Predicted to be the next Irish blues guitar hero in the footsteps of Rory Gallagher and Gary Moore, former Young Guitarist of the Year Simon McBride has undeniable guitar artistry combined with a fine voice and a real knack for creating memorable hooks and great melodies.

His latest CD Crossing The Line is a fiery amalgam of guitar skills, songcraft and character-soaked vocals, spinning tales of girls, gambling and corporate avarice. Industry critics reckon this is the album that truly delivers on McBride’s potential.

“Hugely accomplished.” MOJO

“Ireland has a knack of throwing up diamonds, of which McBride most definitely is one… this boy’s going places.” – HIFI+

“McBride is now among the best blues-rock players anywhere in the world.” – GUITARIST MAGAZINE
