Austin Music Awards Hall-of-Famer Freddie Steady Krc comes by his name honestly.
This singer / songwriter / guitarist / drummer / renaissance Texan has plied his musical wares around the world the past few decades. A charismatic live performer, Krc wins over any audience with his captivating original songs and engaging stage presence. His first love was rock and roll, which had first found its way into his native Southeast Texas by way of the Beatles. Krc appeared on dozens of national and international television shows and films. He had a role as a session drummer in the movie Outlaw Blues, starring Peter Fonda and Susan Saint James. He also did a voice-over in the UK animated film, When the Wind Blows. Krc has appeared on Austin City Limits three times, the first of which was in its first season as B.W. Stevenson’s drummer, and he would soon begin a long run as the rhythmic foundation with Jerry Jeff Walker, with whom he would write songs, work on a dozen albums and log thousands of miles.
Session drumming includes studio work with everyone from the Sir Douglas Quintet’s Augie Meyers to Carole King, Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters to The Faces’ Ronnie Lane. His published original songs number around a hundred and have been recorded by artists around the globe. He also had a song featured in the film, Purpose, and another that served as the theme for television music series, All You Can Eat Café.
His earliest and purest rock and roll tendencies all come together in his latest and greatest incarnation: The Freddie Steady 5. He also performs solo and duo acoustic (with Cam King).
Whether playing electric or acoustic, large hall or house concert, Freddie’s always rocking, always steady.
