There are reasons why Canadian blues artist Steve Strongman was the
2011 Maple Blues Award winner for Guitar Player of the Year. There are
reasons why Steve Strongman consistently packs venues across Canada
for his performances. There are reasons why he was chosen as one of
Hamilton, Ontario's "Top 40 Achievers Under 40 Years Old" by the area's
major newspaper. There are reasons why in the last three years
Strongman has performed at major blues festivals in Rio de Janeiro,
France, Switzerland, Mexico City, Memphis and Canada, including two
appearances at the famed Montreal International Jazz Festival, four appearances at the Mont Tremblant International Blues Festival, and the Ottawa Blues Festival.
Beyond Strongman's talent as a songwriter, guitarist and front man is his ability to engage his audience and deliver an outstanding performance at every live show. With his inimitable guitar playing and soulful vocals, Strongman delivers incredible performances with power and passion.

Beginning his professional music career at the age of 16, Strongman has spent over 20 years touring Canada, Europe and, more recently, South America. Along the way he's been chosen to open shows and perform with Buddy Guy, Jimmie Vaughan, Randy Bachman, Roy Clark, Otis Clay, Jeff Healey, Sonny Landreth, and British legend, Joe Cocker, to name a few.

A Maple Blues Award winner, he was the 2009 recipient of the prestigious Mel Brown Blues Award, as well as the 2010 Hamilton Music Award winner for Blues Recording of the Year for his second studio release, Blues in Colour.

Now Strongman is set to release his highly anticipated acoustic CD A Natural Fact, featuring solo acoustic material, with Alec Fraser on standup bass, Dave King on drums, Jesse O'Brien on piano, and a duet with blues and roots music sweetheart Suzie Vinnick.

"I've always had a love for acoustic based music, especially blues. I'm really proud of this CD and I look forward to showing people a different artistic side." Strongman says.

Steve Strongman has a way of stirring a crowd that evokes the emotion, maturity and authenticity of classic blues themes. His music speaks for truth and passion, and offers hope for the soul in the face of hard times in a way that that leaves audiences hungry for more.
