The Steve Brockley Band will be bringing their folk country sound to the Rockwater Grill and Bar in Golden on April 17 for a special one night show.

A perfect mix of country and folk at the Rockwater Grill and Bar in Golden

The B.C.-based folk-country trio, the Steve Brockley Band, are coming to the Rockwater Grill and Bar on April 17.

The B.C.-based folk-country trio, the Steve Brockley Band, are coming to the Rockwater Grill and Bar on April 17, just one day after releasing their album LeBoeuf.

They released their self-titled debut album back in 2010 to much critical acclaim after spending the last couple of years touring across Canada, playing club dates, house shows, and festivals.

The boys are ready to jump into their tour vehicle of choice, a wood-paneled station wagon named John Candy, to promote LeBoeuf.

The new album was produced by John Raham, with songs written by Steve Brockley, and includes all of the signature staples of the Steve Brockley Band – storytelling, clever metaphors, and great musicianship.

But this one is a much more personal album for the band.

“When we recorded the first album, we were brand new and we just got in the studio and recorded and mixed the whole thing in three days – quick and dirty,” said Brockley.

“On this one, after spending the last couple years on the road together, we felt we owed the new material the best possible opportunity to come alive. We took the time we needed to capture the songs without chasing them away.”

Born in B.C. and formed in Montreal, the Steve Brockley Band can’t easily be defined by one sound or musical genre. Though it is apparent that the band is part of the tradition of folk music, they’re able to take the style in new directions without making the audience feel uprooted.

The band draws varied comparisons in their music ranging from J.J. Cale, Townes Van Zandt, Hank Williams, and Bob Dylan. Getting to the heard of a song is their main goal.

There’s no rush to the end of a song – if it’s right, it happens. The main thing is not to hurry, so nothing good gets away. And that’s what the Steve Brockley Band does best.
