Steve Hill, known for his impressive one man band live show, brings this concept to the studio once again on his latest release Solo Recordings Volume 3. His modus operandi is to perform all of the instruments at the same time but this isn’t some novelty act. Steve writes, records, and performs very soulful blues based rock, and Americana in a serious way and unless you see him live or watch one of his videos, you would have no idea of his one man band mastery.Read More
Montreal Bluesman Steve hill recently launched Solo Recordings Volume 3 – his 10th record – and it sounds remarkable. From blues to hard rock or country, the mix of these influences blend perfectly together in a way that is rather satisfying.Read More
The Québec six-stringer Steve Hill is at the top of the Canadian Blues scene from sea to shining sea thanks to his seven Maple Blues Awards in two years, as well as the Blues Album of the Year JUNO award in 2015. And that’s just the beginning.
What’s behind all these awards? His four self-produced albums titled Solo Recordings, Vol. 1, Vol. 1 ½ (EP), Vol. 2 and Vol. 3 – the last one released a few weeks ago – bring the total of his recorded output to nine releases in 25 years on the scene by the amazing guitarist who found his own unique groove in his solo work.Read More
I just received the newest release, Solo Recordings Volume 3, by Steve Hill and it’s quite good! Opening with a Damned, modern take on a JL Hooker style boogie, Steve Hill, a soloist (plays everything), really gets things cranking. With basic drums and bass rhythm, Hill is a super singer and knows how to squeeze the juice out of his guitar on this driving blues rocker. Dangerous leans a little more toward the rock arena but with solid blues roots. This is a track with a catchy melody and powerful guitar riffs making it a natural for the radio.Read More
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. We first told you about Hill shortly after he captured four honors in the 2015 Maple Blues Awards, for entertainer, guitarist, electric act, and recording of the year for his Solo Recordings Vol. 2. Now Hill is back with Vol. 3 in that series, and it’s every bit as good as – if not even better than – his last.Read More
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 here, he makes it all his own and makes it unique.Read More
