"That's my Wonderboy, the Wunderkind. [Jontavious] is a great new voice of the 21st Century in the acoustic blues. I just love the way he plays."
– Taj Mahal
Every generation or so, a young bluesman bursts onto the scene and sends a jolt through the blues community. Jontavious Willis may just have that effect on people. Through original lyrics written by Willis himself, the 22-year-old rising multi-instrumentalist delivers stand-out fingerpicking, flat-picking, and slide prowess.
Grammy award-winning artists Taj Mahal and Keb’ Mo’ played an active role in producing Spectacular Class (2018) with Taj Mahal credited as Executive Producer and Keb’ Mo’ as the producer.
