Guitarist, producer and bandleader Steve Freund,
praised by Rolling Stone for his
"masterful, no-nonsense guitar work" has relocated to the West Coast
following 18 years as one of Chicago's most respected musicians.
In 1978, he became Sunnyland Slim's main guitarist, playing just about every gig with the piano legend until the time of his death. Freund became the consummate piano accompanist working with Pinetop Perkins, Jimmy Walker, Henry Gray, Erwin Helfer, David Maxwell and many more.
Steve is an official endorsee of Seymour Duncan. He is also an official endorsee of Epiphone guitars and GHS Strings. Steve uses and endorses Bobby Lee's Les Paul Screwless Pickguards.
