How did you get started in the music industry?
What inspires your music?
I’m inspired by a lot of things… that’s an ever changing thing. To me, inspiration always comes from real life. My most recent album “Steel Town” is heavily inspired by my hometown and the moments and people who made me who I am.
Tell us about your latest album, Steel Town.
Well I guess I already started answering that one haha. Half of the record is about looking back, and the other half is about fighting to be present and in the moment. I wanted to make a record that you could listen to from start to finish so there is a little bit of everything in there… heartbreak, hometowns, new love, true love, basement bars, the simple things, and growing up. It’s all in there.
What’s a day in your life like?
On the road: wake up, get some coffee at a gas station, drive a little bit, get to the venue, load-in, soundcheck, maybe go find a cool local spot to eat, explore, play a show, hang with fans, load up the trailer, have a beer(s) and maybe some pizza, then go to bed, wake up, and do it again!!
Do you have a final message you’d like to share with your fans?
I appreciate everyone out there who has let my music be a small part of your life. It really is an honor. I hope to see you at a show soon! Check stevemoakler.com/
