More information about Philip Sayce, Stevie Nimmo Trio tickets
Originally born in Wales, Sayce moved to Toronto as a young child. As a teenager he became heavily influenced guitar greats including Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Jeff Healey and Mark Knopfler. “I still have distinct memories listening to these incredible musicians,” Sayce says. “Their music had a huge effect on me.”
Guitar and vocal powerhouse Philip Sayce calls his new album Steamroller, and that’s absolutely perfect.
From the moment the title cut’s colossal riff kick-starts the disc until the wall of feedback that finishes the soaring instrumental “Aberystwyth” concludes the set list, Sayce’s fourth release is a rock ‘n’ blues joyride — a heavyweight sonic and emotional juggernaut fueled by Sayce’s unstoppable talent.
STEVIE NIMMO TRIO
As one half of Scotland’s highly respected ‘Nimmo Brothers’, Stevie Nimmo has been a well known and respected figure throughout the blues and roots world for over 15 years.
Now, having toured extensively with the critically acclaimed blues rock outfit over the last few years, as well as taking to the road in a stripped back, acoustic format to continue promotion of his debut solo project ‘The Wynds of Life’, Stevie is now setting out on a new adventure in a full-on, electric, no-holds-barred trio format.
Stevie says that, although the acoustic project is extremely satisfying and allows him to showcase his voice and song writing talents in the perfect environment, sometimes “…you just want to break out the Les Paul, crank up the old orange amp and make some noise!”
Which is exactly what he plans to do. The writing process is already underway and a new album is being planned for 2014.
He is enjoying making music now as much as at any point throughout his 20 years in the business and is fully relishing the fresh challenge of a brand new project.
Don’t miss this chance to catch an artist at the top of his game doing what he does best – standing on stage playing his own music in his own passionate, inimitable fashion. You will not be disappointed!
What they say:
‘Man that guy can sing!’
David Grissom (storyville)
‘Stevie’s voice is at times gritty, other times emotional but all times perfection!’
‘Stevie possesses a great depth to his work. He has come through with an album befitting those lending support and that pretty much says it all.’
Displaying a burning passion to get down and dirty, he becomes neck deep in the swampy Louisiana side of things when he comes up with a future blues steeped rock gem as ‘Long Road To Heaven’.. Muscle Shoals at its peak would be proud of having recorded this track!’
