The Steady Swagger


The Steady Swagger est un power trio composé de deux corsaires armés d’une contrebasse et d’une six corde acoustique qui se laisse emporter par les flots rythmiques d’une batterie domptée par une jeune demoiselle-pirate. Deux voix barytons, éraillées et saturées de whisky sec, et une énergie brute sur la scène taille de grands sourires sur les visages des hommes, des femmes et des enfants sur place. Provenant de Montréal, le trio se définit par un son Whiskeybillie; un heureux mélange de folk sale, de rock-gitan et de jazz-punk, comme si Gogol Bordello, Tom Waits et Primus avaient longtemps fermentés dans un vieux tonneau de chêne calciné. Joyeux et agressif, ils font assurément taper du pied.

The Steady Swagger is a power trio fronted by two mainland pirates armed with an upright bass and acoustic guitar, and anchored by the rhythmic flow of the damsel on the drums. Two whiskey soaked baritone voices worthy of the roughest terrain and a raw onstage energy forge the fundamental backbone that consistently carves smiles on men, women and children alike. Based out of Montreal they play music self defined as Whiskeybillie; dirty folk rock reminiscent of Gogol Bordello, Tom Waits and Primus fermenting in a charred oak cask, it is aggressively fun and has the power to get any feet stomping. |
