Steve Hill

Origin: Quebec, Canada

Main instrument: Acoustic guitar/electric guitar

Genres: Blues, Rock

A native of Trois-Rivières, Steve Hill first made his mark while accompanying the biggest names in Quebec blues. His passionate stage performances also got people talking. A disciple of Eric Clapton and Muddy Waters, Hill launched his first album of original compositions in 1997. He has regularly attended the Festival, where in 1999 he had the opportunity to share the stage with legendary bluesmen Buddy Guy and Jimmie Vaughan. And his star continues to rise: Real Blues magazine described him as the best current blues guitarist in North America. In 2007, Hill undertook a major shift with his fourth album, Devil at My Heels, delivering heavy yet energetic rock. The Damage Done came out two years later, followed by Whiplash Love (2011) and Solo Recordings - Vol. 1 (2012).
