Master blues guitarist Steve Rowe has earned his solid reputation from the press as a “Guitar Hero”, and has firmly established himself as an original Canadian Bluesman. Montreal CHOM radio’s Randy Renaud called Rowe a “head-down, have-guitar-will-travel professional who derives his greatest satisfaction from songs and notes perfectly delivered”. He was right. As is Rowe’s style, every note is deliberate and each tone carries meaning.
Rowe is pleased to present his fifth original release entitled Five. Written to push himself beyond traditional blues, Steve and the band remain true to the powerful blues sound that leaves plenty of room to let loose. Five delivers the solid drumming of Sam Harrisson, and features his uncle, Bob Harrisson, displaying his rarely heard mastery of brushes. With vocals shared between Steve and Alec McElcheran (Bass), Five brings a level of artistry and tradition that only comes after years of "La Vie en Blues".
