Steppin' Razor brings original, conscious roots rock reggae to the masses of the 21st Century, who not only seek an escape from the monotony, but also are inspired by positive vibrations. This music is for those who crave something new, but familiar; revolutionary, yet classic. With the release of their debut CD, Gold In Rule, Steppin' Razor's next chapter unfolds.
Their shows have taken them from the casinos of Atlantic City to many of the legendary stages of Philadelphia including the World Café, backing Reggae superstar Cherine Anderson; from Connecticut to Ocean City, Maryland. Not ones to forget their roots, the band performs regularly in their hometown of West Chester, PA. A strong fan base was built while hosting Reggae night every Wednesday night for nearly three years at a local original music venue, Spence Cafe.
Having cultivated and nurtured their approach to Reggae, work began on a record of Steppin' Razor originals. As it progressed, the band realized that it would be possible to create EVERYTHING themselves and keep all production in-house, save for the CD replication. The result is 2009's Gold In Rule. The full length album was written, produced, engineered, recorded, and mastered by the members of Steppin' Razor. Even the artwork and photography, except for 4 pictures (courtesy of Aaron Owens) were done completely by the band.
With a renewed sense of accomplishment and confidence, Steppin' Razor is looking forward to continued steady growth, with a greater focus on more songwriting and performances in original music-friendly venues. With a second album in the works, look for more shows by the band outside of the greater Philadelphia area soon!
