Guitarist and singer extraordinaire Steve Hill is the truest definition of a one-man band. He has no limits: he performs standing, singing with a guitar, his feet playing the drum and a drumstick fused to the head of his trusty guitar to play any other percussion instruments within reach. An overnight sensation, 20 years in the making, Steve Hill is an ambitious, raucous force to be reckoned with on the Canadian and international blues-rock scene. “The one-man-band style has made him the top star in the Canadian blues scene right now.” (Bob Mersereau, CBC). His reputation as an exciting performer has provided him with the opportunity to display his talents at some of Canada’s biggest music festivals. Steve Hill is clearly in his element as a solo artist and one-man band, beckoning listeners into a world of musical madness in the form of blues and rock’n’ roll.
