Steve Pryor is excited to announce his new album will be recorded at Church Studio and released on Horton Records later in 2012.
The current Steve Pryor Band includes Steve on guitar / vocals, Lloyd Price on guitar, Skin Tight Dave White on bass, and Damon Daniel on drums. This unit has been playing together for the last 2 years and is a well-oiled machine, hitting on all cylinders. Steve recently recorded some material at the legendary Church Studio for a project called The New Tulsa Sound Vol. 2. This experience really sparked a creative fire and was a catalyst for this project. There's a genuine excitement and buzz about the opportunity to make the best album of Steve's illustrious career with a dynamite band at an historic studio that has hosted the likes of Leon Russell, Steve Ripley, JJ Cale, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Willis Alan Ramsey, Tom Petty, and many others.
In 1978 Muddy Waters told Steve, "Don't ever put that guitar down!" Since that time he has shared the stage with John Lee Hooker, Albert King, Buddy Guy, B.B. King, Bonnie Raitt, Greg Allman, and Dr. John, Johnny Winter, to name a few. His tours with the Fabulous Thunderbirds, Paul Butterfield Blues Band, and countless performances in concerts, night clubs, and blues festivals have left enduring impressions on all who attended.
Steve's guitar style and singing encompass a history of Blues Americana without compromising his love for extreme, rocking Stratocaster guitar tones. The Steve Pryor Band provides plenty of material for the blues purist, however, unlike many strict bluesmen, they see nothing wrong with tapping the roots of rock 'n 'roll, jazz or country to get thier message across.
Steve's rich history also includes his performance in and contributions to the soundtrack of "The Gun in Betty Lou's Handbag" as well as projects by Dennis Hopper, (Chasers"), HBO, Filmwerks, and Melrose Place.
Steve was once described as, “Gene Autry stepping off a UFO with a Stratocaster in his hand and an Elmore James song in his heart.” With their unique sound, which taps not only into blues but also rock 'n roll & red dirt, The Steve Pryor Band is sure to satisfy all who listen.
