Album Notes
The open road, your bike humming underneath you and a campfire with your friends at the end of the day. What more could you ask for? The fun, the people, the parties and the siren song of freedom are the things that American biker folksinger Steve Werner sings about on his new CD, Biker Campfire.

If you've ever checked out the Easyriders Video Magazine you've seen and heard Steve "Beatnik" Werner. You've dug his antics in comedy segments and his memorable music videos like Red Harley-Davidson, Giant Thing, the Zoo, King of Main Street, Hey Old Friend and the Sturgis Tango. These songs and more are available now for the first time on CD! 16 songs-a full hour of pure biker-folkie heaven!

Whatdafuck is a Biker-folkie? Well, this record is modern accoustic biker folk music. Like if you took Jim Croce, John Hiatt, Townes Van Zandt, and Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Squashed 'em together, stuffed 'em in the toolbag of a chopped '59 rigid panhead bound for Sturgis, rode a thousand miles and let 'em out to sing around a campfire while you and your buddies eat Dinty Moore Beef Stew and pass around some strong red wine in a leather bota bag.

Tons of genuine good-vibe biker attitude, with Steve's excellent bluegrassy guitar-pickin', soulful voice and a wicked sense of humor to boot. It's powerful music about life on the road played with heart and guts.

O.K., here's a Warning/Guarantee from Steve: "This isn't teenybopper music.It's not trendy and you can't dance to it unless you're real drunk. Some of it's got cuss-words in it and crude references to female body parts. It'll never be played on the radio. It is however a must for real bikers, friends of real bikers or parole officers of real bikers. If you're a Hondakawazuki-riding pseudo-biker-poseur-trend-sucking-attorney-type that rides "sometimes on the weekend to the trendy upscale biker hangout in Beverly Hills" then go buy the new Oprah Winfrey new-age-music-to-diet-by record instead. If you ride the tits off your AMERICAN motorcycle and know what a campfire smells like then you know what the hell I'm talking about. Yer my people. you won't be disappointed. Come on in."


Steve "Beatnik" Werner slithered onto the motorcycle scene in 1990, when he quietly began toiling away in the art department of Easyriders Magazine.

Little did they know they'd just hired a musical monster.

When the Producer of the Easyriders Video Magazine discovered Beatnik's considerable musical talents, He quickly put the goateed one to work writing and singing songs in the ER videos.

Now Steve has taken his fun-lovin' musical message of biker unity to runs and rallies big and small across the U.S. and Europe. Requests for a CD compilation of these songs have finally convinced him to get off his big fat ass and produce this here record, BIKER CAMPFIRE.

(Meanwhile, back at the office, he was drafted into the position of Art Destructor of Biker magazine, the scruffy and scrappy, deranged and oil-drenched sister publication to Easyriders)


Yep, you bet. Steve's actually a pretty well thought of LA guitar shredder and songwriter with 20 years of nightclub, touring, recording and TV work to his credit. (and maybe two hours sleep in the entire time)

He was the founder of seminal L.A. Roots outfit The Sleepwalkers and has traveled the wide world as Bandleader for some of rockabilly's most cherished old-timers like Glen Glenn, Sonny Burgess, D.J. Fontana, Johnny Legend, Ray Campi, Tony "Wildman" Conn, and Jimmy Angel.

His long and continuing association with expatriot American roots rocker John Whiteleather, (who has recorded classic versions of such Werner-penned songs as Cadillac Attack, Tequila Hangover, Slot-Car Party, Go Rat Go and All Drunked up) has led him to tour Europe many times as a featured guest with Whiteleather's popular Sweden-based touring band.

classic biker attitude...I enjoyed it a lot
The title, "Biker Campfire," is a perfect title for this album. The lyrics are classic biker attitude. The music does have the potential to appeal to anyone who loves the folk/roots rock styles. Overall, this album has everything to make the latter part of the party the perfect ending. I enjoyed it a lot, and think that most others will as well.

sturgis tango. need I say more
If you've been to Sturgis, you've done the Tango.


It's Awesome
Heard two of the songs and loved them.

what a voice, and what a guitar!
Can 16 songs sporting only voice and guitar knock your socks off and rattle your free spirit soul? the answer when it comes to Steve Werner's " Biker Campfire " CD. What a voice, and what a guitar! Full of biker attitude and believeable as hell. Pardon the pun, but Steve's production is so really feels like they're sitting around a Biker's Campfire. Makes you wanna go out and buy a Harley.....and hit the road. A+++++

Mood altering - Everytime we play it it feels like a party
Mood altering - everytime we play it, everyday, it changes the whole atmosphere of the day, it brings smiles & laughter who needs drugs this is a natural high

Wendell Perry, Thunder Press

"A talented songwriter and musician."
“Steve Werner is a talented songwriter and musician-Steve’s energetic guitar work is evident throughout the CD. King of Main Street, Scars, Red Harley-Davidson, Hey Old Friend and Biker Campfire, all make the listener want to go out, get on the bike and fulfill that wish to become a scooter tramp. Willie or Waylon could sing any of these and make hits out of them. But it is the wild, ribald, Sturgis Tango that takes the prize for being the most gleefully offensive, and the most evocative of the Sturgis experience. The listener gets the definite feeling that Steve has been there and done that”
