Simon Kinny-Lewis is one of the new breed of blues guitarists making his mark worldwide. He takes the audience with him on a seismic journey of compelling blues guitar – along with a voice that Steve Lukather (guitarist Toto, Michael Jackson, Ringo Starr) describes as being similar to American blues star Joe Bonnamassa.

Simon’s own original brand of contemporary blues and rock has created a loyal fan-base of guitar enthusiasts around the globe. He has performed and recorded with highly regarded musicians such as Chris Cain, Anton Davidyants, Nate Ginsberg (Herbie Hancock’s band), Christian Howes, Simeon Cain (Henry Rollins Band) and many more.

He has produced two albums to date with his most recent “Catfish” reaching #1 on the Australian Blues and Roots Airplay Charts. (Simon’s first solo acoustic album that also features Australian harmonica great Chris Wilson).

His debut band album “Bad Whisky” is due for release mid 2018 and features his incredible band that includes top Sydney musicians Tony Boyd (drums), Shannon Stitt (Hammond) and Rob Ewan (bass). Simon has been turning heads at some of Australia’s biggest festivals including Thredbo Blues Fest, The Australian Blues Music Festival, Gympie Muster, Manly Jazz Fest, Tamworth Country Music Festival, Kiama Jazz & Blues Festival, and Bluestone Blues.

2017 ended on a high note with a string of shows in California with US Blues legend Chris Cain. 2018 is shaping up to be another big year with international tours scheduled throughout USA, Europe, South America and Indonesia, and also an Australian tour later in the year.

Tonight at the Dogs Bar he will be joined by Australia's best, Liam Kealy - Keys, Tony Boyd - Drums and Peter Neagoe - Bass

Reviews on Simon’s latest Band Album “ Street Blues “ Released September 01

" Great man. Your voice has a little Bonamassa in it.. which is cool. Love the tune too. KILLER solo!
 - Steve Lukather ( Toto, Michael Jackson, Ringo Starr, G3 ) on the title track " Street Blues "


" On Street Blues SKL reveals himself to be the true triple threat. World class guitar playing and vocals but crucially the songs to sell it all. Awesome. "
 - Paul J' O Brien ( Multi-award winning Australian Blues Guitarist )

Street Blues is a beautifully produced album that is a fantastic listening experience. Full of great original songs and choice covers. A perfect vehicle for Simon's clever writing, soulful singing and killer modern blues guitar playing. Love it ! "
 - Steve Edmonds ( Guitarist to some of Australia's finest recording artists - Jimmy Barnes, Renee Geyer, Doug Parkinson, Billy Thorpe, Delta Goodrem and more ) "

This is a very strong album from a seasoned player who has obviously worked hard. Impressive songwriting, soulful vocalist and a world class guitar player. "
 - Darren Jack ( Multi-award winning Australian Blues Guitarist )
 " Really dug Simon's CD. A little more sophistication than is usual in blues from Australia." Shane Pacey ( Voice of the Bondi Cigars )
