Steelys vocal style has been described as silky smooth with very catchy song hooks. His performances are very well received around Indiana, Illinois & Ohio where hes sold over 4500 CDs
There have been a lot of things in my life that have led me in this direction and Im completely confident in my choices, my surroundings, my music and my becoming independent as an artist. I do play in other musical projects as well, so putting a killer band together is a simple matter, but I like knowing that I dont have to depend on one particular group of musicians for my original music, and around here, I usually just take my guitar and play.I tend to make more money that way
Steelys organic and open approach to music can be credited to his influences both musical and spiritual. A very positive person whose sense of humor is undeniable. His songs strike a perfect balance between AAA and commercial singer/songwriter genres.
He performs mostly around Indiana, Illinois, and Ohio.
I'm into singer/songwriter stuff...I also dig Miles Davis....I love jazz
