The genuine article

Beautiful stories, fascinating process, and characteristically excellent song making are brought together seamlessly in this podcast by The Steel Wheels. Their genuineness shines through from start to finish, capped with Trent’s exhortation to everyone to create. This show is the treat we all need in 2020.

These guys are for real

I have loved the music of The Steel Wheels for many years and cannot wait to see them in person again. The songs they have written for us are so powerful and touch the heart, like all of their music. I wish I had been paying attention when they asked for people’s stories, don’t we all have a story we’d like memorialized? If you like folk music and musicians who care you must listen to this podcast and their music.

My Name is Sharon

I have no words to adequately describe the emotion, gratitude and love for this band. My daughter Sharon was a huge fan. My Name Is Sharon was written for and about her.. she passed in 2013 from epilepsy. This beautiful song captures the true soul and essence of this amazing young woman. Thank you from the bottom of my broken heart ..
