What the press is saying:
“Unlike too many who concentrate on merely the technical, Fister is a well-rounded musician for whom the song is what matters. Although technically brilliant when need be, it’s never an end in itself. A gifted vocalist as well, he shines in a live setting”.
(Nightwatcher’s House of Rock)
“Steve Fister has forged a solo style uniquely his own. Playing a form of blues rock fusion, Fister doesn’t just blend genres, he creates new ones”.
(Bernard Baur, Music Connection)
“An excellent player who often reminds me of my friend Roy Buchanan. Really good taste, and great chops”.
(Bruce Iglauer, Alligator Records)
