TRIPLE CREEK RECORDS ARTIST TOMMY STEELE JOINS HOLLEY•GUIDRY ROSTER

Steele Is Firing Up Fans From Michigan To Music Row

NASHVILLE, TN—May 18, 2010—Triple Creek Records artist Tommy Steele has joined the HOLLEY•GUIDRY roster effective immediately. Randy Guidry and Debbie Holley will appoint the team, design the launch, and oversee the marketing initiatives of Steele’s second single, titled “Forever 17,” from his Triple Creek CD THE LONG HAUL. HOLLEY•GUIDRY services will include radio marketing and strategic alliances. Radio setup and impression begins May 24.

“We have an innovative and exciting business model that integrates radio on multiple levels and is tailor-made for artists like Tommy Steele who has caught the attention of radio decision makers in several key markets,” says Guidry, partner, HOLLEY•GUIDRY. “It’s a terrific launch pad for Steele.”

A self-described “hardworking, music loving country boy,” Steele is rapidly becoming a mainstay performer at numerous clubs and festivals across the nation. He has opened shows for chart-topping acts including LeAnn Rimes, John Anderson, Brooks and Dunn, Gary Allen, Travis Tritt, Shooter Jennings, Jeff Foxworthy, and Gretchen Wilson. He is one who has taken full advantage of social media marketing, garnering more than two million song plays and nearly three million profile views on Myspace.

“We are extremely invigorated and enthusiastic about Tommy Steele and his music,” adds Guidry. “His live and recorded musical assets, coupled with his personality, will be a boost to the country genre. Once you see Tommy perform, you walk away a believer.”

Born in Pontiac, Michigan and raised in nearby Rochester, Tommy Steele is the son of a former General Motors assembly line worker and a former country singer. At just 11 years old Steele saved up for a three-piece Ludwig drum set that put him on the path to a career in country music. By 16, he was playing in bands such as Southern Stride, Barnstormer, and later the Steele Canyon Band, honing his craft in Detroit-area venues such as the High Kicker Saloon, Hoover Road House, Crazy Horse Saloon and Boomers, as well as area fairs and festivals.

Influenced by his parents and his love for classic and southern rock, Tommy expanded his musical talents to include playing guitar, mandolin, and bass, in addition to becoming a very skilled songsmith and unstoppable live performance front man. His commercial music influences cover the range from classic, stone-cold country to southern rock--from George Jones and the Eagles to Lynyrd Skynyrd and Iron Maiden. Today, Tommy Steele delivers his own special hybrid, a style of country music that’s been dubbed “Diesel Country.”

The heart and character of Tommy Steele is perhaps best revealed in his CD liner notes where he speaks directly to his fans and dedicates his CD to his parents. Acknowledging his upbringing, Steele thanks his dad who “built me a backbone that bends with the wind but don’t break” and his mom who “gave me a heart that won’t fall apart at the first sign of a hard pouring rain.”

Then he thanks his fans, reminding them how grateful he is for their support and promising to “always push the envelope and give the most I can give in my music and in the music industry.” He challenges everyone: “Always ‘Love Country Music.’ It’s our life, our story, our heritage.”
