Master Blues guitarist Steve Rowe has definitely earned his solid reputation: Career highlights include opening for the legendary Buddy Guy at Montreal’s Metropolis Theatre, Colin James at The Montreal Spectrum and Bryan Lee at The Granada Theatre in Sherbrooke, jamming with blues legend Hubert Sumlin and playing with “Canada’s Prime Minister of the Blues”, Mr. Dutch Mason, who invited him to “Take it away, son!”. After backing Smokey Wilson, his advice to Steve was simple but direct: “You’re an honest bluesman. Don’t ever change!”. Steve Rowe’s approach to Blues comes from 50’s Chicago urban sound and 60’s British Blues. Although largely self-taught, he was influenced by Michael Bloomfield, all of the Kings (Freddie, Albert, & B.B.), Buddy Guy and Eric Clapton. Accolades and distinctions include 15 nominations from the Quebec Lys Blues Awards for “Best CD and Best Guitarist”, and all of his recordings have made it into the Top 20 CDs in the US Living Blues Charts, as well as Toronto’s Maple Blues Mag. Steve’s first album was filmed and broadcast by Bravo Television, and this third album, “Front Rowe Center”, was presented in a nationwide broadcast by Rogers TV, Live from the Ottawa Bluesfest!
