The Steve Hillage Band

theatre

A highly skilled guitarist known for his fluid, effects-heavy playing, Essex musician Steve Hillage has collaborated with countless musicians and influenced several genres over the course of his lengthy career, particularly space rock, prog, ambient, and techno.

Initially associated with the Canterbury Scene during the late '60s and early '70s, Hillage played in groups such as Uriel and Khan before becoming a key member of psychedelic cult favorites Gong during the '70s. He launched his groundbreaking solo career with the ambitious 1975 prog rock suite Fish Rising before eschewing lyrics and rhythms for extended guitar- and synth-based meditations, helping to pave the way for ambient and new age, eventually co-founding the techno/trance group System 7 and collaborated extensively with techno pioneers such as The Orb; his distinctive guitar playing appearing on their classic 1992 single Blue Room.
