Eugene 'Hideaway' Bridges

Born in 1963, son of the blues guitarist Hideaway Slim, Eugene is the fourth child of five. His mother was from the Bullock family (the same as Anna Mae Bullock better known as Tina Turner) and Eugene claims he got his guitar skills from the Bridges side and his voice from the Bullocks. 

After four CDs recorded with a full band, and for his self titled release Eugene ‘Hideaway ‘ Bridges, he went into the studio with friends and fellow musicians, met on the road. WA's Lucky Oceans, co-founder of the Western Swing band Asleep at the Wheel and currently in the Zydecats, plays Pedal Steel on three tracks and Texan legend Ray Wylie Hubbard lays down some fine Slide Guitar on I Can’t Wait. This CD was nominate for two 2008 US Blues Music Awards.

March 2009 saw Eugene in San Antonio to fulfill his fans wishes for a Live CD. With the line up of Bobby Baranowski - Drums, Eric King - Bass, David Webb - Keys, Seth Kibel - Sax and Justine Miller – Trumpet, you have the real deal. Live in San Antonio was nominated for a 2011 Blues Music Award in the Soul Blues Album Category and Eugene was also nominated for Soul Blues Artist.

Next came ‘Rock and a Hard Place’ featuring Eugene's big band; the horns again led and arranged by long time collaborator and maestro Seth Kibel. Also featured are David Webb on Keyboards, Hammond B3, Piano & Wurlitzer; Lloyd Maines on Pedal Steel; Eric ‘Lollipop’ King on Bass Guitar; Calep Emphrey on Drums, Seth Kibel on Alto, Tenor, Baritone Saxophones & Flute; Shane Pitsch on Trumpet And Mark V Gonzales on Trombone.
