Album Notes
Steep Ravine is an acoustic quartet hailing from the San Francisco Bay Area. Their unique sound, equal parts poetic lyricism and string-playing ingenuity, bends folk and bluegrass in compelling new directions while paying homage to the spirited Northern California landscape the band calls home. TRAMPIN’ ON, the band’s debut album of originals, is an ode to Steep Ravine’s musical prowess, blending melodic verse, tight harmonies, and rich instrumentals while showcasing the diverse musical backgrounds of the band mates, which also encompass classical, jazz, and funk. Guitarist and lead vocalist Simon Linsteadt and violinist Jan Purat began playing music together back in high school in 2007 and later moved on to study music at UC Santa Cruz, where they met mandolinist Andy O’Brien and bassist Alex Bice in 2012.

After funding TRAMPIN’ ON with a very successful Kickstarter campaign, the band headed to Tiny Telephone Studios, an analog recording studio in San Francisco that records onto 2-inch tape. With the Fall 2013 release of the album, Steep Ravine embarked on its first national tour, with shows in Los Angeles, Phoenix, New Orleans, St. Louis, Denver, Seattle, Portland, and many points in between.

In addition to a packed schedule of shows around the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond, plus appearances at such music festivals as Outside Lands and the Northwest String Summit, the Steep Ravine has been featured live on KPIG, KPFA, KZSC, and NPR’s West Coast Live.

Here’s what others are saying about Steep Ravine:

“I love Steep Ravine! These guys can lay the hammer down on traditional bluegrass and then turn around and amaze you with innovative and tasteful new songs. They’re laying the foundation to be heavy hitters on the acoustic scene.” — Bill Evans, internationally recognized banjo extraordinaire

“Steep Ravine's personal mix of acoustic string band styles, drawing from jazz and swing, folk and bluegrass, is as refreshing as the western breezes blowing off the Pacific.” — Laurie Lewis, Grammy award-winning bluegrass and folk musician
