Philadelphia is home to one of the finest blues harp players in the world, much to the surprise of people not “inside” the blues scene. Over the past forty-plus years, 2009 Handy Award nominee Steve Guyger has been dishing out some of the finest blues to be heard anywhere. Whether in a duo, trio, or with his band, The Excellos, Steve always rocks the house.

Steve has toured with the late Jimmy Rogers, among others, and has played with many of the great Chicago bluesmen and contemporary players, yet he remains one of the best kept secrets in blues. The late William Clarke called Steve “the best harp player I’ve ever seen.” Mark Hummel called him “a monster player.”

Steve has shared the stage with the greats in Chicago and the contemporary harp players touring the world today, names like Little Sammy Davis, Carey Bell, Rick Estrin, Rod Piazza, Kim Wilson, Mark Hummel, Charlie Musselwhite and many others. His playing, vocals, songwriting and stage presence have earned him a place among the best of the players on stage today.

Greg Sover
Jubilee is the follow-up to the critically acclaimed Songs of a Renegade, Sover’s 2016 debut album, which put him on the map and announced that he is one of the top emerging blues artists in Philadelphia and beyond.

To celebrate, the Greg Sover Band competed at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis in January, making it into the semifinals out of 240 bands, and showing everyone in attendance that the band from up North in Philly sure
knows how to play the blues.

Jubilee has been getting airplay in his hometown of Philadelphia at WXPN on Jonny Meister's Blues Show, and on over 90 blues programs nationally and internationally. The EP debuted at #20 in the Living Blues monthly charts, which serves as the Bible for Blues programming.

Jubilee peaked at #2 in The Roots Music Report's Top 50 Blues Rock Album Chart. Greg also had three songs from Jubilee in The Roots Music Report's Top 50 Blues Rock Song Chart:
“Emotional” at #1, “As the Years Go Passing By” at #23 and “Jubilee” at #38.

Jubilee is once again produced by Greg Sover Band bassist
Garry Lee along with Sover. Sover’s band of Philly heavyweights with extensive resumes also includes guitarist Allen James and drummer Tom Walling. The three are best known as Deb Callahan’s solid backing band.

And the great reviews for Jubilee have begun:

Living Blues Magazine raves this month, "Jubilee solidifies Sover's work as a guitarist, allowing him to showcase a variety of different styles. Sover's versatility reveals his musical genius".

Henry L. Carrigan Jr. - Living Blues Magazine
- April 2018

“Sover’s new E.P. is a follow-up to his awesome 2016 debut, 'Songs of a Renegade.’ This is an extremely well-played gaggle of tunes, blues and otherwise, a true celebration... Greg Sover is a solid singer, emotional without giving in to histrionics, and he’s a really freakin’ good guitar player... Sover and his guys pack a lot of emotional oomph into the 7 tracks that make up Jubilee.
Great songs that really touch you where it counts...”

And from the UK, “The Blues comes in many, many
variants and we will each have our favourite format; but the slick voiced singer and red hot guitarist easily straddles the Soulful Rhythm and Blues style that I’ve loved for 40+ years. Think a pumped up George Benson or Robert Cray...”
