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 Little G. started his Blues career he has focused solely on the Southern Blues and this can be clearly heard in his music. Altough he has never had formal guitar or vocal lessons he now sings and plays the blues worldwide.
He has developed a style that he calls Apple Picker Music. 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 band Pure Blues in 2004 under the EU based label D&B. In the same year he relocated to Memphis, TN, USA where he became the very first european blues musician (born in Budapest, Hungary) to receive 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 Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi and Arkansas. His first solo recordings were also produced in Memphis in 2005. His very first solo album Southern Experience was released in March 2008 featuring the US Blues Music Award winner Billy Gibson and former Albert King keyboardist Charlie Wood. During his career he has had the honor to play with many well known musicians such as: Anson Funderburgh, Sam Myers, Larry Garner, Big Jack Johnson, Lonnie Shields, Shemekia Copeland, E. G. Kight, Sharrie Williams, Willie King... and has toured with Billy Gibson and the UK’s top bluesman Ian Siegal. He has opened up for the likes of: Johnny Winter, The Holmes Brothers, Terry Evans, C.
