Gary Clark Jr. Praises "The Cannon," Guitar Effects Pedal Designed For Toronzo Cannon

[06/12/2020]
Guitar superstar Gary Clark, Jr. recently shared his love of The Cannon -- the guitar effects pedal designed by Function-fx (https://function-fx.com/site/the-cannon-dual-fuzz/) for Chicago blues sensation Toronzo Cannon -- with his many social media friends and followers.

"The Cannon," says Clark, "got me where I need to be. This is not an ad. Just showing love."

Songwriter, guitarist, vocalist and Chicago Transit Authority bus driver Toronzo Cannon fuses his original, keenly-detailed tales of everyday life with his fiery guitar playing. UK tastemaker music magazine MOJO named his latest Alligator Records album, The Preacher, The Politician Or The Pimp, the #2 Best Blues Album Of 2019. Cannon recently received three 2020 Blues Music Award nominations.

Blues Music Magazine says, “Cannon has all the fire and spontaneity of the Chicago legends. His songwriting is a timely and original look at the world he sees by day on a bus and in blues clubs by night, and his assertive voice is the perfect vehicle to deliver the message.”
