The Linsmore Tavern (1298 Danforth Ave) is excited to welcome back a fantastic Indie band, Redsteps for a night of Country, Rock 'n' Roll, Folk and Blues on Thursday June 8th! Redsteps have played a couple of great shows at the Linsmore in the past and have absolutely blew everyone away! Redsteps will be playing that evening and they will bring their bluesy, country-tinged rock'n'roll music to the Linsmore Tavern and kicking off live music for 2017!
REDSTEPS are a Toronto, ON based band playing a mix of harmony laden rock and roll, folk, country, and blues tunes. Gigging relentlessly over the three past years, they have recorded and released a three song self-titled EP as well as a full-length eponymous debut album, released in June 2014. Belting out three-part harmonies and backed by lively, guitar-driven grooves, they embrace a sound that reflects both city and country. With reverence for classics like The Band and Neil Young, as well as modern rockers Wilco and Ryan Adams, REDSTEPS provide an emotional, rootsy feel with a healthy dose of honest rock ’n’ roll.
Since the band’s inception REDSTEPS have crafted their sound by singing songs late into the night, and refined their performance with a steady regimen of gigging. They’ve won over crowds of all sizes, from classic Toronto venues such as the Drake Hotel and the Cameron House, to festivals like Steam Whistle’s Roundhouse Craft Beer Fest.
Their short EP was recorded at both Verge Music Lab and Harris Institute in 2012. Over the next year they began working with Mike Langford, owner and engineer of The Pawnshop Studio in Kensington Market; they were able to collaborate in the studio with Mike on their first full-length album, while tracking in D.I.Y. fashion at their rehearsal space near Queen St. West!
