Steve Gunn is a New York-based guitarist and songwriter.
With a career spanning nearly fifteen years, Steve has produced volumes of
critically acclaimed solo, duo, and ensemble recordings. His albums with GHQ
and longtime collaborating drummer John Truscinski represent milestones of
contemporary guitar-driven, forward music. Mining the catalogs of Basho, Bull,
Chapman, and Sharrock, among other titans of stringed-things and record-session
royalty, Steve has steadily processed these inspirations into a singular,
virtuosic stream. Close listening reveals the influence of Delta and Piedmont
country blues, ecstatic free jazz, and psych, as well as Gnawa and Carnatic
music, on the continually unfolding compositions.
