Steve is an outstanding guitar player, a Juno Award winner, and a multiple "Maple Blues Award winner. Definitely one of the top Canadian Blues Guitar players, he is an engaging performer and not to mention just an all round nice guy as well.
"With “ Natural Fact,” Steve Strongman is well on my way to becoming my new favourite Canadian bluesman and definitely a hidden treasure everyone should discover, like many people including Buddy Guy, Joe Cocker and Randy Bachman already have."- Richard Amery, L.A. Beat “Even if you’re not into blues music at all, I would suggest that you stop in and see this guy live, anyway. You don’t have to be a fan of the music to know that there aren’t going to be many times in your life that you’ll see someone play who has a command of their instrument the way Strongman does.” - Velvet Rope Magazine"The combination of great vocals and guitar technique along with fine arrangements and production values make this a prime contender for the blues-inflected singer-songwriter arena. Steve’s guitar playing, whether finger-picking or slide propels the songs along giving a bluesy-feel throughout.Give this record a try and you’ll find much to like here." - The Blues Blast Magazine"A Natural Fact is my first intro to Steve Strongman, and wow what a intro it was, as he has quickly shot to the top of my favorite Canadian artists list. The CD gets my highest rating of 5*****, but some how I wished I could of ever given it more. Highly recommended and thoroughly enjoyed."- John Vermilyea, Blues Underground Network
