The Steel Wheels have captured audiences across the country with their heady brew of original soulful mountain music and their deep commitment to roots and community. Based in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, this dynamic four-piece string band marries old-time musical traditions with their own innovative sound and lifestyle, generating a truly magnetic revival.

 ..."End of the World Again," quite possibly one of the most beautiful songs of homecoming ever written. 
-The Bluegrass Situation

"These men don't rely on clichés, but they do have their feet steady in the firmament of sophisticated folk music.  Woody Guthrie and Hank Williams would be proud of their word play, their ambitious colorful language in their story... The Steel Wheels should be enjoyed because they sound like no one else in roots music."

-No Depression
