Listen: Worldwide Blues (Episode 1617)

Blues may be the Great American Music, but it is truly a global phenomenon. That’s why on this episode, we undergo a transcontinental trip across the global Blues landscape and listen to an hour of Worldwide Blues. All 13 of the songs on this show came to us from outside of the USA.



The featured selection from inside “Johnny’s Mailbox” is “Walkin’ Grave” by Steve Hill. It comes off his brand new album, Solo Recordings Volume 3. Steve has gone from one of Canada’s most promising talents, to a star on the rise in the global limelight. Hill has also all but perfected his one man band technique. On this new album, Steve sings, plays guitar, and also plays nearly an entire drum kit. Hill is also a songwriter, rounding out an amazing skill set.

Solo Recordings Volume 3 includes a dozen tracks that are made up of a mix of heavy Blues Rock tunes and more stripped down, acoustic Blues numbers. You can find out complete information about the album, as well as much more, on Steve’s official website
