You won’t find many guitarists on Chicago’s world-renowned Indie blues scene who are as busy as Breezy Rodio. Breezy has become a globetrotting ambassador for Chicago blues serving up tough, uncompromising sounds wherever he performs. It was 2011 when Breezy released his first solo blues album Playing My Game Too. In early 2015 Breezy self-released his sophomore blues album So Close To It. It found him in the studio with a host of certified Windy City legends including guitarists Lurrie Bell and Carl Weathersby, harpist Billy Branch and organist Chris Foreman providing spirited backup. The album earned Rodio rave reviews in blues magazines worldwide and plenty of radio airplay making it to the number two spot nationwide in the Chicago Blues category on the Roots Music Report. Breezy has toured South America, Europe, Japan, Mexico and Canada. He has played countless blues festivals and still plays many of Chicago’s local venues.
Breezy Rodio immigrated to the states at an early age, fell in love with the guitar and blues music as a teen, then worked his way to Chicago where veteran Linsey Alexander put Breezy to work after the newcomer landed in Chicago. During his decade-long stay with Linsey, Breezy became bandleader, performed over 300 gigs a year including numerous international tours and recorded on Linsey’s three Delmark albums; Been There Done That (Delmark 822), Come Back Baby (Delmark 838) and Two Cats (851).
