Bass swagger, gut bucket drums, and a rolling finger picked electric guitar - Folk music isn't usually this greasy. LeBoeuf now out on vinyl! "Whatever it is you want from life, Brockley & CO. are going to give you some" Penguin Eggs Magazine

Biography

With the 2014 summer festival season wrapped-up, Steve Brockley Band have begun work towards heading back into the studio in the new year. Since the 2013 release of their 2nd album, "LeBoeuf", produced by John Raham (Be Good Tanyas, Frazey Ford), the BC-based trio hit the road for 4 separate Cross-Canada tours, showcased at NXNE in Toronto, Folk Alliance International in Kansas City and played at several summer festivals. 

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 youre into Canadiana country folk, this is the band for you....." And Penguin Eggs Magazine calling LeBoeuf "a delightfully laid back affair."

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, 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 youve got a good song, you want to let it breathe. A percussive bass swagger, drum grooves from the gut, and a rolling finger picked guitar bring their brand of folk music to life. Theres no rush to the end of a song, the main thing is not to hurry, so nothing good gets away. And that's what the Steve Brockley Band does best.
