ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Steel Wound is an acoustic trio from Vernon, BC, Canada.

Trading lead vocals, blending three part harmonies, chopping chords and picking a variety of strings, Steel Wound cycles through a repertoire that reaches back to the 1800s. They present thoughtful original tunes and “semi-obscure alt-roots jazzy country blues”, citing influences as varied as Fred Eaglesmith, Mississippi John Hurt, Big Bill Broonzy, Bob Dylan, The Band, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Leon Redbone and many others.

The band's first CD, “Last Dance at the Starlight Lounge”, features eight originals by songwriter Kerry Parks along with four characteristic cover tunes to present the Steel Wound sound.

Fans have compared Parks’ writing style and voice variously to John Prine, Bob Dylan or Gordon Lightfoot: “…sings like Leonard Cohen.” He eschews comparisons and says he just tries to express image and emotion with honesty and an element of universality.


Keith Hustler on lead and harmony vocals, lead guitar and mandolin, has been playing guitar since his teens. When not making music, he keeps busy building and repairing guitars and other stringed instruments in his shop.

Rod MacDonald on acoustic bass, tuba, and harmony vocals, is a man familiar to music lovers in the North Okanagan and is much in demand for his session work with many local musicians.

Kerry Parks on lead and harmony vocals, guitar, dobro, banjo and harmonica, croaks out the blues, croons sweet ballads, or lays out what he likes to call message tunes in a voice that rasps or rumbles, with a passion gentle or righteous.


With an obvious enjoyment for the music they make, Steel Wound puts a new twist on the old tunes and make the new ones sound comfortably familiar.
