Montreal guitar hero Steve Hill is set to head out for a one-man band Canadian tour this summer and will be making a stop at Lorenzo’s Café June 24.
The tour is in support of his acclaimed multiple award winning release Solo Recordings Volume 2.
Hill is clearly at home on the stage, inviting audiences to catch a glimpse of his musical madness in the form of blues and rock ‘n’ roll.
Throughout his lengthy and intense shows, he performs standing up while singing and playing guitar, with 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.
With roots in blues, rock and a little bit of country, Hill performs his original songs, blues classics and quite often raucous renditions of Jimi Hendrix tunes.
In January, Hill was awarded four coveted Maple Blues Awards, including Electric Act of the Year, Guitarist of the Year, Recording/Producer of the Year and Entertainer of the Year. In March, he won a Juno for Blues Album of the Year. Hill also recently won five awards at the Lys Blues Awards in Quebec.
Hill’s reputation as an exciting performer has provided him the opportunity to showcase his talents at some of Canada’s biggest music festivals, including the Montreal Jazz Festival, Mont Tremblant International Blues Festival, Thunder Bay Blues Festival, Kitchener Blues Festival and more.
Tickets for his show at Lorenzo’s, 901 Enderby Mabel Lake Rd., are $15. Call 250-838-6700 to reserve.
