About Lloyd Spiegel:
“A revelation, the consummate performer, an Oz Blues & Roots icon.” – Rolling Stone.
Lloyd Spiegel is a trailblazer at the forefront of modern blues and one of his country’s most recognised guitarists, recently being named in Australian Guitar Magazine’s list of the top 50 Australian guitarists of all time.
A touring artist since age 11, the 7–time Australian Blues Award winner has one of the most unique stories in music. He has sat with the founding fathers of modern blues from Brownie McGhee to Luther Allison and has supported the likes of Ray Charles, Bob Dylan and Etta James on tour.
His live performance blends jaw-dropping guitar expertise with a commanding voice, powerful songwriting and storytelling to deliver a complete concert experience, launching him onto theatre and festival stages across the globe.
Spiegel returns to Canada with his 8th release, ‘Backroads’ – a hard edged, personal and brutally honest account of his life. ‘Backroads’ follows up from his previous albums, which all debuted in the top 10 of the Australian independent music charts and for several months, held the #1 spot on the Australian Blues Chart.
