Steve Hill, the one-man band blues rock machine, will release his new 14-track live album “The One-Man Blues Rock Band” on Manhaton Records in the UK on Friday 11h May 2018. To support the release, Steve will tour the UK in May supporting King King and Danny Bryant.
“The one-man band style has made Steve Hill the top star in the Canadian blues scene right now,” says Bob Mersereau of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
“Steve Hill has a distinctly old-school blues sound with a fresh contemporary twist and it is most certainly refreshing to see.”
– National Rock Review
“If you love Blues based rock and you’ve never heard of Steve Hill,
I guarantee you will become a fan after you hear his music.“
– Dedicated Rocker
When it comes to one-man bands, guitarist and singer extraordinaire Steve Hill has no limits. Anything goes. He is the true exponent of a one-man band. Steve 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.
Steve’s an overnight sensation that’s 20 years in the making. He’s an ambitious and raucous force to be reckoned with on the Canadian and international blues-rock scene. Now, he’s ready to break out internationally.
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 first released his brand new album Solo Recordings Volume 3 in Canada on March 4, 2016. Now, a year later, the album will finally be released domestically in the UK on Friday 6th October 2017.
“The One-Man Blues Rock Band” features originals that are outright rockers (Damned, Dangerous, Rhythm All Over, The Ballad of Jonny Wabo, Still Got It Bad to more acoustic-based melodic tracks (Emily) and three re-imagined and rearranged covers (Voodoo Child). The live album shows an artist at the top of his game. It comes to no surprise why the Montreal Gazette has referred to Steve Hill as, “the meanest guitar player in Canada.”
