Steve Hill redefines the limits of a one-man-band with his album, Solo Recordings Volume 2, out on March 4. The singer-songwriter-composer explores new sounds, all the while paying homage to his blues roots. This album infuses the blues with a good dose of rock, folk and country.
In addition to singing and playing the harmonica and guitar, Steve Hill performs standing up, his feet playing bass drum, snare drum, hi-hats and any other percussions he can reach. Solo Recordings Volume 2 includes original songs, as well as covers of two blues classics from the 1950s.
With Solo Recordings Volume 1, Steve Hill won Best Self-Produced CD at the Memphis International Blues Challenge, 5 trophies at the 11th annual Lys Blues gala – most notably for the Blues Album of the Year – and one Juno nomination for Blues Album of the Year. Steve Hill has brought his one-man-band to 168 stages across Canada, the United States and Europe.En plus de chanter, de jouer de l’harmonica et de la guitare, Steve Hill performe debout pendant que ses pieds s’activent à animer une grosse caisse, une caisse claire, des cymbales hi-hat et d’autres percussions. L’opus comprend des compositions originales et deux reprises de classiques blues des années 50.
