“Lester combines a Blues base and a sense of Jazz improvisation and a spiritual quality to his music. It’s very soulful and connects on the dance floor and to the heart.” Holger Petersen, Host, Saturday Night Blues, CBC Radio
Soulful acoustic and electric Folk, Blues and Roots music; like a cool blue stream flowing over luxurious tones, smooth shapeshifting sound…this is the music of Lester Quitzau. With understated mastery and grace, the Juno Award winning musician explores the space between the notes, as much as the notes themselves. Lester Quitzau’s music goes many places… rockin' slow and easy front porch style, then on down a long winding road, covering many a mile, with heart and soul at the wheel.
"Lester Quitzau rattles and reverberates the cornerstones of folk, jazz, blues and rock…” (FFWD magazine).
