David Steele


I am working on a project (in Vancouver) with a group of talented musicians (2 vocalists, a keys player/singer, guitarist, drummer and yours truly on bass). We have a set of soulful rock ‘n’ roll covers (including material by Sharon Jones, Neal Francis, Theo Katzman, Scary Pockets, Ray LaMontagne, Seratones, Orgone) that we’re looking to expand on, rehearse and play some shows.
If you play drums and are up for soulful grooves, hit me up and we'll arrange a session.
