Steve Kimock is one of today’s most talented guitarists and composers, a master musician known for his uncanny ability to balance passion and power with soaring grace. Relix magazine recently dubbed him “The Guitar Monk” for his relentless pursuit of ‘Zen and the art of guitar.’ Kimock has been immersing himself in music since he first picked up a guitar at age 16 and his devotion to his music is evident in every note he plays. His inimitable tone and distinctive sound is the result of endless experimentation with customized equipment, amplification and speaker design.
He’s a musician’s musician who has shared the stage with artists like Bruce Hornsby, The Allman Brothers, Steve Winwood, Bonnie Raitt , Jerry Garcia, Phil Lesh, Trey Anastasio and Jorma Kaukonen, to mention just a few. He’s played rock, blues, folk, country and salsa, but it’s his work with the Steve Kimock Band that has honed his own music, an indefinable blend of all his past influences. It’s rock, but with a free improvisational approach that is open to anything and everything that has ever been, or never been, played. It’s a familiar, yet far-reaching sound that keeps both players and listeners on their toes with its unexpected shifts in rhythm, mood and mode.
Steve and Bill recently teamed up to develop the Kimock Signature amplifier, an incredible tone machine that contains a mix of new, old, out of production, and custom components each individually chosen to produce the most toneful, responsive, articulate and musically inspiring Two-Rock amp to date. Only 25 units will be available due to parts scarcity. See the main page for details.
