Performing solo as a singer/songwriter, Hardwire Speers creates a mix of blues and roots mixed with R&B and light jazz - as well as contemporary instrumental acoustic guitar compositions. Neil (aka Hardwire) won an award for compositions he contributed to a video (Best Original Soundtrack) in 2008 which also won Best Film at the GiGi awards. He also has a full length album and two EP's available for purchase. Neil has also performed across Canada from Vancouver to New Brunswick and in several festivals.
When performing in a band context, Hardwire Speers Band rocks out with heavy blues and rock & roll, along with smokey R&B. They are working on their first full-band album now.
