|The Steel Wheels|
American music at its best

“The Steel Wheels break down some bluegrass stereotypes, bringing youth and thoughtfulness to a vibrant American art form.” — Rich Warren, Folkstage WFMT
"[The Steel Wheels] travel along a path through the listener’s ears and aim directly for the heart." - Dirty Linen
The Steel Wheels are truly an Americana band, rooted in musical styles that explore the territories between blues and bluegrass, old-time sing-alongs and foot-stompin' fiddle tunes. They are subtle innovators who respect the past but whistle their own tunes, layering in rich textures and decidedly modern energy to forge a new sound.
The band shines exceptionally in their live shows, and their palpable chemistry translates easily to their latest album, Red Wing, which garnered critics’ praise and was met with tremendous success on the radio. It spent 13 weeks on the Americana Music Association Top 40 radio charts, topping out at #15, as well as cracking the top 10 of the EuroAmericana charts. Red Wing ranked #70 of the top 100 Americana albums of 2010 and #2 of all independent releases (Americana Music Association).
