– Bob Margolin
Little G Weevil was born and raised in Budapest, Hungary. He started out as a drummer and began playing the guitar at 17. He was introduced and captivated by the music scene through listening to legendary musicians such as John Lee Hooker, Lightnin’ Hopkins, Albert Collins, B.B. King and Chuck Berry. Ever since he started his career he has focused solely on the music of the American South and this can be clearly heard in his compositions.
He established his own band in 1998. After years of touring mostly European countries with different bands he immigrated to the United States in 2004, living in Birmingham, AL, later downtown Memphis, TN. He has performed on numerous occasions in Beale Street’s famous blues clubs and has made his debut tours in the USA on his own and as a side man of soul blues singer Louisiana Mojo Queen. His first solo recordings were also produced in Memphis.
In 2007, Little G signed up with King Mojo Records out of Atlanta. A year later he left the label for Apic Records and released his very first solo album, the critically acclaimed “Southern Experience”. Album supporting tours took place in the US, Canada and Europe.
In 2009 he relocated to the Atlanta metro area where he has been based since.
His first worldwide recognition came with his second solo work “The Teaser” (2012). The album quickly climbed global blues music charts and the international music media highly praised it as well. It was ranked Top 10 best blues album of the year by Mojo, the elite England based publication.
In January 2013 Little G Weevil represented the Atlanta Blues Society at the Blues Foundation`s International Blues Challenge in the solo/duo category. He finished the competition in first place. He was also awarded as “Best Guitarist” in his category. The ceremony was held in the beautiful Orpheum Theatre in Memphis, TN. Following the success he has signed up with Vizztone Label Group.
On July 23, 2013 his third CD, first full length acoustic album “Moving” was released on Vizztone. The album was Top 3 “Best Album of the Year” (Mojo). Roots Music Worldwide Internet Radio Airplay Chart listed “Moving” in the top 10 for over two months in a row peaking #3 in October, 2013.
“…recalling the foot banging percussion of John Lee Hooker, the directness of Mississippi John Hurt and the string bending, slide acumen of so many greats. All this and he’s a white boy from Hungary. … any lover of the canonized, traditional old time blues cats will go nuts for this set. It’s loaded with so much heart and heat that you can’t help but stuff the ballot boxes for any blues awards he might be up for. Killer stuff.”
– Chris Spector, Midwest Record
The year of 2014 has brought even more recognition to G Weevil. He`s nominated for the highest accolade afforded musicians and songwriters in blues music the USA Blues Music Award as “Acoustic Artist of the Year”.
