Stephen Hull Experience-Caldonia(Louis Jordan cover) live in Milwaukee, WI 4-2-22

Stephen Hull - 6/17/22 at the Red Rooster


What do you enjoy most about being a musician?

I get the honor to express myself and share it with people who love music. Blues to me is like breathing; I never get tired of breathing and I never get tired of blues

Which musician would you like to collaborate with?

I would absolutely love to work with my idol and blues legend Buddy Guy. Alternatively I adore H.E.R.!!! That would be a team up that I would have to pinch myself for!

If you were the next Opening Act, what would you do with $10,000?

It would immediately be used to upgrade the quality of my live shows and to complete my debut album. Lord knows it has been a long journey to get where I am and the money would help out significantly.
