Steve Gilbert's love of music began when he started taking guitar lessons while in elementary school, and he continued his musical education in Houston and Austin in the 1970s and early 1980s. He moved to Los Angeles in the mid 1980s, and soon formed The Scraps, an alternative roots band that performed often throughout Southern California. He came back to Houston in the late 1990s and returned to playing the music he loves, the blues. He helped form the H-Town Jukes soon thereafter, and the band brought its old-school blues sound all over the Gulf Coast while putting out a CD to critical acclaim in 2010. Now out on his own, Steve Gilbert continues to bring the blues back home, whether performing in a solo acoustic setting or with the Steve Gilbert Band. Steve's debut solo CD, "Hempstead Highway", was released in March 2016. It immediately appeared on RMRs Contemporary Blues CD chart and has garnered positive reviews in the US and internationally. From down-home shuffles to pain-soaked blues ballads, Steve Gilbert brings the listener back to the juke joints of Houston’s past by recreating the classic sound of times gone by.
