Guitarist Lil' Stevie Silver has played sideman to some of Boston's hippest blues acts for the last twenty years. For this project he sheds his backup role and steps out on his own with his debut album Can't Get Enough. Featuring a who's who of the New England blues scene that includes sax man Doug James, trombonist Carl Querfurth, pianist Matt McCabe, drummer Mark Teixeira, bassist Jon Ross, and harmonica player Jim Jordan, Silver and company mightily roll & stroll through six originals and eight covers by the likes of Magic Sam, Eddie Cleanhead Vinson, Junior Parker, Otis Rush, Eddie Jones, Freddie King and Larry Williams. In doing so, Silver proves his songwriting mettle by weighing in with tunes just as valid and authentic as the top notch artists he covers. - The Metronome Magazine
