Steel Standing

Steel Standing


Intense, hard hitting, and powerful. From the fast riffs, to the soft ballads, Steel Standing's music is fueled by the passion of it's members.


Steel Standing is a Charlotte, North Carolina, trio that exploded onto the music scene in 2005 with their debut single “Fall Away”. Within months the Fall Away single was put on the Rocket13 compilation disc distributed by Amps Eleven Magazine, getting airtime on the Carolina Rock Radio, an Internet radio station, and on the WEND 106.5 local and regional music show 90 minutes. Their entrancing music consisting of powerful riffs, melodic rhythm, and hypnotizing solos quickly earned them a loyal following. Steel Standing has been compared to the Foo Fighter's, Three Day's Grace, Chevelle, and Trapt.

Current members include Neil Jackson, Jeff Dunegan, and Chris Goodman, which all bring over 10 years of experience to the table. Neil Jackson, the band's front man, brings guitar and vocals that set extreme standards for this modern rock trio. Due to the breakup of his former band, Orange Envy, Neil brings a great amount of passion to the band, which you can truly see in his lyrics and live performances. Jeff "JD" Dunegan, coming from Major Nelson and also briefly in Orange Envy, offers intricate bass lines that set the groove for Steel Standing’s music, thanks to his extensive guitar background. Chris "Goody" Goodman, on drums and formerly of Sacred Faith, adds his own diversity with his hard-hitting drums and intensive live performances. His beats often present a fusion of classic and modern rock styles.
