Hey, I'm Steve. I was born, raised and currently live in Upstate New York. I write songs sometimes. I released my debut full length "Hope Is All We Have" on Barn Burner Records in 2013. I'm well into the writing process for a follow up LP entitled "Selfish or Selfless". I have no plans for extensive touring in the immediate future, but I will be playing shows in my general area from time to time.

If you do follow me, you can hear demos of new material I'm working on, get information on shows I'm playing, get a glimpse of other aspects of my life and see what all of my friends in (more successful and relevant) bands are up to. You can get in touch directly through my ask box or via email at
stevediwhy (at) gmail (dot) com and thanks a lot for taking a second to check out what I'm doing.

Physical copies of my full length can be purchased at http://barnburnerrecords.limitedrun.com/ and the entire record can be streamed and downloaded for free directly below. Thanks.

Listen to: Unfit Dullard by Steve Layman

I have no time for allegory 

The skin on my knuckles is wearing thin 
I’ll make this short and sweet and pissed 
And to the point. 

Language is a very powerful thing
But like fire 
It can light up a room 
Or consume your home. 

You better watch what you say 
When you’re in the public space. 
I won’t be silent if your choice of words 
Only reinforces mindless hate. 

Get fucked, you ignorant piece of shit. 
Don’t call anyone a whore or a faggot 
Ever again.

In the midst of such discriminatory practices, I hope that we all continue to join together, as a community of artists and activists, to use the power of our voice to fight for the justice and equality that we know is right.

New song (like I promised). Calling it “Unfit Dullard” 

In short, it’s about not using fucked up words. Everyone (including myself) needs to take a step back and take a critical look at the vocabulary used in every day conversation; and not use words that historically only exist to make people feel like less than people. Here are the lyrics.

I have no time for allegory

Language is a very powerful thing,
But like fire

You better watch what you say

I won’t be silent if your choice of words
Only reinforces mindless hate.

Get fucked, you ignorant piece of shit.
Don’t call anyone a whore or a faggot
Ever again.
