Streetheart Bio


2019 saw the return of Streetheart to playing live shows after a two year hiatus to mark and honour the passing of lead vocalist Kenny Shields in 2017.

Original founding members Daryl Gutheil and Ken “Spider” Sinnaeve along with long time Streetheart alumnus Jeff Neill were joined by Paul McNair (Harlequin) on lead vocals to reignite the songs and legacy of one of Canada’s most iconic R&R bands.

Since the band’s inception in 1977, Streetheart has always prided itself in presenting their music with the highest level of skill, energy and execution and the new lineup has delivered on their promise to continue that long tradition of musical excellence. The band has received rave reviews show after show throughout 2019 and the band today is as strong musically as it ever has been. Paul McNair has become a fan favourite; his engaging onstage persona, world class vocals and respect for the legacy of Streetheart endearing him to even the most hardcore of Streetheart fans.

With a list of chart topping hits that includes Action, Under My Thumb, Here Comes The Night, Hollywood, Tin Soldier, What Kind Of Love Is This and Look In Your Eyes, along with the most requested tracks from their catalogue of platinum albums, Streetheart’s ability to deliver top quality, highly entertaining shows to their audiences night after night is virtually guaranteed.  

Streetheart has once again taken it’s place amongst the very best rock acts in the country and you can expect great things ahead from Streetheart as the band continues it’s musical journey forward into the future.
