Steve Hill – The One-Man Blues Rock Band

Steve Hill releases a new 14 track live album, The One-Man Blues Rock Band, on Manhaton Records in the UK on Friday 11th May.

“The one-man band style has made Steve Hill the top star in the Canadian blues scene right now,” said Bob Mersereau of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, regarding the performer playing guitar, drums and whatever comes to hand as he sings too. Hill being a Multi-Juno award winner for Blues Album of the Year, and 2016 Maple Blues award winner for Electric Act of the Year, Guitarist of the Year” and Entertainer of the Year.

The One-Man Blues Rock Band was recorded live at La Chapelle, Quebec in Canada on 30th November 2017.

“I wanted to capture a live album that featured all the energy of my live shows,” said Hill. “There are no overdubs on this live album…  I play everything myself in real time.  There are no tapes or loops.  What you hear is what you get.”

The One-Man Blues Rock Band features originals that are outright rockers (‘Damned’,’ Dangerous’, ‘Rhythm All Over’, ‘The Ballad of Jonny Wabo’ and ’Still Got It Bad’ to more acoustic-based melodic tracks  such as ‘Emily’, and three re-imagined and rearranged covers, including ‘Voodoo Child’.
