Montreal’s guitar hero Steve Hill is set to head out for a one-man band Canadian tour this summer and will make a stop in Swift Current on June 19 as part of the Long Days Night Festival.


The tour is in support of his acclaimed multiple award-winning release Solo Recordings Volume 2.
When it comes to one-man bands, guitarist and singer extraordinaire Hill has no limits.
Throughout his lengthy and intense shows, Hill 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 2015, 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, Hill won the 2015 JUNO Award for Blues Album of the Year. If that weren’t enough, Hill 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 Montreal Jazz Festival, Mont Tremblant International Blues Festival, Thunder Bay Blues Festival, Kitchener Blues Festival and more.
Hill is clearly at home on the stage, inviting audiences to catch a glimpse of musical madness in the form of blues and rock ‘n’ roll. 
Steve Hill  w/ Bend Sinister will perform Friday, June 19 at 8:30 p.m. at the Long Days Night Festival at Swift Current. Tickets start at $30. Visit www.ticketedge.ca.
