From SK Facebook Page::::
The world changes every day.
Seasons and cycles,
Suns and moons,
Births and deaths.

We endure, briefly.
Struggle and rejoice, succeed and fail to love and create,
Pick up the pieces to begin again and move on.
Try to open our hearts to the beauty and mystery of existence.
If only for a moment.
That’s all it takes.

And a moment’s all we have.

Bernie Worrell has passed.
I’ve known no sweeter man, shared no better times.
Never laughed harder, never had my heart more opened to joy and creativity in the moment than in his presence.

He made this life worth living for so many people.
I’m so sorry he’s gone.
We love you Bernie!!

We can never thank you enough.
God bless and keep you, rest in peace.

Steve Kimock with David Lindley

February 8th 2016

Screen Shot 2016-02-03 at 4.27.58 PM The inspiring multi-instrumentalist David Lindley in Concert with Special Guest Steve Kimock!
What an honor for Kimock to play with Mr. Dave, his hero, for the first time live.

“A David Lindley performance isn’t just an awe-inspiring demonstration of string prowess, It’s a portal to far-flung realms, a magic carpet ride skittering around the globe offering vivid glimpses of Jamaica, the Mississippi Delta, Madagascar, Turkey and Cuba.” — San Jose Mercury News

Multi-instrumentalist David Lindley performs music that redefines the word “eclectic.” Lindley, well known for his many years as the featured accompanist with Jackson Browne, and leader of his own band El Rayo-X, has long championed the concept of world music.

The David Lindley electro-acoustic performance effortlessly combines American folk, blues, and bluegrass traditions with elements from African, Arabic, Asian, Celtic, Malagasy, and Turkish musical sources. Lindley incorporates an incredible array of stringed instruments including but not limited to Kona and Weissenborn Hawaiian lap steel guitar, Turkish saz and chumbus, Middle Eastern oud, and Irish bouzouki. “Mr. Dave’s” uncanny vocal mimicry and sense of humor make his onstage banter an additional highlight of the show.

A huge influence on Kimock’s playing, this show is a do not miss for any fan!

NEW ALBUM: Last Danger of Frost

February 4th 2016

Last Danger of Frost Steve Kimock breaks new ground with his latest solo effort, Last Danger of Frost. Recorded in Kimock’s century-old Pennsylvania barn last winter before a move back to California, Last Danger of Frost offers a daring personal expression that introduces innovative techniques the guitarist discovered in a solo setting. Kimock dismantles the rock band framework and takes a full stretch to create exploratory sounds and intimate compositions that may have been waiting to be revealed – or rediscovered – the whole time.

“There are other spaces and experiences music flows into, fills, and conforms to: family, nature, travel, quiet study and contemplation, imagination, to name a few. For me, the balance of the music has shifted to ‘other,’” Kimock declares. As evidenced on Last Danger of Frost, the “other” morphs acoustic and electronic sounds, voiced by vintage guitars, synthesizers and bass. For instance, the “other” found him laying down an entire track using nothing but guitar feedback, manipulated into bird song that he overdubbed into the ambient “Big Sky”.

Kimock at Fur Peace in 2016!

October 15th 2015

Screen Shot 2015-10-15 at 12.22.38 PMSteve Kimock will be returning to Jorma’s Fur Peace Ranch on September 23rd-September 26th  to lead workshops in Improvisational Guitar – Concepts and Techniques.

According to Kimock, “these workshops will focus on improvisational concepts and guitar techniques with the goal of finding your individual voice on the instrument. It’s all about the guitar, but bring your slides and steels! Keith Richards once said Blues was “all about bending notes” but never got to the part about which notes and how much. That’s where we’re going. In between the cracks of the keyboard and western music theory to unlock the expressive potential of the guitar from the perspective of modern blues and rock guitar styles.”

If intonation, touch, and tone are what interest you, this is where you need to be!
09/23/16 – 09/26/16
Improvisational Guitar – Concepts and Techniques

Steve Kimock will also lead a quartet for the Saturday night show at Fur Peace Station, which is of course included if you attend the workshops! Good news: Bobby Vega will also be an instructor this year.
