The Steven Blane Band has completed a new Nashville album entitled "Motel Blue" which will to be released in April 2018. It features Rachel Horter a Nashville recording artist on many of the vocals. Prior to that Steven has released four two albums. His last two Nashville recorded album, "I Confess" and his Lake Worth, Florida recorded in-a-shed album, "The Shed Sessions" have received a lot of airplay on Folk Radio Stations across the country.

As a young boy in Jersey City, his grandma stood him on a table at a Knights of Pythias Talent Show. Singing “Delilah,” Tom Jones style, in front of a supportive audience left a profound effect on Steven. Years later, when college was over, he plotted his escape to NYC. Once there, he was cast in a Broadway Show as a guitar playing gypsy. (He still has his Actor's Equity and SAG cards 🙂

He lived on 8th Street in the Village in NYC and played gigs at lots of bars. He also wrote an Off-Off Broadway Rock Opera and had one of his songs performed on the original "Star Search." He decided to ply his trade as a singer-songwriter and move to Nashville. So he loaded up his blue VW bug (which was missing pieces of it's floor) and headed down the road. 100 miles later he turned around, went back to NYC, struggled as an artist for a few more years, then married the love of his life and became an audio-book producer.

He also became a Cantor and a Rabbi.

Steven writes and performs in the Americana genre and his songs and lyrics reflect his musings on relationships, faith, love and fantasy. Steven plays guitar, piano and ukulele and performs as a solo artist or with his band.
The Balboans
The Balboans
the balboans were born from the noodlings of singer Loam Disher and songwriter Robb Bruns many moons ago. The arrival of brother Torello Disher cemented the deal and with the addition of Tate Overton they became a band, playing all the NYC institutions; CBGB's, the Don Hills, The Continental. As the clubs changed so did the band, but the anchor of Loam and Tate remained. Mike Crehore joined and with his monster guitar chops helped fully realize the classic American rock sound they had been cultivating. The band now includes trumpeter/percussionist Mark Altman and drummer Jim Mussen.

Harmonies, barn burning grooves and passionate ballads bring to mind favorite acts of the past while the city itself continuously inspires new and original heartfelt rock. Rev the engine, take the top down and sing along to the unique sound that feels like an old friend.
