November 15, 2017 Review at The Ferry, Glasgow

I want to make one thing clear about Steve Hill before we go on to his unique selling point, or anything else: Musically he’s very, very good. It wouldn’t matter if this music was being played by a four piece band, a duo, or a big blues band. The songs are hard edged, prime blues/rock...

November 13, 2017 Wishbone Ash/Steve Hill – The Jam House, Edinburgh

First a word about support act Steve Hill, who has been doing the rounds with Wishbone Ash throughout this tour.  The Canadian is singular for his efforts in delivering hard-hitting blues rock as a one-man band, managing to play kick drum, hi-hat, cymbal and god knows what else in addition to guitar and vocals.  Now that runs the...

November 12, 2017 The Floral Pavilion New Brighton – Gig Review

From first bar to last, this was an evening of powerhouse rock at its very finest, with Montreal based, one-man-band Steve Hill performing on these shores for the very first time and cutting a yet deeper vein of popularity into the bargain. Man can this guy play! In fact, during the Ballad of Johnny Wabo...

November 9, 2017 Manchester Rocks Interview

It has been interesting watching Salford Quays evolve over the last 20 years, much like the way Steve Hill has evolved too, and tonight he played at The Lowry.  Not the main Lyric Theatre but the smaller and more intimate Quay Theatre where his performance gained him a standing ovation and at the bar afterwards...

October 31, 2017 Steve Hill at Leeds Town Hall Review

From playing in a British pub a few days ago to now playing such a large, grand venue like Leeds Town Hall with all its northern grandiosity and splendour, Steve Hill’s rise can only be described as stratospheric! The octopus-like one-man band is gone this evening but even stripped back to an acoustic guitar, harp...

October 29, 2017 Gig Review by Music News

The O2 Academy in Islington can be a really unforgiving place for a support artist unless they have something special to offer and Steve Hill most definitely had that ‘something’ about him. He is that really rare thing, a musician that plays as a ‘one man band’ without being compromised by having to play the...

October 26, 2017 Guitar great Steve Hill’s heading to Wirral for festival

Montreal-born and raised Steve is a phenomenon and almost the archetypal twenty-five-years-to-become-an-overnight-success story. He releases his third album, Solo Recordings Volume 3, on November 10 and is fast becoming noted for not only is obvious talent, but also his somewhat unusual stage craft. Steve Hill is the literal one-man-band, exhibiting not only stunning guitar work and...

Biography

2015 JUNO AWARD WINNER FOR BLUES ALBUM OF THE YEAR, 2015 MAPLE BLUES AWARD WINNER FOR ELECTRIC ACT OF THE YEAR, GUITARIST OF THE YEAR, RECORDING/PRODUCER OF THE YEAR AND ENTERTAINER OF THE YEAR

Steve-Hill_2016-01

When it comes to one-man bands, guitarist and singer extraordinaire Steve Hill has no limits. The truest definition of a one-man band; 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, 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 on the Canadian and international blues-rock scene. “The one-man band style has made him the top star in the Canadian blues scene right now.” (Bob Mersereau, CBC)

Following the success of his JUNO nominated Solo Recordings Volume 1, which also won album of the year at the International Blues Challenge in 2013, and JUNO Award winner Solo Recordings Volume 2, Steve Hill released Solo Recordings Volume 3 on March 4, 2016. Solo Recordings Volume 3 features originals that are outright rockers (Damned, Dangerous, Rhythm All Over, Smoking Hot Machine, Can’t Take It With You, Walkin’ Grave) to more acoustic-based melodic tracks (Slowly Slipping Away, Troubled Times, Emily) and three reimagined and rearranged covers (Still A Fool & A Rollin Stone, Rollin & Tumblin / Stop Breaking Down, Going Down That Road Feeling Bad).

Solo Recordings Volume 3 shows an artist at the top of his game and proves why the Montreal Gazette called him “the meanest guitar player in Canada.”

“When I started the Solo Recordings projects four years ago, I had hopes that the songs and performances would resonate with my existing fan-base”, says Hill. “I am constantly trying to improve on the songs, both lyrically and technically, live and recorded, in order to keep the fans excited about my material and live shows. I feel that Solo Recordings Volume 3 is my best work yet and I am excited to present it”.

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 Blues Festival, Mont Tremblant International Blues Festival, Thunder Bay Blues Festival, Kitchener Blues Festival and more. Steve Hill is clearly in his element as a solo artist and one-man band, inviting listeners into a world of musical madness in the form of blues and rock ‘n’ roll.
