In a world filled with blues-rock trios and quartets, Canadian bluesman Steve Hill stands alone – literally – himself providing all the drums, hi-hats, and harmonica needed to accompany his primary instruments of guitar and vocals.

March 24, 2016 Midwest Records’ Solo Recordings Volume 3 Review

This guy must really be something live because his records are wild affairs. A one man band led by his shredder side, the Canadian award winning electric white boy with the blues must have traded his soul for something at the other end of Highway 61 to play so possessed. No matter what he’s doing...

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. Throughout his lengthy and intense live shows, Hill performs standing up while singing and playing guitar, with 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. With roots in blues, rock and a little bit of country, Hill performs his original songs, blues classics and, quite often, raucous renditions of Jimi Hendrix tunes.

Widely considered one of Canada’s most prolific and exciting guitarists, this multiple award winning artist recently released the much anticipated follow-up to his JUNO nominated Solo Recordings Volume 1, which also won album of the year at the International Blues Challenge in 2013. Solo Recordings Volume 2 is a step up for Hill, embracing his roots and showcasing his talents and love of blues music even further. Solo Recordings Volume 2 and its predecessor was recorded live in the studio with Hill not only on guitar and vocals, but also on bass drum, hi-hat, shakers and whatever he can do with his feet at the same time. 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 was also nominated for a 2015 JUNO Award in the Blues Album of the Year category.

Featuring tracks that are heavy and hard hitting, deep and melodic, Hill manages to nail a wide rage of emotions with his songwriting and masterful guitar playing. With eight original songs and three covers, including Little Walter’s “Hate To See You Go”, Muddy Water’s “I Want You To Love Me” and Ray Bonneville’s “Simple Things”, Solo Recordings Volume 2 is sure to please the most discerning blues lovers and music fans in general. This incredible release proves why the Montreal Gazette called Hill “the meanest guitar player in Canada” and why Vancouver’s Real Blues Magazine has referred to him as “the best young Blues guitar player in North America.”

For the past 20 years Hill has been touring and recording and has shared the stage with many of his heroes like Ray Charles, BB King, ZZ Top, Jimmie Vaughan, Hubert Sumlin, Jeff Beck and many others. Over the course of eight 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 Montreal Jazz Festival, Mont Tremblant International Blues Festival, Thunder Bay Blues Festival, Kitchener Blues Festival and more. Steve Hill is clearly at home on the stage, inviting audiences to catch a glimpse of musical madness in the form of blues and rock ‘n’ roll.

“ This album has perfectly depicted Hill's ability to bring power to performance. Solo Recordings Volume 2 is a continuation of Hill's masterclass talents when it comes to creating awesome blues-based rock n roll. ”
