Shows  Hope Is All We Have  Demos  Contact  SRL Booking  



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". 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

Thanks for taking time to check out what I'm doing. Even if you hated it, you exposed yourself to something different and that's hard to do sometimes.

Physical copies of my full length can be purchased at http://barnburnerrecords.limitedrun.com/

Check out a new jam from my friends in Pentimento. Video captured by Livia at their show at The Party Expo in Brooklyn, this new song is called "The Spirit Of The Stairs" and I would safely assume it will be on their upcoming split with Young English.

My good friends in Pentimento have a killer new shirt design. Pick one up if you’re into angsty teenagers.
