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/


My friend David Bullock filmed my set from the Oneonta date of my LP Release weekend. I played full band with my best friends, as well as with The Menzingers & my friends in Dirtpope. This song is a new one called “Stubble” and it will also be on my newest release, Selfish.

This song is about fighting with depression and how that fight never ends. Some days you win and some days you lose. It’s about cherishing every last bit of the days you feel like yourself and not letting the days that sadness consume you become all that you are. Please share this video with someone who is sad, it might help them out.

This song is for weirdos like me who only fit in inside dirty basements and living rooms alongside other weirdos, listening to weirdos express themselves through music (and weed). More importantly, this song is for Oneonta and all of my friends. I love you.
