Washington DC based songwriter and performer Jim Steed feels as comfortable in front of 40,000 people opening for major national acts like Elton John, Kansas, Moody Blues, Eddie Money, and Michael McDonald, or performing for the Vice President of the United States, as he does playing to a intimate club crowd. "It's all about getting the music across and connecting with people," says Jim.
For over 15 years, Jim Steed has been connecting with thousands of people locally with his brand of original pop/rock music. An award-winning songwriter, Jim's music has been featured on WUSA television, WRQX radio, as well as several well-known regional comercials. Jim has finished his first CD of original material, "'Til I Found You," which was released in Spring 2000.
As a performer, Jim is a well known singer and has played at every major venue in the region. He is also a much in demand session singer and musician having performed on dozens of jingle, CD, Television, and advertising sessions. The Jim Steed Band performs frequently at top clubs and has a loyal following throughout the Washington-Baltimore area.
We perform live throughout the Washington DC-Baltimore area. You can check out my schedule on www.jimsteed.com to see when we're near you.I absolutely love to perform live. A special moment I recall was opening for Kansas at the Rockville Hometown Holidays celebration, and performing for 40,000 people. That surpassed even my wildest expectations. Opening for Elton John and the Moody Blues at Nissan Pavillion was very cool too.
