For Immediate Release:
October 2, 2013
Vancouver, BC - 2013 has been a busy one for the Steve Brockley Band! After releasing their 2nd album LeBoeuf on April 16th, the BC-based folk-country trio hit the road for 3 separate Cross-Canada tours, showcased at NXNE in Toronto and played at several summer festivals. And since the year isn't over yet, the band is planning to go out in style with one more Canadian Tour starting on October 17th in Winnipeg. The upcoming tour is to celebrate the release of LeBoeuf on vinyl.
Since it's release in April, there's been plenty of critical buzz surrounding LeBoeuf with Saskatoon's Planet S Magazine saying, "LeBoeuf sees Brockley and his bandmates displaying a more mature sound that strikes a balance between swagger and narrative." And according to the Vancouver Music Review, "[Steve Brockley Band] reminds me of the charmingly clever lyrics of Jeremy Fisher but with a more Southern drawl. If you’re into Canadiana country folk, this is the band for you....." And with the release of LeBoeuf on vinyl, fans may even discover an extra layer to the album that wasn't there before.
"LeBoeuf was recorded at a higher quality than what you can put on a CD or mp3," explains Brockley. "So, on vinyl there's just simply more of it there - it sounds like the way it was recorded."
The Steve Brockley Band can't easily be defined by one sound or musical genre. Though it is apparent that the band is part of the tradition of folk music, they’re able to take the style in new directions without making the audience feel uprooted. The band draws varied comparisons in their music ranging from: J.J. Cale, Townes Van Zandt, Hank Williams, John Prine, Bob Dylan and The Band. Getting to the heart of a song is their main goal. Not just digging into the notes, but nailing those spaces in between the notes. When you’ve got a good song, you want to let it breathe. A percussive double bass swagger, drum grooves from the gut, and a rolling finger picked guitar bring their brand of folk music to life. There’s no rush to the end of a song – if it's right, it happens. The main thing is not to hurry, so nothing good gets away. And that's what the Steve Brockley Band does best.
The Steve Brockley Band will be selling their limited edition LeBoeuf vinyl at all tour dates on the upcoming tour (while supplies last). Don't miss out on your last chance to see the Steve Brockley Band live in 2013! For more info and the most up-to-date tour schedule, please visit: stevebrockley.com
