NEW MUSIC PROFILE - COUNTRY FOLK BAND "STEEL BLOSSOMS"
Country-Folk duo Sara Zebley and Hayley Prosser moved from their hometown in Pittsburgh, USA to Nashville to pursue their dream. Steel Blossoms the band was created in 2014 after the pair met at a local festival in 2008, after multiple performances every week they created a large fan base all over Western Pennsylvania. Nasville beckoned in the background and the move was hard but the girls haven't looked back and still have their Pittsburgh roots and personalities intact.
Their debut six track E.P. "Year Number One" was released in 2015 and was entirely funded by fan pre-orders such is their growing reputation. The duo followed this up with their debut album, "Country Enough". On the basis of songs like "I'm Still Me, You're Still Me" "Love, Love, Love", I am sure they will be giving the likes of Taylor Swift and other Country legends a run for their money.
The girls play full time every week around Nashville, and their closeness to their fans is paramount to their success. They give a personal touch to their fans, sometimes playing "house concerts" to families they have met, they joke and share stories with their fans at concerts and seem to be just down to earth, genuine girls who like to spread a little happiness and positivity around. That's never a bad thing and more bands should take a note or two from these girls!
The songs are pure with beautiful harmonies and superb musicianship on fiddle or guitars. There are quite a few live cover versions the girls have put on YouTube, check them out especially the Taylor Swift cover "Blank Space" and Idina Menzel's "Let It Go". Very talented ladies and charming personas who will shine brightly in the home of Country and beyond.
