Simon Kinny- Lewis will be joining up with American blues slide sensation Walter Jebe on his second trip to the states 2018. Simon 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 Tony Boyd (drums), Shannon Stitt (Hammond) and Rob Ewan (bass). Together they are a formidable musical combination and have 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.
