Steve Hill "The One-Man Blues Rock Band" Live Album
Steve Hill, the one-man band blues rock machine, will release his new 14-track live album "The One-Man Blues Rock Band" on Manhaton Records in the UK on Friday 11th May 2018.
When it comes to one-man bands, guitarist and singer extraordinaire Steve Hill has no limits. The true definition of a one-man band; Steve Hill performs standing up while singing and playing guitar, his feet playing bass drum, snare drum, hi-hats and with a drum stick fused to the head of his trusty guitar, with any other percussion within reach. An overnight sensation 20 years in the making, Steve Hill is an ambitious and raucous force to be reckoned with.
Steve Hill’s album Solo Recordings Volume 1 won “Album of The Year” at the 2013 International Blues Challenge; the album was also nominated for a JUNO award.
In January 2015, Hill was awarded four coveted Maple Blues Awards including Electric Act of the Year, Guitarist of the Year, Recording/Producer of the Year and Entertainer of the Year. Solo Recordings Volume 2 won the 2015 JUNO Award for Blues Album of the Year.
2017 saw the UK release of Steve Hill’s album Solo Recordings Volume 3 and shows an artist at the top of his game and proves why the Montreal Gazette called him “the meanest guitar player in Canada”.
Throughout his career, Hill has shared the stage with many of his musical heroes including Ray Charles, BB King, ZZ Top, Jimmie Vaughan, Hubert Sumlin, Jeff Beck and many others. Over the course of nine albums he's explored everything from hard rock, country, and stoner rock to folk music while always incorporating the essence of his first love, the blues.
Hill’s reputation as an exciting performer has provided him the opportunity to showcase his talents at some of Canada’s biggest music festivals including the Montreal Jazz Festival, Ottawa Bluesfest, Jazz Winnipeg Festival, Saskatchewan Jazz Festival, Kitchener Blues Festival and more.
