The Steve Fister band is a Southern Californian Rock Blues power trio led by the scintillating high energy guitarist Steve Fister. Steve Promotes his new ‘Deeper Than The Blues’ CD in between some high profile European dates with Joe Satriani.
Steve has been described by critics as “A brilliant guitarist… he not only has soul in his fingers, he has heart in his songs" (Music Connection) and "a talented, versatile guitarist with a love and respect for the instrument's place in several genres" (All Music Guide).
Three years ago Steve toured the UK for the first time in his own right playing 20 dates with WALTER TROUT & The Radicals. Now with the forthcoming release of a brand new album Steve is playing a brace of dates in the UK.
Steve’s performing and recording credits include stints with Michael Des Barres, Lita Ford, Pat Travers, Steppenwolf & Stu Hamm (Joe Satriani’s bass player).
Expect high energy Rocking Blues and Californian style Rock & Roll at its best!

Steve has been described as "a brilliant guitarist… he not only has soul in his fingers, he has heart in his songs" (Music Connection) and "a talented, versatile guitarist with a love and respect for the instrument's place in several genres" (All Music Guide).

Steve has played in Lita Ford's band in the eighties both live worldwide and on her hit studio albums but although this was eighties hard rock, he never lost his passion for American rooted blues music. Guitarist Steve Fister's fourth solo album (first in Europe) includes musical guests Gregg Bissonette (Carlos Santana, Ray Charles), Tony Franklin (The Firm) Stu Hamm (Joe Satriani), Tommy Aldridge (Ozzy Osbourne), Jimmy Haslip (Yellowjackets). Eddie Tuduri (Dwight Yoakam, Marianne Faithfull), and Carmine Appice (Jeff Beck, Cactus)

On Steve's albums, the guitarist/composer gets back to making music the way he hears it. "Melody and song content is priority one, but at all times I try to keep the drama and excitement levels high." Rhythm plays a large role in these ensemble like albums, but never sacrifices melody or raw emotion. "It is very important to retain a live but refined dynamic feel in the studio. Rather than over producing the guitar parts, I try to keep an open honesty, letting the feel of the song dictate my approach."
