Only Nashville could give birth to a band like The SteelDrivers: a talented group of seasoned musicians - each distinguished in his or her own right. The group's bluegrass roots combine with country and soul influences to create a refreshing, decidingly contemporary sound. This is new music with an old feeling. The SteelDrivers fan, Vince Gill, describes the band's fusion as simply as "an incredible combination."
The innovative, soulful bluegrass band The SteelDrivers released their fourth Rounder Records The Muscle Shoals Recordings in 2015. The album reached #1 on the Billboard Bluegrass Chart and received a GRAMMY® award for "Best Bluegrass Album." Earlier this year, The SteelDrivers re-released their 2008 self-titled debut album on vinyl. It is available here.
The band's recent tour dates have wow'd critics, who praise the band's "gutsy, gritty, bluegrass songs" (Juli Thanki, The Tennessean). Writing in the Philadelphia Inquirer Ad Amorosi declared, "You can call it power-bluegrass or country soul, but whatever you call it, Nashville's SteelDrivers have bushels of it."
