CD album release, "Degradation Trip". Be it solo or in a group, Cantrell is one of those grunge musicians who has managed to demonstrate that his artistry is a cut above the rest. British hard rock/metal magazine Metal Hammer in 2006, gave him the moniker "riff Lord". And true to this nickname, Cantrell received more citations as Guitar World Magazine ranked Cantrell as the 38th out of "100 Greatest Heavy Metal Guitarists of All Time" in 2004, and the 37th "Greatest Guitar Player of All Time" in 2012. Cantrell's guitar solo in "Man in the Box" was also lauded by Guitar World listing it at No. 77 on the "100 Greatest Guitar Solos" in 2008.
"Brighten" will be Cantrell's first solo outing since 2002, that he would be taking along on this 2022 tour; and with this Cantrell says: "Looking forward to rawking out with you all."
