Based in Austin, Texas, Steve Power has been described as, 'Dave Edmunds meets The Fabulous Thunderbirds on the way to see Led Zepplin.' He's also been compared to Joe Ely and Raul Malo. Steve has been entertaining since his childhood in California where he sang duets with his mother for tips in San Diego restaurants. Since then he has: Criss-crossed the United States, hitching from coast to coast and border to border... played harmonica with John Lee Hooker and Muddy Waters... sung with Joe Cocker... and stood as onstage bodyguard to Little Richard. Surviving attempted shootings, car wrecks and various governments, Steve washed up on the friendly shores of Wales, a country with a rich musical heritiage. He fit right into this fertile pool of talent, playing with all the local legends, guys with track records that include the likes of Dave Edmunds, Bo Diddley, Tom Jones, Van Morrison, and many others. His song "Money and Fun" was No.1 in the Alternative Country Chart and "Charlene" No.2 in the Cardiff Talent Chart. Voted Rhondda Valley Musician of the year in 1992, he also contributed music to the award winning Welsh language film "Boy Soldier' and formed the nearly famous Sting Like a Bee, by consensus the best American/Welsh R&B band ever. He even received accolades from Elwood Blues (just ask Dan!). Arrivng in Austin, Steve continued his pattern of connecting with the best of the best, joining forces with former Joe Ely stalwart the truely legendary guitar slinger Jesse "Guitar" Taylor, recording the EP "Somewhere in Texas". Steve's latest critically acclaimed CD "The Journey" is a captivating reflection of a colorful life and a story well told. "You've got good songs. I mean really good songs. That's why all those people came out." - Billy Joe Shaver - CMA Songwriter Hall of Fame 'Steve has given us an excellent album full of music reminiscent of the glory days of the Byrds, the Burritos, and the early Eagles - yet grounded in sounds that purists and Buddy Holly fans could easily identify with....' - Alan Rockman, L.A. music columnist.
