With 8 albums, a swag of accolades to his name and 20 years performing, writing and recording, Lloyd Spiegel has certainly squeezed more into his 30 years than many do in a lifetime. It’s that experience and presence well beyond his years that has seen him become one of this country's leading Blues artists and most respected guitarists.
Since age 13, Spiegel has toured the globe with frequent visits to Europe and the United States where he toured with countless blues legends and supported the likes of Ray Charles, Bob Dylan and Etta James. More recently, Lloyd found commercial success in Japan, performing sold out concerts at Tokyo Disneyland regularly.
Lloyd is also the world-wide demonstrator and premier endorsee for Cole Clark Guitars. Australia’s most internationally recognized musical instruments were first designed with Lloyd’s hard hitting style in mind and as a result, he has been invited to perform at every major guitar event in the world.
The latest album, Tangled Brew has been noted as Lloyd’s finest work in various publications. The year-long launch tour earned him a horde of new fans as well as 3 Victorian Blues Awards and sold out shows across Australia in the country’s most iconic music venues. ‘Tangled Brew’ was number 1 on the Australian blues/roots radio chart for several months and is still within the 20 most played blues albums on Australian radio.
“Spiegel has stamped himself as one of the best songwriters in the country, regardless of genre, of history, of ANYTHING. It’s a powerhouse of brutal honestly.”
