Quintessential guitarist Steve Kimock is hitting the road this spring with stops already scheduled for Connecticut, New York, Maine, Vermont, Ohio, Illinois, Missouri, Indiana, Tennessee and Atlanta. For the first large-scale tour in almost three years, he will be bringing Â Bernie Worrell (founding member of Parliament Funkadelic, Talking Heads) on keys, drummer Wally Ingram (Sheryl Crow, David Lindley), and bassists Andy Hess and Reed Mathis along for the ride. The band, which has already performed in key cities, will be launching new material as well as celebrating Kimock’s rich catalog of music over 30 years in the making.
A master of improvisation for nearly four decades, Kimock has been inspiring music fans with his transcendent guitar speak, voiced through electric, acoustic, lap and pedal steel guitars.Â While one can say that his genre is rock, no one niche has ever confined him.Â Instead, through the years, he’s explored various sounds and styles based on what’s moved him at the time, whether itâ€™s blues or jazz; funk or folk; psychedelic or boogie; gypsy or prog-rock; traditional American or world fusion.
Eternally seeking refinement of sound, spontaneity and synergistic collaboration, Kimock continues to pursue an insatiable quest to carry forward a legacy of compelling music that requires time to absorb in order to experience it fully.Â Those who make the voyage experience a sophisticated, mature musician coming into his own, and sharing a unique perspective based on his own inner workings not influenced by musical titans or trends.
