Canadian Folk N' Roll Band The Plain Steel Releases First LP, “Folk N' Roll”

The Plain Steel, a rock/folk ensemble from Hamilton, Ontario, have released their first feature-length album, “Folk n' Roll,” on vinyl and digital media. The band is a quintet mainly comprised of percussion, electric guitar, violin, viola, and cello. Their raw groove is part rock n' roll, part North American folk music, resulting in an edgy sound that earnestly represents the modern culmination of traditional folk. Their drums are groovy and driving, their strings warm and jovial, accented with neither too much fiddle nor too much chamber-music classicism. Their bass and lead guitar work lies somewhere between Creedence Clearwater and the Beach Boys, which mix blends far more intuitively than one might suppose. Their vocals are natural and rich, precise yet unrefined, delivered with the tone and masculinity of a less gregarious Jim Morrison.

Lyrically, their themes are largely inspired by on-the-road experiences a-la Jack Kerouac, and the kind of Americana that has been fueling the folk experience since before it was called 'folk.' The motifs evoked by such artists as Joan Baez and Bob Dylan are certainly present in the Plain Steel's writing, but the seasoned listener will also hear the more rock-engendered psychadelia of Pink Floyd, and the steel-sledgehammer tonalities of the Rolling Stones. The Plain Steel has less obvious undercurrents similar to the forest-wandering anthems of Nick Drake, too, as well as an authenticity like that of famous Maine maritime traditionalists, Schooner Fare. In short, the Plain Steel has something for any music fan with a penchant for legitimate folk music and a love of rock n' roll.

The Plain Steel have existed since 1999 in various incarnations. They have at times been a studio project, a trio, and a quartet, among other lineups. As an independent group of musicians composing, producing, manufacturing and distributing their releases without the direction of mainstream music businessmen, their unique sound stands absolutely unadulterated by industry producers or engineers, the way true folk music has always been.

The Plain Steel's premiere LP, “Folk n’ Roll,” will both assert their prominence in the thrumming Canadian independent music scene and showcase their innovative style to be appreciated abroad. “Folk ‘n’ Roll” is currently available on black or limited-edition clear vinyl at Hammer City Records (Hamilton, ON) as well as for downloading via iTunes, similar services online.
