Too often, Blues guitarists remain true to the Blues and it confines them. Pigeon holes their talent and next thing you know, twenty years have passed and another whisky shot comes there way at four in the morning.
Few (over the years) have come to the realization that Blues may be the necessary classroom but diversity is the only way out of high school and into University.
Please listen below to my chat with Justin Saladino – a guy who will graduate with flying colors.
Trois Rivieres native and guitar player extraordinaire Steve Hill is a busy guy. Following a very successful jaunt to Europe – Hill is home for a little bit before heading off to England and Germany once more.
It was while he was ‘home’ and doing a gig in the province of Quebec that Steve finally recorded a long awaited live album.
“The One-Man Blues Rock Band” is the name of the album and it was a project that Hill wanted to get right. Hence the nine studio album delay. A live album can be a tricky thing when work dictates reality and time is short.
Please listen below to my chat with Steve about the live album, master classes and his upcoming gig opening up for ZZ Top in Quebec City in August.
