ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Chicago-bred trio’s organic, hard-driving synthesis of gutsy hard rock, gritty Delta blues, soulful backwoods boogie and down-home psychedelia has taken its hometown by storm. The frenzied power of the band's live shows has won them a fiercely loyal fan base, and their last CD Dharmakaya (produced by Sean Slade & Paul Kolderie – Radiohead, Hole, Warren Zevon) received substantial airplay across the Midwest, including Chicago's influential WXRT.

The Steepwater Band (guitarist / vocalist Jeff Massey, bassist Tod Bowers and drummer Joseph Winters) have played together since their teens in various rock and blues combos. The three musicians united to form The Steepwater Band in 1998, taking the name from a barge Massey spotted in Lake Michigan.

The young trio quickly found their own voice, progressing from covering Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson, and John Lee Hooker songs to writing and performing their own compelling originals. From the beginning, The Steepwater Band has been a relentless performing unit, playing an average of 125 shows per year -- headlining such prestigious Chicago venues as the Metro and the Double Door -- while expanding their touring base throughout the Midwest and beyond.

The Steepwater Band has shared the stage with acts as diverse as Buddy Guy, Wilco, Gov't Mule, Cheap Trick, Umphreys McGee, Bad Company, Drive-By Truckers, and Deep Purple. In 2005 the band made its European debut, performing at the Azkena Rock Festival in Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain and has returned the following two years for club/festival tours.

Revelation Sunday clearly draws the roadmap of The Steepwater Band’s musical drive and direction. The songs on the record range from straight-ahead roots-rockers like “Collision” and “Steel Sky,” to a composition of Indian flavor called “Dance Me A Number.” They even dabble in pop-sensibility on the infectiously catchy “Halo,” along with the beautifully melodic “A Lot Of Love Around.” Brand new and collectively written as a band, the song sequence on Revelation Sunday takes the listener on an aural trip through the band’s present, while offering a glimpse of what might be in store for their future.

The creative electricity and contagious energy of the band is equally evident in their live performances, as their shows have been well-received by critics and fans alike. It’s the unpretentious devotion to their music, and their commitment to achieving their musical goals without compromising the integrity of their musical vision, that makes The Steepwater Band such a refreshing discovery.

BEST ALBUM YET !!!!!
THIS ALBUM SMOKES! The Steepwater Band in my opinion is so
much better as a three piece. This album smokes Dharmakaya-no disrespect to that album either. When is the music industry going to get their head out of their ass!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

DANIMAL


BLUES % NICE MELODY

Diamond In The Rough
The Steepwater Band revert back to their original lineup as a trio and produce a very fine CD in Revelation Sunday but for me the ghost of former member Michael Connolly still lingers and the CD lacks a little of the width and depth that he provided.
Several stand out tracks here but Slow Train Drag is worth $11.99 on its own.

I first heard this band on a cruise in early January and they rocked the ship. The music on this CD is awesome! I listen to it quite a bit and enjoy it more with each listening. I hope to hear the music on the radio in PA.

Another outstanding release!
This release proves once again that Steepwater is a truly great band. REVELATION SUNDAY is not only great rock, it's also a very smart album that keeps the best of the band's qualities up front while branching-out into new areas.
Songs like MERCY, COLLISION, and INDIANA LINE are true form Steepwater: gritty, soulful, bluesy rock with a punch. HALO, and especially DANCE ME A NUMBER, show Steepwater breaking into new territory in a way that works (as opposed to some bands who do this and come across as desperate).
The result is a an effort that shows Steepwater at the top of their game: doing what they do best and branching out with confidence, intelligence and just great go##amn music.


Never ceasing to amaze
Just when you thought it couldn't get any better than Dharmakaya, Revelation Sunday packs the biggest punch to date! Is there anything this band can't do??

Get this record now!
This is serious, heart-felt rock and roll with a blues edge. When listening to this record, I keep thinking each tune gets better and better. Opening with the rollicking "Mercy," it draws you in and never lets you go...to the infectious "Baby, You're On Your Own. The unique track on the record, "Dance Me a Number" is at once flamenco and eastern, makes you want to dance for certain. Through and through these musicians deliver solid performances and wonderful songwriting. This is one of those records that keeps you going back to start it over again.


These guys are huge talents, each a master of his own craft and expertly interweaved to create a sound that defines rock and roll. It is refreshing and reassuring that we have rock and roll of this caliber being created today. If these boys would have come out in the early 70's they would have been opening for the likes of Faces or the Cream.

Rock on boys, you will be gathering many more fans with this classic record!
