Words, Music, Solidarity
Music is a game of survivors and Steve Sinnicks is nothing if not here to stay.
If you live in Southern Ontario, there is a good chance that you have seen Steve Sinnicks on stage. Steve plays pubs, clubs, campuses and festivals almost 365 days a year. Lefty, labour–side and not interested in who knows it, with the trio or solo, no two gigs are the same.
Original songs and acoustic shows … anywhere draft beer or solidarity can be found.

“Musical…Heartfelt…Entertaining” - Chart Magazine
“…in the tradition of Guthrie and Seeger… Hamilton’s Steve Sinnicks is also one of the best “labour-singers” in Canada… if Woody were alive today he would want to hear Steve Sinnicks live!”
