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!

Kevin Breit New Release "Field Recording" & Summer Tour Dates

 Kevin Breit New Release "Field Recording" & Summer Tour Dates
Solo, Group and Sideman Dates
Across Canada
Canadian artist Kevin Breit is without a doubt one of North America’s most enigmatic and multifaceted guitarists. Considered a “guitarist’s guitarist”, Breit  has recorded with Norah Jones, Rosanne Cash,  k.d. Lang, Hugh Laurie, Holly Cole, Amos Lee, Jane Siberry, Molly Johnson, Serena Ryder, Natalie McMaster, Jane Bunnett, and many others.
Breit’s extensive career as an in demand guitarist has seen him garner multiple awards and accolades - he has performed on recordings that have earned ten Grammy Awards. Always on the lookout for new musical adventures, Kevin Breit recently released his new CD Field Recording to critical acclaim from reviewers across Canada, USA and Europe.
"Seriously, they really should just forget the voting, and start throwing awards and accolades at this disc. The songs alone are worth that, never mind the fact that its ALL MANDOLINS.  The only person that comes to mind for this level of inventiveness is Ry Cooder, and I mean that as the highest praise. I couldn't love this more." - Bob Mersereau, CBC
Breit manages the seemingly incongruous, material that sounds familiar yet utterly unlike anything else, and the results are endlessly fascinating. It's brainy and challenging but packs a powerful emotional punch....there's a glimpse of genius at work here, and it's well worth checking out." - John Taylor, Blinded By Sound
"Thoughts jump to this offbeat concept sounding like something from another planet; but it has a strange hold over the listener and works in the adventurous style that blends the arrangements and melody together." - Steve Rapid, Lonesome Highway
Featuring The Upper York Mandolin Orchestra,  this collection of 11 brilliant and incredibly catchy originals showcases Breit’s adept skills on the mandolin and vocals as well as masterful and thought provoking songwriting.
