DREAMSTEALER (Arno Guveau) was a regular busker on the London Underground.
These proved to be formative years as it was during this time that he developed his own style, which later grew into “Funky Blues“.
DREAMSTEALER’s style is a cross between J.J. Cale, Tony Joe White and Neil Young. His first solo album ‘Son of the Big Smoke’, based on his journey from a small town in Holland trying to make it to London to fulfil his musical ambition, has just been recorded and will be released in September 2012. With this album Guveau wants to carry on from and continue with his masters’ musical style. This resulted in the recording, playing all instruments and producing of all songs by himself in Arno’s home studio in Finchley, North London.
As a producer/mixer Arno worked with the likes of Manfred Mann, Bob Weston (ex Fleetwood Mac), Stevie Ann, Louise Latham and many more artists. A prodigious songwriter, he is inspired by the works of Neil Young, J.J. Cale, The Beatles, Tony Joe White, Nick Drake, Talk Talk and Paul Simon.
Guveau was 21 years old when he started touring as a young ambitious drummer with blues legends Little Tony and Greyhound Levi, and performing with the likes of Champion Jack Dupree, Luther Johnston, Louisiana Red and Arthur Conley (Sweet Soul Music). As a songwriter he was active with bands such as Into Seven, Chill Out and The Dreamstealers, the latter with whom he gained international acclaim by performing at the famous Ollin Kan/Mundial Festival in Mexico City in 2007.
