Lloyd Spiegel is the world-wide demonstrator and premier endorsee for Cole Clark Guitars. The brand has based much of their evolution on Lloyd’s hard hitting style and he is actively involved as an advisor in most aspects of the company. He’ll be at Solbar tonight thanks to our friends at Shake It Up Music. We strongly advise reserving a spot…
With 8 albums, a swag of accolades to his name and 21 years performing, writing and recording, Lloyd Spiegel has certainly squeezed more into 33 years than many do in a lifetime. It’s that experience and presence well beyond his years that has seen him become one of this country’s leading Blues artists and most respected guitarists, recently being named in Australian Guitar Magazine’s list of the top 50 Australian guitarists of all time.
Since age 12, Spiegel has toured the globe with frequent visits to Europe and the United States where he toured as guitarist for countless blues legends and supported the likes of Ray Charles, Bob Dylan and Etta James. More recently, Lloyd found commercial success in Japan, performing sold out concerts at Tokyo Disneyland regularly.
The latest album, Tangled Brew has been noted as Lloyd’s finest work in various publications. The year-long launch tour earned him a horde of new fans as well as 3 Victorian Blues Awards. The album was the most played blues/roots CD on Australian radio 2 years running.
“Spiegel has stamped himself as one of the best songwriters in the country, regardless of genre, of history, of ANYTHING. It’s a powerhouse of brutal honestly.”
– Rhythms magazine
“This record, with effortless cool and style, heralds the arrival of a true star. Spiegel has been toiling for 20yrs. This is his statement, and indeed, the high watermark. Ignore it at your peril!!”
– Inpress magazine, Melbourne
“Tangled Brew is set to launch Lloyd from the trenches of continuous touring for no reward to the stratospheric heights of god given, past due recognition. Spiegel has always been known, over a career spanning almost two decades as a guitarist almost without peer but here in the hallowed confines of this record he truly shows why… Spiegel deconstructs how the blues guitar is supposed to operate, makes sweet love to it, then kicks it out the back door.”
