On the road and in the studio, The Steel Wheels are tapping into Americana traditions and creating fresh-sounding acoustic fervor.  The band’s new album Lay Down Lay Low succeeds in capturing the fire-in-the-belly spirit of the band’s mesmerizing live shows wile fine-tuning carefully crafted lyrical stories that surprise the ear and linger in the heart.  Acoustic instrumentation escorts the listener into a slow dance or a full-throttle ride, while lead vocals from Trent Wagler soar and find the perfect complement in supporting vocals from mandolin player Jay Lapp, with bass player Brian Dickel and fiddler Eric Brubaker joining for soul-thrilling harmonies. “Americana music at its very best!” said Larry Groce of Mountain Stage visit their website:http://www.thesteelwheels.com/

Watch for a new date… last night’s downpour flooded the Listening Room! What do you get when you cross conservatory-trained musicians with raucous bluegrass and the mega-hits of the 80s? LOVE CANON (intentionally spelled with one “N”) Think Rocky IV, Cyndi Lauper, Whitesnake and Dire Straits played with banjo, mandolin and high lonesome vocals. It’ll make ya laugh, it’ll make you dance, it’ll “blind you with science!” Love Canon is guitarist / singer Jesse Harper (of acoustic supergroup Old School Freight Train), bassist Darrell Muller and fiddler Nate Leath (also of OSFT), Adam Larrabee (banjo virtuoso), and Andy Thacker (bluegrass mandolin phenom).
