Get the Steel Wound Sound!

Three voices, many strings, old and new acoustic alt-folk jazzy country blues.

Original story songs and semi-obscure cover tunes.


Excitement builds 

Today we approved the proofs for the new CD.  It'll be ready soon, but if it's not at the next event, it'll be there by the next one after that!

Stay tuned!

New Video! 

Keith came across a little gem in the rough the other day and applied some polish.  Check out our cover of Fred Eaglesmith's Freight Train from last year's Tunes for Teeth benefit.  It's in the new Video section.  It was recorded from the audience, so the volume is a little lower than the tunes in the Music page. 


You know how it is when you’re sitting in a restaurant, and you might be really hungry, and it just seems to take forever for even the appetizers to arrive.  You hope it’s worth the wait. 

We’ve posted a couple of verses of some tunes as a starter on the Music page.  Give them a listen, and let us know if you’d like to taste some more as we go along.
We’re hard at it on the CD, mixing and soon mastering.  More to come.  Stay tuned!
