The music of Steel Petals is grounded in roots and as such conjures up a warm familiarity we can all identify with. Combining elements of southern rock, country blues, gospel, soul, and funk, their music is driven by inspiration wholly unique to their own. Gritty lap steel, Hammond B3, electric piano, groove based drums and bass vanguard a style reminiscent of groups such as The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, The Allman Brothers Band, Mofro, The Black Crowes, James Gang, and Derek and the Dominoes.
While the band is not above the occasional jam, songs are concise but powerful and capable of attracting a diverse audience during live performances.
Steel Petals has come a long way in its two short years of evolution. Their hard work finally paid off when they were voted Best Original Band at the 2009 TUW Battle of the Bands at the Music Farm in Charleston. The band is scheduled to release their first full length album in April 2010. They will continue to perform and attract fans all throughout the Southeast region.
