A master of improvisation for nearly four decades, Steve Kimock has been inspiring music fans with his transcendent guitar speak, voiced through electric, acoustic, lap and pedal steel guitars. While one can say that his genre is rock, no one niche has ever confined him. Instead, through the years, he's explored various sounds and styles based on what's moved him at the time, whether it’s blues or jazz; funk or folk; psychedelic or boogie; gypsy or prog-rock; traditional American or world fusion.
Threaded through this expansive and highly nuanced musical landscape is Kimock’s signature sound, the prodigious product of his ability to articulate crystal-clear tone, melody and emotion into intricately woven music crafted with technical brilliance. His passion and devotion to performing live is matchless, and his unparalleled ability to embrace and capture his audiences musically is the stuff of legends.
Kimock co-founded the jazz/rock band Zero in the ‘80s and KVHW in the ‘90s; since then, he has recorded and toured in various outfits under his own name. His collaborations with assorted bandmates and groups have provided an endless wellspring of inspiration for the guitarist, and he has shared the stage with a seemingly endless array of international musical luminaries. After almost 40 years on stage, Kimock is more committed than ever to a jubilant spirit of musical diversity -- the same spirit that has fed his desire to pursue an authentic relationship with the guitar since the day he realized his calling.
After a critically acclaimed Spring Tour, guitarist Steve Kimock embarks on a run of shows this summer with his new band,including a show in Japan at the celebrated Fuji Rock Festival. Kimock is collaborating with a legendary cast including Bernie Worrell on keys (Founding member and musical director of Parliament Funkadelic, Talking Heads), bassist Andy Hess (Gov't Mule, Black Crowes) and John Morgan Kimock on drums. The powerfully fun band plays new material and freshly showcases songs from Kimock's extensive 30-year catalog, along with lively covers.
