Steve Strongman is a Canadian blues guitarist, singer and songwriter originally from Kitchener, Ontario. He has released three full length blues albums, Honey and Blues in Colour and A Natural Fact.

You know never did get to listen to A Natural Fact. I will have to look for it!! But back to Steve and his fine music…. from his website:
