Steve Conte
“Steve Conte is one of the best kept secrets of the music business - but hopefully this new album will fix that.”   - Steve Lillywhite (Producer; Rolling Stones, U2, XTC, Johnny Thunders)

Steve Conte, the NYC based "triple-threat (guitarist/singer/songwriter) is an artist you've probably heard many times without even realizing it. 

As a solo artist and with his bands; Company Of Wolves, Crown Jewels, The Contes & The Crazy Truth, his songs, voice & guitar riffs have been in the public's consciousness since 1990, enjoying play on major radio stations, MTV, feature films, television programs & anime series. His albums burn with raw, passionate rock and roll and his live shows blend soulful-singing, story-telling songs and blinding guitar playing. You might call it, "Americana With Attitude."

Besides a rich solo career, Conte is a former member of the legendary New York Dolls and has also recorded/toured with artists like Paul Simon, Willy DeVille, Billy Squier, Peter Wolf, Wille Nile & Michael Monroe. 

His most recent solo release, International Cover-Up is a collection of songs written by some of his favorites; Tom Waits, John Lennon, Willy DeVille, Jagger/Richards and more. The album has been described as “High energy and tough” by Elmore Magazine and has spawned for Conte, a second Coolest Song Of The Year on Little Steven's Underground Garage Radio, the punky, "Somebody's Gonna Get Their Head Kicked In Tonight". His first "Coolest Song" came in 2014 when Van Zandt picked up on his solo debut, Steve Conte NYC and named the track "OK DJ" the #2 Song Of The Year, just behind Springsteen's #1. 

“The 'Steve Conte NYC' album is, without a doubt, one of the best records of the year!”    -  Little Steven Van Zandt

 "Music to instigate and soundtrack fighting, fucking, speeding, hurling abuse and waking up buck naked in a stranger’s bathroom.”     -  Classic Rock Magazine  (Steve Conte & The Crazy Truth album review, 5 out of 5 stars)

Creem Circus
Creem Circus
Do you know who "your favorite band's favorite band" is? It's probably the most glamtastic band to come out since BOWIE wiped the lighting bolt off his face. Creem Circus is what they call themselves (after their two favorite 70's rock magazines, of course...but you knew that)!
Hear them and you will hear original tunes with riffs and choruses that rocket you back to 1974. See them and you will be blinded by the sequins glued to the sides of their homemade platform shoes and glitter bug-eyed glasses. Meet them and you will feel the inexplicable urge to run away with the Circus! The Creem Circus!!
