Steve Hill (aka Steve Territo) has been playing music since he was eight years old. In 1965 he switched from playing the accordion (like many an Italian kid did in those days) to guitar and harmonica. in the early 1970's he came to the realization that the only style of music he was interested in performing in a band setting was blues, soul, and blues influenced rock and roll. Moving to the Dallas/Fort Worth area of Texas from his hometown of Chicago, Illinois, in 1974, Hill (now also singing), formed and played in a variety of bands. From 1982 until 1988 he headed The J.B. Strut Band which played around a seven state area as well as throughout Texas and released an album of several blues covers and seven original songs, four written by Hill and three by Hill in combination with other band members. "J.B. Strut," as the band was known locally, also opened shows for Johnny Winter, Omar and the Howlers, the Tailgators, Little Joe Blue, Big Twist and the Mellow Fellows, and others. After disbanding the group late in 1988 due to personnel changes and that old band nemesis, "artistic differences," Hill took a seven year sabbatical from playing live, preferring instead to concentrate on songwriting. By 1995, he once again started playing locally, first in a five piece band, then in The Steve Hill Trio. Today, Hill has been fortunate enough to be able to continue playing the music he wants to play with some of the best blues/rock players in the DFW area including Cadillac Johnson, Aram Doroff, Bobby Counts, Dirk Cordes, Randy DeHart, Michael J. Dohoney and others.
