The Steel Drivers - The Steel Drivers

Regular price $25.00 $0.00

What distinguishes the Steeldrivers are the forcefulness of their arrangements—the combination of banjoist Richard Bailey and bassist Mike Fleming makes for a potent enough rhythm section, giving standout cuts like “Blue Side of the Mountain” and “If You Can’t Be Good, Be Gone,” a driving, percussive energy—and the ragged, soulful vocals of frontman Chris Stapleton. Bluegrass albums are typically characterized by the cleanliness of their playing, but the Steeldrivers, though their technical skills are certainly top-notch, emphasize power. Genre purists may bristle at its rough edges, but The Steeldrivers stands as one of the most accomplished and certainly one of the most distinctive bluegrass debuts in recent memory. -Slant
