Multi-talented instrumentalist, Steve Hill is back with a video for his single, “I Won’t” from his latest album, Desert Trip.
The single was recorded at Valentine Studios in Los Angeles, with words by Steve’s good pal Johnny Pilgrim. It was recorded when he did his California road trip in 2016.
The video for “I Won’t” was filmed at Trou du Diable, a microbrewery that Steve partnered with to do the Desert Trip beer.

Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
First and foremost, I’m a guitar player.
I’m also a singer-songwriter.
I have put out 11 albums since 1997.
I have produced most of them and produced for other artists as well.
10 years ago I became a one-man band and have been doing that since then, notably with a trilogy of albums titled Solo Recordings.
My latest release is called Desert Trip and focuses more on the acoustic side of my playing.
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
My music is definitely Blues-based but there is as much Rock and Roll in it as well as Country and Folk. I love music in general and listen to a ton of stuff. All of that finds its way into what I do, it’s inevitable.
How have you been keeping creative during the Pandemic?
I’ve been keeping busy since the start of the pandemic. I’ve done plenty of online concerts. I’m a studio owner so I’ve been recording. I’ve given online guitar lessons. I’ve collaborated on other artist’s recordings. I’ve been playing guitar a lot.
Piano a little bit. Harmonica, pedal steel. Writing songs. Listening to records. A lot. Having fun with music.
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
If I had to choose one song out of my repertoire I’d choose Cold Hearts from Desert Trip. I’m very proud of that one.
Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so who are your current favourite Canadian bands/ artists?
My favorite Canadian bands/artists right now are probably Bahamas, Les Louanges and Charlotte Cardin.
I’m Jenna, and I am the founder and editor of Canadian Beats. I have had a strong love for Canadian music, which started many years ago. I have a passion for promoting these talented Canadian bands and artists, and that’s how Canadian Beats came to be. I am so proud of what it has become over the last few years, with many talented music lovers and writers coming together to spread the word of Canada’s music.
