Melbourne Blues artist Lloyd Spiegel has been performing for 30 of his 40years. The 14-time Australian Blues Award winner has one of the most interesting stories in music, having grown up on stage, learning from and touring with the founding fathers of modern Blues.That story and an unrelenting tour schedule has taken him to festival and theatre stages across North America, Asia and Europe and seen him become a trailblazer in the Blues genre as well as one of this country’s most respected guitarists. Spiegel’s blend of guitar wizardry, powerful song writing and knack for humorous story telling delivers a truly unique performance that reinvents the genre and dispels the cliches associated with the Blues.
“A revelation, the consummate performer, an Oz Blues & Roots icon.”-Rolling Stone
“A guitarist almost without peer, Spiegel deconstructs how the blues guitar is supposed to operate, makes sweet love to it, then kicks it out the back door”-Australian Guitar Player Magazine
“Spiegel is ALL presence, authority, rhythm and drive. He epitomises control, soul and passion with white hot ferocity and blazing instrumental mastery dangerous enough to spark a destructive inferno.”-The Age, Melbourne
