The song is everything. The attitude is not. ~ SG Sinnicks
Steve “S.G.” Sinnicks began playing drums at 11 and at 15 began to play the pubs with everyone from local artists to Canadian legend Stompin’ Tom Connors. While he still occasionally fills in on the skins, he is now known across Canada and in the U.S. as singer and songwriter in the vein of Nick Lowe, Billy Bragg or John K Sampson with a folkie background and a history of dissent.
