Growing up in rural North Carolina, Dwight found music to be his refuge early.  From Hendrix to Motown and who was on Stax - to Brubeck, Miles, and Trane - and his Dad's morning Gospel songs on AM Radio - Dwight absorbed ALL of it.

Fast forward to Houston, Texas - and a thriving music scene - the versatile Mr. Sills found himself on call for a variety of genres.  He had already learned cello, drums and bass - finally settling on guitar - and he was serene in his knowledge that his passion and proficiency would take him on a pretty cool journey.

He was right.  Dwight Sills has worked with some of the most amazing names in the business.  We could do a shortened list of the alphabet: Anita Baker, Babyface, Brenda Russell, Everette Harp, George Duke, Kirk Whalum, Rick Braun, Richard Elliott, Russell Ferrante, TLC, Wayne Henderson and Wilton Felder.  A small sampling!

Part rocker, part Jazz fusionist, with heavy doses of Soul and a love for the masters, Dwight Sills forged his path with a self-titled CD in 1990.  Steady working ever since. 

Let's find out how the Summer of 2012 is working out for one of the HOTTEST (sorry :) guitarists that you'll ever hear!
