Hailed as one of today’s greatest living guitar players, Steve Kimock releases his long anticipated studio album, Eudemonic, on August 23, 2005 (SCI Fidelity Records). Together with 10-time Grammy winning drummer and composer Rodney Holmes, Eudemonic masterfully displays Kimock’s uncanny ability to balance passion and power with soaring grace. Its nine flawlessly produced original compositions highlight Kimock’s dynamic playing, technical ingenuity, and impeccable sonic expression. Forty plus years into a rich and vibrant musical career, Steve Kimock's Eudemonic confirms: this is the stuff that musical legends are made of.
Eudemonic is SKB’s debut album; a release five years in the making and highly anticipated by critic and fans. Kimock is that much of a perfectionist, and feedback so far suggests the final result is well worth the wait.
The Steve Kimock Band will tour this fall in support of Eudemonic, and like their studio work, the band’s live show is bold, inventive, and dynamic. As always, Kimock and Holmes have hand-picked a group of ace musicians, and the cast will rotate slightly – promising fresh material and inspired interpretations.
SKB welcomes the definitive soul-jazz keyboardist Robert Walter. Walter’s edgy and emotive style will round out the powerhouse collaboration of Kimock, Holmes, and Mathis – a collaboration that wowed audiences during Kimock's past Halloween and Spring Equinox runs. Shows with Robert Walter include:
