I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Guitarist Steve Hill Releases Solo Recordings Volume 2

 "Montreal’s Steve Hill is hands-down the meanest guitar player in Canada."  Richard Burnett, Montreal Gazette 

One of Canada’s most prolific and exciting guitarists, Steve Hill has recorded 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, held in Memphis 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.
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.”
