Quebec blues singer Steve Hill on his thriving career
Not to mention a few weeks ago in Toronto, Hill walked away with four Maple Blues Awards including “Entertainer of the Year” and “Guitar Player of the Year.”
“[It was] the best night of my life – my career,” he told Global Morning News anchor Richard Dagenais.
In 2014, Hill played just under 150 shows across Canada, running the odometer on his car up to a merciless 160,000 kilometres.
While he says performing on stage is the fun part, he admits the grueling schedule, with all its travelling and waiting, can take a toll.
“But I still love it,” he said.
“I love being on the road or in the studio recording stuff for the next album. I’m always working on the next record.”
In 2011, after his band’s album fell flat, Hill admits he considered quitting music.
Instead, the singer/songwriter decided to start playing solo gigs.
That’s how “Solo Recordings Volume One” was born.
It continues to be his best-selling album to date.
“I never would have thought this would happen, with me being one-man band,” he said.
His shows are memorable – not just for his warm rumbling voice and piercing guitar – but also because they are impressive feats of coordination – a true artist, he plays several instruments simultaneously.
