Steve " West " Weston ( USA )
STEVE “WEST” WESTON, He has got a pretty solid claim to being London’s top harmonica man. His tone is extraordinary , as is his taste and style, and within his chosen field - old style Chicago/West Coast harp playing- he’s right up there with anyone in the world today.
Introduced to the piano at age 7 with a few boogie woogie classics, Weston quickly found a calling in music. Playing his preferred laid-back Chicago style American blues to the louder British blues. Steve Weston captures any audience with unique charisma be it as a performer within the band or it’s leader onstage. The last couple of years have seen West Weston touring extensively with Mud Morganfield [Son of Muddy Waters] and also top the album charts with Wilko Johnson and Roger Daltrey.
Today, Weston ranks among the very best harp players in the European blues world. His work on the harp is at once deep in the tradition of harmonica masters Sonny Boy Williamson 2 and Little Walter while at the same time pushing that tradition forward
