Guitarist, singer, songwriter Little G Weevil (born July 6, 1977) is one of the most unique entertainers on the scene today. His approach to the American Roots and Blues Music makes him one of a kind. This high energy and very laid back performer sings his heart out, picks his guitar like he just got "struck by lightning" and tells his real life stories in a way that is really hard to forget. At the age of 35 he already has performed in fourteen countries on three continents, occasionally sharing the stage with his musical icons.
Little G Weevil started out as a drummer and began playing the guitar at 17. He was introduced and captivated by the music scene through listening to legendary musicians such as John Lee Hooker, Lightnin' Hopkins, Albert Collins, B.B. King and Chuck Berry.
“John Lee Hooker and his blues was for me, like my grandfather and the tales he use to tell. When I first heard the songs Hobo Blues and Never Get Out of These Blues Alive, I thought to myself, God, I am part of this, I feel it, I belong to this.”
Ever since he started his career he has focused solely on the music of the American South and this can be clearly heard in his compositions. Although he has never had formal guitar or vocal lessons he now performs worldwide.
He established his own band in 1998. With his deep powerful voice and his ability to become one with his guitar, attention focused upon Little G. very early in his career. After years of touring mostly European countries he released his first single (Chump Change) in 2001 and his first album (One) with his European band Pure Blues in 2004 under the EU based label D&B.
In the same year he moved to Memphis, TN where he received a long-term contract on the legendary Beale Street.
He has performed on numerous occasions in Beale Street's famous Blues clubs and has made his debut tours in the USA on his own or as a side man of Soul Blues singer Louisiana Mojo Queen.
His first solo recordings were also produced in Memphis in 2005.
In 2007, Little G signed up with the Atlanta, GA based King Mojo Records. A year later he left the label for Apic Records and released his very first solo album, the critically acclaimed "Southern Experience". Album supporting tours took place in the USA, Canada, England, Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Serbia Montenegro, Slovak Republic, Finland, Croatia, Slovenia, Italy and Greece with outstanding success.
" I`m always happy to take my music on the road. I enjoy performing and being in the company of wonderful people. I think you can tell. During my travels i had the pleasure to share the stage with many outstanding players, too. I opened up for the Neville Brothers and Denise LaSalle in Memphis, for Terry Evans and Johnny Winter in Budapest, Hungary. Johnny even signed my guitar and went out of his way to say a few words to me. I got to play a good long set with Anson Funderburgh and Sam Myers. I jammed with the cool Larry Garner at a festival. My guitar kind of gave up in the middle of the song. He laughed and handed over his and carried on singing. And there are the UK`s premier Blues guys Ian Siegal and Matt Schofield. Ian Siegal and i played a lot together. He is a real Blues man..."
"...Hubert Sumlin, Honeyboy Edwards, Pinetop Perkins, Bob Margolin, Willie Big Eye Smith, Bobby Rush, Wille King, Gatemouth Brown, Charlie Musselwhite are the greats i have met down South in Mississippi and Alabama. Lonnie Shields and Big Jack Johnson i backed at the King Biscuit Festival`s main stage in 2005. I`m not name dropping but these are unforgettable moments i`m very proud of. Sadly, some of these musicians are no longer with us. I feel like it`s the part of my job to carry on their legacies, talk about my personal experiences with them. They made history that the world must know."
In 2009 Little G Weevil relocated to Kennesaw, GA where he has been based ever since.
His second solo work "The Teaser" was released in December 10, 2011. Only three weeks after the album reaches #2 on APD`s Global Radio Indicator Chart and it shines silver and gold on several other charts as well. Blues and general music media with over 35 publications worldwide reviews the album and by the end of the year it makes it to the Top 10 Best Blues Album of the year by Mojo Magazine.
