Steelesque To Drop Live EP April 1st | The Basement Tapes Volume 1

STEELESQUE

One night, the spring of 2014, five guys played some good music in Sonic Planet Studios, Pittsburgh PA. I decided to set up a room mic (Rode NT1a) , guitar mic (Shure 58 Beta) and hit record. I eventually went back to have a listen and the moment was there. Big-brash-rock and roll drums that I couldn’t really EQ, tasty and free flowing slide guitar, mando licks and lockdown piano. A great sonic canvas for songs I wrote last year. It was a different interpretation of each of the songs but it worked this night. It certainly wasn’t a perfect performance by any means but the emotive appeal supersedes the perfect mistakes. Download and drag these songs into your iTunes Library. I mean……they’re free.

Sealed In Wax,

Vinyl Release Update

I appreciate everybody’s patience during this learning experience for me.  I never realized the timeline/length of the vinyl process.  I am happy to say the record should be delivered to me by the end of September. Which means it will be in your hands a week or two later.  Mid October would be a conservative delivery date for all the Kickstarter contributors.

Download – Room Full Of Gardens

Rob Eldridge, known for his band Steelesque, departs a bit from his classic-rock roots to present Rooms Full of Gardens. One might guess that in preparation for this solo effort, Eldridge has been listening to more Wilco and The Kinks than The Rolling Stones. The vocals are soft, the lyrics introspective and poetic, and while the percussion is primarily of the machine variety, it adds an edgy element rather than cheapening the experience. Definitely worth a spin or two.

— Seth Pfannenschmidt – Pittsburgh City Paper

Rob Eldridge a Burlington, Vermont Singer/Songwriter now based in Pittsburgh PA has a name around the block having supporting the following National Acts: The Jayhawks, Big Country, Government Mule, Warren Haynes, members of Phish, Blue Rodeo, Edgar Winter, Aimee Mann, Tea Leaf Green, Tumbleweed Wanderers, Big Wreck, Uncle Green, Raging Slab, Animal Bag, God Street Wine, Moonboot Lover.

After garnering accolades with his rock and roll outfit Steelesque. He decided to hole up with Producer Steven Foxbury in Yellow Couch Studio and write a batch of tunes that drew the attention of Grammy Award Winning – Mastering Engineer Rueben Cohen- Lurssen Mastering, Hollywood CA. Cohen added his dustings to the EP and Rooms Full Of Gardens was conceived. The EP can best be described as flowing 6 song acoustic atmospheric tornado that swirls with vocal harmonies reminiscent of late Beck records and the acoustic songwriting charm of a Josh Rouse offering.  Eldridge plays a 1965 pawn shop piece Stella in the open E tuning throughout. With no songs barely going past 3 minutes all the little nuggets abound like low lying fruit for starving music aficionados.
