Steve Kimock Crazy Tour: Kimock Designs New Guitar

Steve Kimock Crazy Engine Hits The Road This Fall
Kimock To Join The Chris Berry Trio For Select Dates

Crazy Engine by Savage
Steve Kimock is a busy guy. In between a seemingly endless touring schedule, Kimock has somehow managed to design an electric guitar with legendary guitar-smith Scott Walker, compose a score to a 1920's silent film, plan for a three-show stint with world music guru Chris Berry and still muster enough strength to cross the country with the Crazy Engine.

Starting in 2007, Scott Walker and Steve Kimock began discussing the ergonomics of a perfect guitar. How it sits in the lap, how it hangs on the shoulder, how the strings present themselves, etc. The guitar player and craftsman came up with a design that offers both a unique look and sound.

As the New York Guitar Festival celebrates its 10th anniversary this January, a series of special shows at Manhattan's Merkin Concert Hall on Thursday nights will showcase an artist or ensemble scoring an early classic film. On January 21, the festival will present Kimock playing to Buster Keaton's classic silent film Cops. That same night, Bon Iver's Justin Vernon will provide the sonic backdrop to Charlie Chaplin's The Gold Rush.

As an artist known to bring together many genres, Kimock will play a string of dates in September with the Chris Berry Trio. The Trio will also feature Michael Kang (The String Cheese Incident) and drum and bass from the Brazilian Girls.
