Bill N Rickey

Steve performs regularly in venues big and small in and around London and the south-east of England. He is always working with new musicians and involved in recording projects. He has just produced a new EP recorded live with the drummer Al Hughes. Steve gets to travel country wide playing the top national Blues Festivals.

Steve has played guitar all his life. The exploration of guitar music from such an early age has created a musician whose performances appear effortless and natural. He is a master of open-chord tunings and he has a bottleneck technique that is fluid, sweet and original. While blues music has constantly inspired this musician his technique and writing style place him as an original. He openly confesses that as a poor copyist he quickly gave up looking just to other guitarists for inspiration. Instead he looked to many other instruments and used their influence to create his own sound.
