Nowadays, there are so many great solo guitar players mining a vein started by John Fahey and extended by everyone from Loren Connors to Jim O’Rourke. There are so many, in fact, that standing out is almost impossible. Yet Steve Gunn has somehow managed that trick.
Leaving behind a spellbound and completely amazed audience at Monarch in 2012, Kurt Vile guitarist and outstanding artist in his own right, Steve Gunn will return to Berlin in January 2014. This time he will bring a band to perform songs off of his current release “Time Off” which earned him rave reviews and a couple of spots in several Best Albums of the Year 2013 lists.
Steve Gunn & Band | Lurker (live at Atlantic Sound Studios)
While Steve is still a groundbreaking guitar player, he has in recent years turned to the more compositional/song side of music and has started working on proper songs, to which he adds his soothing and yet powerful voice. Steve has a new album to come out soon, partially backed by the Black Twig Pickers (who colaborated with Jack Rose in 2009).

Also this year he released the duo with drummer John Truscinski “Ocean Parkway” on Three Lobed Recordings (Bardo Pond, Six Organs of Admittance, Jack Rose, etc), where he has previously recorded in 2009 his most acclaimed/accomplished record to date “Boerum Place”.
This event is highly recommended by Digital in Berlin! We are giving away 1 x 2 tickets. Just send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Steve Gunn” as the subject.
