Steve Sola

Steve Sola plays Americana-influenced rock and blues in a solo act that’s “at turns rowdy and raucous as well as introspective and melancholy.” With influences like Tom Waits, Nick Cave and Leonard Cohen, the songwriting has a darker side. “But, like, that sort of stuff — a little less sad,” Sola says with a laugh. “I tend to lean toward a gritty feel and strong, heartfelt songwriting.” Since the musician has been writing and playing in bands across several styles for the past decade, he plays a wide range within his genre. His typical solo setup is a kick drum, hi-hat and guitar.
