Simultaneously familiar and fresh, the Steel Wheels bring a singular energy to
every note they play and sparkling craf to each song. Tis potent
combination, paired with a robust tour calendar, have made the veteran band
hands-down favorites of fans and peers alike. From their base in Virginia’s
Blue Ridge Mountains, TSW have played the most prestigious festivals,
listening rooms, and clubs in the world, cementing a reputation as one of the
top independent bands on the scene today.
While 2017’s stunning studio album, Wild As We Came Here, was still ringing
in the air, the band shone a light on their concerts with the release of two EPs
of live music; Volume 1: Live at the Station Inn, and Volume 2: Live at Te
Jefferson Teatre. Ever ambitious and not content to let moss grow under their
feet, the Wheels returned to the woods of Maine and studio-retreat of Sam
Kassirer, producer of Wild, to record another studio album, Over Te Trees, to
be released in July 2019.
In keeping with their relentless growth, the quartet has become a quintet with
the permanent addition of percussionist Kevin Garcia to the longtime lineup
of Brian Dickel, Trent Wagler, Jay Lapp, and Eric Brubaker.
2019 also marks the seventh year for the Steel Wheel’s signature event; the Red
Wing Roots Music Festival. Held in Natural Chimney Park in Mt. Solon,
Virginia, the annual celebration of roots music and the outdoors hosts a
dazzling musical lineup and a wide array of non-musical activities, including
organized bike rides, morning yoga, and hikes, allowing fans to take full
advantage of the beautiful landscape of the park and surrounding area. Te
wide variety of opportunities and the family-friendly nature of Red Wing
Roots have made it a perfect destination for music and nature lovers of all
ages with the event regularly selling out year afer year.
