Lightnin’ Guy is the hardest working performer in the Belgian blues & roots scene. After Blue Blot & the Electric Kings, Belgium has a new top act that not only conquers the hearts of the blues-and rootslovers in Belgium, but also is on the brink of a breakthrough onto the European stages.

Since his first show in May 2008 he is on a crazy rollercoaster ride. During the first half-year on the road Lightnin’ Guy played more than 40 shows, toured through the Netherlands & Austria and recorded his debut album „Live from the Heart“. In 2009 he did over 70 shows & in 2010 he played 130 shows, played on the legendary Peer Blues, Kwadendamme Blues & Gouvy Jazz-Blues Festival.

It was for Parsifal Records an honour to sign Lightnin’ Guy. We first released his debut album on our Blue Sting label.

Today Lightnin’ Guy is considered a real hot live sensation and continues to conquer the hearts of the blues & roots lovers in Belgium & Holland. Nowadays he plays the biggest festivals and already shared the same bill as John Fogerty, Jeff Beck, Steve Winwood, John Mayall , Joe Bonamassa, Derek Trucks, ... Lightnin’ Guy also opened concerts for The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Joe Louis Walker, Canned Heat, Eddie C. Campbell, Sherman Robertson, Dr. Feelgood, The Nighthawks, Ian Siegal …

As his slide & harpstyle are very emotional, unique & authentic, a Lightnin’ Guy show is always very energetic. As he says:“ In a world of plastic & virtuality, people want real things“. A Lightnin’ Guy show is all about energy and total surrender to the audience. This makes him a real crowd pleaser. By playing in the ‘Louisiana swamp & Chicago slide & harp’-tradition, he always succeeds in making everybody dance and sing along to his tight, groovy, honest riffs & licks. Lightnin' Guy is not only an excellent musician & singer, but also an all-round entertainer. It does not matter for whom he plays nor where, people always start shaking their asses and having a mighty good time, when Lightnin’ Guy is on stage.
