The Steepwater Band Headlines House of Blues on June 7
For the second year in a row TSB gathers their friends into Downtown Chicago during Blues Festival weekend for an evening of song. In fact, this year the band has named the event “ILLICANA – A Gala of Rock n’ Roll Music”.The play on “Illinois and Americana” can only suggest that joining TSB on stage that night will be other great bands from the Land of Lincoln. From Bloomington the great Magic Box, featuring Ed & Scott from Backyard Tire Fire, will kick the concert off. Their big catchy riffs and folk-driven rock will amaze your eyes and ears! On second are the astounding Miles Nielsen & The Rusted Hearts, from Rockford. Miles brings his brand of songs, a dynamic mix of pop music harmonies, Kentucky-whiskey and jangly telecasters to this show, making it one to be marked on the calendars of all music lovers far and wide.
Tickets for this event go on-sale Wednesday May 8 at 10am (CST), via the HOB website for $12. Click here.

Big Away and Home Games
This upcoming leg of TSB’s High and Humble Tour includes some rather choice shows. All of them actually, but we can’t mention them all here. So we’d like to focus on a few… one, a four night stand in the Florida Keys, and the other a rare two set show in Chicago.
On March 28th through the 31st the legendary Hog’s Breath Saloon, in the Florida Keys, hosts four nights of TSB music. It’s a perfect early spring getaway for all of our northern (or anywhere) fans looking to escape and enjoy some summer weather with a little rock n roll. The band would really love to see a bunch of their fans and friends join them and start a yearly tradition in the Keys.
Then on Saturday, April 20th the band celebrates “4/20” with a rare “an evening with” Chicago show, at the intimate venue Ace Bar, located in-between Ashland & Southport on Fullerton Ave. Tickets for this show go on sale this Saturday, February 2nd at 12pm (CST). The show starts at 10pm and TSB will deliver 2 sets of their brand of dirty rock n roll. So be sure to grab your tickets now as this show will sell-out, and only a few of you will be able to welcome TSB back home.
We hope to see a lot of you out at these and the rest of the shows on the schedule, which you can get the details here at steepwater.com. Cheers!
2012 Year in Review
We here at TSB have had an incredible 2012. We can't thank you all enough for another year of support and love as we enter 2013. Here are some of the highlights of the past year...
In January Jeff, Tod & Joe were joined frequnetly on stage Mr. Eric Saylors on guitar, and by March his high energy personality and tasty playing became an official memeber of the band, adding to the already huge TSB sound.
Shortly after that, TSB signed with a the agency Interpid Artists International out of Charlotte, NC. The company with a deep roster and long history helped bring the band 135 shows, all across the country... TSB's busiest year yet.
Two major motion pictures used TSB music: The Five-Year Engagement featured "Baby, You're On Your Own" & One For the Money featured "Collision." Both from the Revelation Sunday record.
Now as we've entered 2013 the band gears up for more touring, and touring and touring. The Steepwater Band are sure to get back to everywhere they hit up in the past year, and are excited to venture to new cities and towns so folks all over can experience the LIVE TSB sound!

High & Humble Tour Heads West
The Steepwater Band is pleased to announce a Western/Southern U.S tour! The ambitious journey begins late summer in Colorado Springs, winds around to the Snowy Range Music Festival in Laramie, Wyoming, snaking back through Colorado and Oklahoma. The tour then heads south with dates in Texas, Mississippi, Memphis, Nashville and culminates back home in the Midwest with shows in Iowa, Indiana and Illinois – details are listed below. The tour in the west marks first-ever gigs in Colorado and Wyoming and both the band and their fans in the west anticipating this maiden voyage.
The band is eager to embark on an extended tour in the States. Massey comments “I'm really looking forward to it. We haven't performed this many shows consecutively without a break since Europe. The band is firing on all cylinders at the moment so it’s good time to come see us!” Joe Winters adds “As usual, we play a different show every night! Some nights the set is more song oriented, some nights we feel like playing more long jams, and some nights we might lean heavier on the blues to get us through. It's all about staying in the moment...”

Three plus One equals Four
~ Making the TSB Live Sound Even Bigger
With great delight, The Steepwater Band would like to welcome touring guitarist Eric Saylors to the family. Alongside original members Jeff Massey: Guitar/Vocals, Tod Bowers: Bass, and Joe Winters: Drums; Eric will join the band on stage as 2nd Guitar/Backing Vocals for all 2012 tour dates and beyond, adding to the already huge live sound the band has become identified with. Best known for his time with the Indianapolis-based rock group Healing Sixes, Eric has worked with such music luminaries as drummer Jason Bonham, and producer Kevin Shirley. He brings a great sense of tone and taste to the current TSB live repertoire, as the band actively turns the page on the next chapter of their ever-evolving sound.
With Eric onboard the tour full-time beginning March 1st, the final performance (indefinitely) by the just original, 3-piece line-up of the band will be FRIDAY FEBRUARY 24, at MARTYRS’ in their hometown of Chicago, IL. We hope you can join us to celebrate the end of an era, and the beginning of a new one.
Joining a Family...
We here at The Steepwater Band are happy to announce that the group has been added to the Intrepid Artists International roster.
Founded in 1994, in Charlotte, North Carolina, by Rick Booth, Intrepid has represented some of the very finest musicians in the world and have become known throughout the industry as an agency that can be counted on for not only delivering great music but also for honesty, integrity, service and reliability. Some of the other artists they currently represent are Ana Popovic, Lil’ Ed & The Blues Imperials, Nick Moss, Eric Sardinas, Tishamingo, Joe Louis Walker, Walter Trout, and Dana Fuchs.
The guys couldn't be more excited to become part of the Intrepid family and for the year ahead. Everyone, everywhere keep your eyes peeled for TSB Tours near you!
TV & Movies
In early November 2011 the guys stopped by The Alley Recording studios in Valparaiso, IN and taped an episode of LIVE AT THE ALLEY. The inteviews and performances of High and Humble and Remember the Taker (from Clava) first aired on PBS on January 30, but if you missed it you can catch it here...
Did anyone see One For the Money, starring Katherine Heigl, yet? Our tune, Collision, from Revelation Sunday is cranking loud during one the movie's big action scenes. It opened #3 at the box office! dig it.
2011 ~ A Year in Review & A Look Ahead
Another year comes to an end. Wow it went by fast! We all can’t thank you enough for all the love and support you gave TSB during 2011. Here’s a few of the finer moments from the year…
In late winter TSB headed into Clava Studios, on the south-side of Chicago, and started recording what would become their 5th Studio LP. A quick and focused session with Co-Producer/Engineer Colin Sipos brought the band to a new level with both their songwriting and sonic experimentation. The result: “CLAVA” was released in August to glowing reviews by fans and critics alike. To celebrate the release TSB hosted TWO nearly sold-out shows at the Beat Kitchen in Chicago where they played the new album in its entirety.
TSB headed to Spain in October for a 17 show run, their most ambitious tour of Espana yet. They criss-crossed all over, hitting many new cities… Burgos, Cangas de Morrazos, Elda… and some old staples… Madrid, Bilbao, and Barcelona. They even headlined a festival on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean! It was an amazing journey. (Click here for some sweet videos from the tour)
During the year TSB also had the pleasure of playing with some great bands: The New York Dolls, Buffalo Killers, Backyard Tire Fire, Lions of Hazelwood, Tesla, Miles Nielsen, Sleepy Sun, Mojo Radio, Candy Golde, Los Lonely Boys, Hollus, Johnny Winter and the Healing Sixes just to name a few!
As 2012 rolls in the guys are excited and ready for the New Year. Some great things are already in motion: TSB with Chicago Farmer & Magic Box at Martyrs in February; a March trip to SXSW in Austin, TX; two song placements in big studio movies, the first being “One for the Money” released this January and starring Katherine Heigl (stayed tuned for more info on the 2nd flick).
We’d like to thank you again for another great year and we’ll see you in 2012!
Special Holiday Benefit Concert
As the weather turns colder and the holiday season approaches its nice to turn your attention to those who are less fortunate. Shelter, a hot meal, or a warm jacket can make all the difference in someone's life. Jeff, Joe and myself are happy to be helping some with the WARM, SAFE AND SOUND Benefit Concert at LINCOLN HALL on THURSDAY, DECEMBER 1. The show, in conjunction with the Cornerstone Community Outreach program, can help people in a time of need. The CCO is a non-profit organization, that was created in 1989 to raise the quality of life for low-income residents of the United States and the rest of the world through social, educational and economic development programs that include: development & preservation of decent & affordable housing for the poor, job training & creation, educational & social programs, and feeding & sheltering the homeless. So please join us for an amazing night of rock n roll music for a great cause. And if you can't make the show you can always donate online (click here).

Jambase calls CLAVA:
"One of best Rock Albums of 2011"
Dig a little review of TSB's new album via Mr. Dennis Cook... "Long one of the under-sung gems in American blues-rock, Chicago’s The Steepwater Band will release Clava, their best long-player to date on August 16. We’ve been crawling inside the advance they sent JamBase and keep finding new things we really dig with each spin. Nothing’s too gussied up so the honest grit and sweat of rock ‘n’ roll comes through loud and clear, and behind everything a crossroads right blues soul howls. Clava continues the group’s evolution by simply refining every promising aspect this taut trio has exhibited in the past (some earlier praise for TSB here and here for reference). If you’re charged up by what The Black Keys or Black Crowes are putting down lately, there’s little doubt Clava will flip your wig big time."
First Glimpse of CLAVA track listing...
The Steepwater Band’s forthcoming studio release, “CLAVA”
(pronounced CLAY-va) finds the band hitting their most creative and focused
point of their career. The new record was recorded this past March on the
South Side of Chicago at the studio of the same name. Clava was produced by the trio
along with Colin Sipos, a young, up-and-coming producer/engineer who has
worked with the critically acclaimed Iron & Wine and Califone. The ten new
songs feature some of their most blues-infused, heavy and psychedelic
tunes to date.
1. Remember The Taker
3. Come On Down
4. Love Never Ends
5. Bury My Burden Deep
6. High And Humble
7. Won't Be Long For Now
8. Out On Love
9. Off The Rails
10. Meet Me In The Aftermath

Studio Session For New LP Wrapped Up
Earlier this month Jeff, Joe and myself headed to the south-side of Chicago and set-up camp for two weeks at Clava Studios to record a new full-length album, our follow-up to 2008's "Grace and Melody." The studio has been the home to our new songs, and we've been capturing the tunes & vibes to tape with engineer Colin Sipos, who is co-producing the record along with the band. I have to say that I believe its our best material to date, and we're getting some freakingly-amazing sounds to delight your ears. We'll be sure to keep you posted on the developments as they arise, but it feels like a mid-summer release.
Hope to see ya soon.

Return to the Double Door
Two of Illinois' most celebrated roots-rock outfits, Backyard Tire Fire & The Steepwater Band, team-up for a special concert at Chicago's Double Door. Both of these bands carry the torch for traditional Rock n’ Roll, all-the-while each group stamping their unique Midwestern-vibe on “the song.” Also appearing are another great Chicago act (also carrying the torch in a big way) our dear, dear friends Hollus.

After a few weeks off your TSB is getting ready to fire-up the van again and get on the road. We've have been busy writing and rehearsing songs for the next studio album. The sessions are slated to start in March, at Clava studios here in Chicago. The shows begin Friday (02.11) as the band travels to Fort Wayne, Indiana for a show at Mookie's with the powerful, bluesy two-piece Left Lane Cruiser. Influenced by Mississippi Hill country blues, and a whole lotta whiskey, Left Lane Cruiser has a brand new album coming out soon on Alive Records. Chicago is next on the list...a great show on Saturday (02.12) with the mighty Truth & Salvage Co. at one of the city's finest venues, Schubas. Truth & Salvage is Americana music at its finest, who had their debut album produced by Chris Robinson of the Black Crowes.

After a busy and successful year, your TSB is going to take a little break from the road for the next 5 weeks. The guys are going to re-charge their batteries a bit, but they also are beginning to write and work on the songs that will shape the next studio album, with plans to record this spring, here in Chicago.
Once February kicks off Jeff, Tod and Joe wipe the sleep from their eyes and start a busy Winter/Spring Tour. Be sure to check the Tour Schedule and mark your calendar if the show rolls into your town.
A Year in Review
As this year winds down to its last few days we here at The Steepwater Band would like to thank you for another great year! Lets take a look back on a few of the sweeter moments…
2010 started off fast for the guys as in February the guys released the CD single "The Stars Look Good Tonight" and then quickly headed out on the road with Gov't Mule for two weeks. Jeff and Tod sat in with Warren and the guys on the final night, on a raging version of Cream's "Politician" (check out a video). A few weeks later TSB kicked off their tour with the amazing Marc Ford (as his band too) with a sold-out show at the House of Blues Backporch Stage in Chicago. The 12 show MFF & TSB tour stretched overseas to Spain, packed every house including sell-out shows in Barcelona, Madrid, and A Coruña (watch footage from Zaragoza). At the end of the run Jeff, Tod & Joe embarked on another 3 week tour in Europe taking TSB to Germany, France, Belgium, and the U.K. for the first time.
Once back home in the States the band headlined the legendary Chicago rock club Double Door in May. Performing TSB’s last 2 albums “Revelation Sunday” and “Grace & Melody” back to back in their entirety to a packed house. The continuing summer was a busy time as they toured relentlessly throughout the mid-west and east-coast.
The autumn season was a highlight as “The Stars Look Good Tonight” entered the Triple A radio charts and climbed with each and every passing week. Then on October 19 Diamond Day Records released the band’s first live album. “The Steepwater Band: Live at the Double Door” was recorded back in May at the aforementioned show. The disc has wowed listeners and received critical acclaim since its release, sighting its big sound and the separated mix for capturing the true sound of this trio. In support of this record the band hit the road hard, playing to thousands of fans in Texas, Indiana, Kentucky, Illinois, Missouri, Oklahoma, Wisconsin and Iowa. A traffic accident that totaled the TSB Van & Trailer couldn’t even derail the guys long (it wasn’t our fault, we swear)! Also, almost forgot to mention that in the middle of all that we shot a music video for the latest single (dig it here).
Now 2010 is coming to close in a big way, at the House of Blues Chicago. On New Year’s Eve your TSB kicks off the show, followed by the North Mississippi All-Stars and Robert Randolph. Let’s send this great year off and greet a new, and prosperous one together (hint, hint: get your tickets).
Jeff, Tod & Joe are looking forward to what 2011 brings. They plan on entering the studio in the upcoming months, with hope to release the follow-up to “Grace and Melody” by the Fall. It should be another exciting year in the Steepwater Band world, and in yours too. Thanks again for the amazing support. Love music.

Dig it ~ A Sunday Show for a Great Cause
The Steepwater Band will be performing at a benefit show for Benjamin Gonzalez on Sunday, July 11 at 3 pm at Crossroads Tavern and Eatery in Wood Dale IL.
At just 18 months old, Benjamin Gonzalez was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (A.L.L.). It is a cancer of the white blood cells, the cells in the body that normally fight infections. He spent the next 3 1/2 years in treatment at the Ronald McDonald’s Children’s Hospital at Loyola. With his parents happy and Benjamin in remission, he finished treatment in May of 2009. Unfortunately he relapsed March 2010, losing his eye sight as an effect of this disease. Now he must undergo a live-saving bone marrow transplant. This fundraiser will help off-set the family's rising medical bills.
The show requestes a $10 donation at the door and also features the music of Steve Barnes and Plain Ole Delicious. Donations for this great cause can also be made to the First National Bank of Brookfield, 9136 Washington Ave, Brookfield, IL 60513 – 708.485.2770.

The Steepwater Band & Marc Ford
to Tour in Concert
~ with Dates in the Midwest and Spain
In late winter 2010, the Chicago-based trio hops over the pond for six-week European Tour - a first in the history of the band. It kicks off with a bang as Marc Ford joins The Steepwater Band on the Spanish leg of the tour. Marc’s work with the Black Crowes, Ben Harper, and Booker T has made him one of the most celebrated guitarists of his generation.
Recently, The Steepwater Band commissioned Ford to produce their latest release, Grace and Melody – which met with critical acclaim. The flow of mutual admiration and respect during that studio session created a bond between the musicians and talk of a collaborative tour was on the horizon. The ten-city tour begins in Bilbao and stretches across Spain’s beautiful landscape to Madrid, Gijon and Barcelona (just to name a few). Each show will feature a TSB set to get the evening rolling. After the opening sets, Ford will join the band. Together they will perform songs from his solo releases as well as songs from the Steepwater catalog. These evenings of music are bound to astonish and inspire fans.
For the folks in the United States who cannot make the Spain shows, you are in luck. The Steepwater Band & Marc Ford will be playing two Midwest shows to kick-off the tour before flying over to España. The House of Blues’ funky Back Porch Stage will be the site in TSB’s home town of Chicago on Saturday, February 20. Tickets for this show go on-sale December 11, at 10 a.m. via Live Nation. Grab your tickets now, as this show is bound to sell-out. On Sunday, February 21, TSB & Marc will travel north to Wisconsin for an intimate show at the fabulous Green Room in Sheboygan. Tickets for this show go on sale December 14 via the Green Room’s website.
After Steepwater & Ford rip through Spain, TSB continues on their own to debut in many cities across Europe. This month long trip will see them playing from London to Prague and many other historical places. *As of December 8, 2009 - some markets/venues are currently pending, be sure to check back to www.steepwater.com in the coming weeks for a full schedule.
Once The Steepwater Band returns from this epic tour, they begin work on their next chapter - stay tuned.

Read what folks are saying about "Grace and Melody"...
Everything about GRACE AND MELODY has the feel of natural born rockers determined to get everyone's rocks off. Producer Marc Ford does clean, endlessly effective work here, bringing his years of experience with The Black Crowes and others, allowing individual elements to shine – a groin throbbing bass run, the blue water purr of electric slide. This is the abounding whomp of a band that's always been very good, teetering on the edge of greatness. And by album's end I'd be surprised if you weren't rooting for them to topple all the way into full blown glory.
~ Dennis Cook | Jambase.com
Crackling with gritty energy and featuring strikingly direct lyrics, Grace And Melody demonstrates that Steepwater Band is a group with a considerable amount of depth and nuance…most notably the intriguing twin-guitar romp through the 13+ minute, "Waiting To Be Offended," which is vibrant yet clutter-free. Grace And Melody is certainly worth diving into.
~ Rob Turner | Hittin' The Note Magazine
Classic influences but no nostalgia...these guys are fresher than most of what gets passed off as 'new' these days. I've always been able to hear the goodness at the heart of The Steepwater Band. All the nuance of the recording, performance and songwriting can be found on Grace and Melody. They're in their finest form yet.
~ Richard Milne | WXRT Radio, Chicago
Returning to House of Blues,
opening for guitar legend JOE PERRY!
Dig it! Your TSB has just been added to the JOE PERRY PROJECT show, featuring the Aerosmith guitarist, at the House of Blues, November 18th in Chicago! Aerosmith cancelled its 2009 tour, leaving Perry with the extra downtime to spend in his home studio, and now on the stage. Performing with a looseness that highlights the Yardbirds influence in his playing, Mr. Perry's new album "Have Guitar, Will Travel" hit stores just a month ago. This show should not be missed, be there! All ages, Showtime 7pm.
