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

Reblog and spread the word if you have followers in the areas I’m playing. Lots of news on some late spring shows and full length stuff to come as well as some new songs to post! Thanks for all of the support, it means the world to me.
