The Steepwater Band / Press

“ONE OF THE BEST ROCK ALBUMS TO HIT IN 2011... Nothing’s too gussied up so the honest grit and sweat of rock ‘n’ roll comes through loud and clear, and behind everything a crossroads right blues soul howls. Clava continues the group’s evolution by simply refining every promising aspect this taut trio has exhibited in the past. If you’re charged up by what The Black Keys or Black Crowes are putting down lately, there’s little doubt Clava will flip your wig big time.”

“With their latest offering, Clava, the group has stepped out from under their influences' shadow to claim their own sound.”

“Crank Live At The Double Door up LOUD and this shit will crawl right into the meat of you, and you won't be sorry for the reminder of your basic incarnation and carnality... You can practically smell the sweat pouring down the walls as TSB drag blues rock back to the same craggy, longhaired territory where early Zeppelin had their way with it. ”

“With blaring rock n roll bravado (on Live at the Double Door), the trio fired a bullet directly into the heart...with ramble ready dynamic shifts, full-toned vocals and the makings of a band on the run. ”

“Every record is better than the former, and they always maintain an evolution within the American roots rock. For the moment we can only wonder when they will reach the top of their abilities. Marah and Drive-By Truckers have been dethroned. Everybody stand up to salute their new majesties: THE STEEPWATER BAND.”

“Grace And Melody has the feel of natural born rockers determined to get everyone's rocks off. Producer Marc Ford does endlessly effective work, bringing his experience with The Black Crowes. This is feel-rock at its finest and it hits your belly like a big steak after a three-day fast.”

"Classic influences but no nostalgia...these guys are fresher than most of what gets passed off as 'new' these days. On GRACE AND MELODY the band is in their finest form yet."

“The dirty sounding, masterful slide work reminded me of 'Exile' era Stones. The band's sound is firmly entrenched in the roots of the blues; however they up the ante by throwing tinges of psychedelia and country into the mix and the sound is absolutely massive and in your face at all times.”

Ryan Sparks - Classic Rock Revisited

“Grace And Melody hints of previous Steepwater records, but continues the band's evolution. The songwriting is growing...attached to the history of rock and roll while they actively expand it. The Steepwater Band continues to impress as one of rock's shining lights.”

“Taking a spin with Chicago sons The Steepwater Band is akin to traversing the backroads of American rock and blues, then crossing the pond for a close look at how certain British rock gods purveyed that music.”

Ward Meeker - Vintage Guitar

“This band has traveled a long and winding musical road. From the Delta to the electrified blues of Chicago, across the Atlantic to the blues-inspired rock of the Stones, Zeppelin and Free before making their way back through the Texas roadhouses.”

“If Janis Joplin and Ronnie Van Zant were booking a band to play on a serene summer night and the Allman Brothers were unavailable, it would without question be The Steepwater Band.”
