The Strands, formed in late 2011, have been gaining critical acclaim with their genre-defying sound that they like to call Artisanal. With an emphasis on thoughtful and provocative lyrics, The Strands groove as lead singer, Amanda Campbell, delivers their original material with passion and style. Alongside West Coast Blues Hall of Famer Richard Green on lead guitar playing elegant and restrained rhythms and solos, Emily Ashenfelter on keys and background vocals, and Strands founder, Paul, on bass guitar.

CAPTAIN DANGER is here to save the day.
Serving up “a perfect blend of pop, rock and funk with killer vocals and musicality,” CAPTAIN DANGER has a unique but “immediately likable” catalog of classics.
CAPTAIN DANGER “pulls off the perfect pop formula so well it doesn’t feel formulaic at all" (as CMJ had once said).
This powerhouse trio consists of songwriter/singer/ guitarist AARON STEINBERG (at ease in highly flammable 70s polyester) and the fab talents of drummer ROGER "JOOSE" BENFORD (SiR, Shafiq Husayn, Patrick Paige) and bassist/vocalist KEITH EADDY (Macy Gray, Dam-Funk, Jody Watley, Loose Ends).


Steve McCormick has released six studio albums to date with Stars and Chandeliers being the most recent.  His music is based in Americana. His soulful guitar playing and raspy voice carry the influence of iconic American artists like Townes van Zandt, Ry Cooder, Little Feat and The Meters. He is a consumate recording artist, covering all facets from songwriting and performance to recording, production and mixing.

Raised in the Midwest, Steve McCormick's interest in roots music led to a bachelor’s degree in American Studies from Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota, where he wrote his senior thesis on American Music. In the years that followed, McCormick honed his recording skills by working with tube microphone guru Steve McKinstry and his Salmagundi Studios. Shortly thereafter, McCormick’s songwriting led to a publishing deal with Nashville based Wrensong.

McCormick later left the midwest for Los Angeles, where he now resides and is a studio owner, producer, performer, session player, composer/songwriter and microphone builder.

As a producer, McCormick has produced countless albums for artists such as Phil Cody, Michael Sherwood, Amilia K Spicer, Tim O'Gara and Heather Donavon to name a few.  Though his slide guitar skills are highly sought after, his songwriting and recordings have set him apart as a voice in music today. His songs have been alongside the Counting Crows, Peter Gabriel, and The Pretenders in the hit NBC show “Homicide”. He’s worked with such notable artists as Stan Behrens (Canned Heat, Willie Dixon), Eric Lynn, Richie Hayward (Little Feat), Stevie Di Stanislao (CSN, Joe Walsh, Loggins and Messina, David Gilmore), Phil Cody, and Pete Wasner (Vince Gill, Lowell George) in a wide variety of collaborations.
