Steve Blaze, guitarist and founding member of the million-selling rock band Lillian Axe, is taking some big steps forward in his relentless pursuit to establish the group’s rightful place in hard rock history. With an impressive schedule of tour dates that includes a return to the Monsters Of Rock Cruise in 2022 and a new album and anthology in the works, Lillian Axe is poised to add to their already significant list of accomplishments and keep doing what they do best: delivering dramatic rock ‘n roll to the masses.

 

Blaze, whom Guitar Player Magazine listed as “one of the most underrated guitarists in the world,” leads the charge alongside fellow axe-slinger Sam Poitevent (a member since 1999) and original bassist Michael Maxx. Vocalist Brent Graham, after working with Steve Blaze in other projects, first took centerstage when Lillian Axe was featured in the hit NBC show “Constantine” in 2015. Former Pretty Boy Floyd drummer Wayne Stokely provides the groove which supports the blistering guitar work and Graham’s powerful pipes.

 

The forthcoming album “From Womb To Tomb” is approximately halfway completed, and negotiations are underway to reissue the band’s entire back catalog (13 total releases) in conjunction with the new release. Also to be released in March 2022 is a three disc anthology entitled “Psalms for Eternity,” a time capsule of the bands prestigious career.

 

Lillian Axe gained international recognition with albums on MCA Records and IRS Records in the late 80’s and early 90’s. They have toured with/opened for Alice Cooper, Judas Priest, Accept and many others, as well as rocking hundreds of thousands of fans worldwide at major festivals such as Sweden Rock, Firefest, and Rocklahoma. Though the music has evolved and progressed in the decades since, the band still treats their audiences to MTV singles like “Dream Of A Lifetime,” “Show A Little Love,” and their version of the Badfinger classic “No Matter What.”

 

In 2010, they became the first-ever hard rock act inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall Of Fame. In September 2021, Steve Blaze will also be inducted for his individual accomplishments, which include multiple TV and film soundtracks, sessions for major artists, and nine years as guitarist for legendary rockers Angel. Lillian Axe was awarded the Jackson Indie Music Ikon Award for their musical contribution to the Mississippi music scene for the last 30 years.
