Steep Ravine

Band Members: 
Andy O'Brien - Mandolin
Simon Linsteadt - Guitar
Jan Purat - Fiddle
Alex Bice - Bass
Steep Ravine is a folk and roots acoustic quartet hailing from the San Francisco Bay Area. Blending equal parts poetic lyricism, deft string-playing, and elements of folk, bluegrass, and gypsy swing, Steep Ravine explores compelling new directions while paying homage to the spirited Northern California landscape the band calls home. TRAMPIN’ ON, the quartet’s debut album of originals, blends melodic verse, tight harmonies, and rich instrumentals while showcasing the diverse musical backgrounds of the band mates, which also encompass classical, jazz, and funk.

Guitarist and lead vocalist Simon Linsteadt and violinist Jan Purat began playing music together back in high school and later moved on to study music at UC Santa Cruz, where they fortuitously met mandolinist Andy O’Brien and bassist Alex Bice. Their riveting live performances catch audiences by surprise with the sheer acoustic power of their collaborative sound, a mix of soulful original tunes, fiery instrumentals, and well arranged bluegrass songs.
