Feeling a bit camera shy


A recovering New Yorker, CHRIS STEELE first cut his teeth on Bleecker Street with the rock/fusion project, The Johnny Tweed Show. After parting ways in 2003 Chris retooled his songs for the local coffeehouses. However as his writing matured and took on alt-country, blues and neo-garage influences, Steele felt increasingly confined by the solo format. Transplanted to Chicago in August '05, he sought out collaborators with the talent and style to match his ambitions as a songwriter.

CURRAN MCHENRY has played in a slew of eclectic Chicago-area bands, including Something Being Broken, Higher 4 Hire, and Wonderland. Previous efforts with SBB have aired on local radio and H4H was a featured act at Hempfest 2003. Curran teamed up with Steele in September 2005. His home studio is The Live Wire's current base of operations.

Growing up in a musical family, JASON DEIBERT started playing bass at age 14. After years of studying under local studio musicians and jazz players he has developed a style that is unique yet versatile and grounded in fundamentals. Previous bands/projects ranged in genre from hip/hop and funk to traditional jazz and rock and roll. Personal influences include but are not limited to: Jaco Pastorious, Marcus Miller, Victor Wooten, James Jamerson, Jimi Hendrix and the Beatles. Jason joined Live Wire in October 2005.
