Randy Steele is an award winning banjo pickin’ singer/songwriter from Chattanooga, Tennessee. His first solo album was released in early 2017 followed by an EP released in the summer of 2018. Both albums were met with critical acclaim and spotlights from dozens of music critics, including Relix Magazine, No Depression, and The Bluegrass Situation. In 2018 Steele won an Independent Music Award for Bluegrass ‘Song of the Year’ for “Mobile Soon” and was also selected as a Finalist in the New Song LEAF Songwriting Competition. Steele continues to play out and tour with both solo shows and as the front man for Slim Pickins Bluegrass.
“The potency of the recent album release of the instant classic Moccasin Bender by Chattanooga’s own Randy Steele does not even slightly surprise me, he is a tremendously talented artist that produces beautiful music, his sophomore album release is a byproduct of that fact. Randy came out swinging with the 2017 release of his inaugural album Songs From the Suck, which was also an instant classic. Some artists might see a challenge in matching the raw power of such a dynamite first album, but from the heart and mind of a natural troubadour, poet, and music man; it simply flows from his being. This guy is a next level artist.
While I must admit that bluegrass is not my go to choice of genres, I am completely enchanted by the music that Mr. Steele produces, and fully captivated by his sound. Since the July release of Moccasin Bender, I cannot even count how many times I have listened to and felt this music. I love every bit of it, it hits me right in the heart.” – Chattanooga Pulse
