Bio

Calgary musician Neil Speers at the Bridgeland Market
Calgary musician Neil Speers at the Bridgeland Market

Born in Calgary, AB and moved back 7 or 8 times now. I’ve been a jazz fan since very young thanks to my mother, and a blues fan ever since I started learning fingerstyle guitar. Of course, along the way I’ve been in bands, a solo guitarist/singer/songwriter, part of duos and trios, and more.

I’ve been very busy releasing lots of music lately, with the goal I started November of 2020 to record 60 songs. I know it’s a little behind Prince who did 90 but since I’m doing it myself….

As a musician, I’ve played in festivals, pubs, restaurants and cafes; as well as playing corporate events and parties. If requested I can certainly line up a top-notch band to join me or work as a solo musician.
