Albert Cummings was born in 1968. He is a well known blues guitarist hailing from Williamstown, Massachusetts. Being a fourth generation builder, his first album, From the Heart, was backed-up by Double Trouble.

He learned the basics of guitar playing from his father. But then again, his interest switched to playing banjo when he was just 12. At this juncture, he became a fan of bluegrass music.

He started presenting his shows on stage while going to festivals. He also won several contests in high school.

Even before he completed his graduation, he became a fan of recordings of Stevie Ray Vaughan. Then, in the year 1987, he saw Vaughan perform live and then he decided to follow his footsteps. Eventually, he took to guitar with a new outlook and resolved to be a star. As his family was into the home building business, he firstly completed his course into the building trade.

As Albert knew to hold on to new challenges, he jumped into the musical arena when he was 27. This is an age when the musicians either get themselves established or put their dream aside for the realities of life.

He had to do wood shedding for a long period and then only he could something concrete in his hand. Albert started sharing a bill with Double Trouble, the late Stevie Ray Vaughan's rhythm section

Bassist Tommy Shannon and drummer Chris Layton were very much impressed by the fire and passion of Albert. Eventually, they volunteered to play on and produce his debut recording.

It was in the year 2003 when the aptly-titled From the Heart (Under the Radar), with the awesome power of a Nor'easter blended with the soul of a natural born artist was released. B.B. King, who Cummings acknowledged with a funky version of "Rock Me, Baby," dubbed him as "…a great guitarist."

He proved that it is the talent that works in the long run and not the wardrobe. Soon after a year, he was resigned by Double Trouble who joined Cummings again. At this juncture, Cummings had signed with Blind Pig Records to create True to Yourself.
