Mit „Turn Of The Wheel“ meldet sich The Steepwater Band zurück, das Bluesrock-Quartett aus Chicago rund um den Sänger, Textschreiber und Gitarristen Jeff Massey. Über 20 Jahre Bühnenerfahrung haben die vier Musiker, die mit dem neuen Lonplayer ihr siebtes Studioalbum veröffentlichen.

Die Bandbreite reicht dabei von klassischem Blues mit launigem Groove, lässigem Chicago-Blues-Rock über Southern-Rock bis hin zu eher im Classic Rock zu verortenden Nummern. Das klingt oft nach Muddy Waters, Neil Young oder den Black Crowes: Genrefans werden üppig bedient und haben Spaß an der Mischung.  Das Material wurde direkt an der Küste des Michigan-Sees aufgenommen und es markiert gleichzeitig den Einstieg des Neuzuganges Joe Bishop am Bass. Dennoch schließt sich das Album nahtlos an den bisherigen Output der Steepwater Band an.

Für die Songs haben sich die Amerikaner ein paar helfende Hände ins Studio geholt, die immer wieder tolle Akzente setzen können, so zum Beispiel Eddie Money-Keyboarder Chris Grove oder das überraschende Saxofon-Solo von Terry „Sonny Lee“ Tritt auf dem Song ‚That’s Not The Way‘. Im Falle der Steepwater Band ist genau diese Innovation aber ein guter Weg und verleiht „Turn Of The Wheel“ immer wieder neues Drehmoment. Der Schwerpunkt liegt auf bei den beiden Gitarren, die ihre Sounds gemeinsam oder auch in starken Soli zu einem feinen, groovenden Klangteppich verweben. Großartig: Die Nummer ‚Trance‘, die etwas an Grand Funk Railroad oder ELO erinnert mit ihrem mitreissenden Uptempo und dem breiten Sound.

The Steepwater Band liefern mit „Turn Of The Wheel“ ein sehr gutes Bluesrock-Album ab, das den Genrefans viel Spaß machen sollte.  (whiskey-soda.de)



The Steepwater Band “Turn of the Wheel” Set for Release. When the Chicago winter finally breaks this year, The Steepwater Band will release their brand new album “Turn of the Wheel” on April 24, 2020 via the band’s own imprint, Diamond Day Records. The eleven song set was recorded last year on the shores of Lake Michigan at the new Vigo Street Studios in Miller Beach, Indiana, marking the band’s return to work with producer / engineer Jim Winters (brother of TSB drummer Joe Winters), who recorded their fan-favourite 2006 release “Revelation Sunday.” For TSB, it’s their seventh full length studio record and first recorded work since 2016’s “Shake Your Faith.” This also marks the first album to feature new bassist Joe Bishop, rounding out the sound along with veteran guitarist Eric Saylors, and co-founding members Jeff Massey on lead vocals / guitars, and Joe Winters on drums. The songwriting on “Turn of the Wheel” is an eclectic, rootsy mix of musical contributions by all four band mates, with Massey handling the lyrical content exclusively. Along for the ride this time around are a few guest musicians - longtime Eddie Money keyboardist Chris Grove, percussion by the band’s old friend Freddy Gonzalez, and for the first time ever on a TSB record, a saxophone cameo by Terry “Sonny Lee” Tritt. "To my ears, this is the best Steepwater record to date," said Jeff Massey regarding the upcoming release." He added, "the new music displays the raw quality of the band‘s early efforts, combined with a confidence that could only come from many years of recording and touring." TSB drummer Joe Winters said, "I think this record says everything about where we are RIGHT NOW as a band, and getting to reconnect with my brother Jim in the studio sure was a lot of FUN!” The finishing touches for “Turn of the Wheel” were added by Grammy award-winning mastering engineer Adam Ayan at Gateway Mastering in Portland, Maine. After the album’s release, extensive touring is planned for the band in the States and Europe, so be sure to check TSB social media for new shows, pre-sale info, new music videos and more, all coming very soon!
