THE STEADY REBELS RELEASE NEW SINGLE GRAVITY WITH OFFICIAL VIDEO
On the wake of their debut EP Motion, The Steady Rebels have just released their new single Gravity, with an official video. Directed by Philip Harris Designs, the video takes the viewer from dirt roads to a house concert, as it follows the group on their journey to the show.
Both the single and EP are now available for download on iTunes. "MOTION” shouts their mission statement outright. An inclination to keep people moving onward, whether it be through positive action, increasing awareness, or even dance.
2014 has shaped up to be a very positive year for the group, which began with the Humber College Battle of the Bands on February 28th, where they took home first place. Then they released their EP in May, which propelled them to perform across southern Ontario at the Irie Music Festival Mississauga, Sheridan College Residence Night at The Marquee, The Cameron House in Toronto with local band Fun Fact, Burlington~Rib fest – Merriam Music Jamfest, and the Rad Brothers in Milton, ON.
The Steady Rebels will be taking their reggae sound to the KOI Music Festival in Kitchener on September 20th at Bobby O’Brien’s and will hit the stage at 8PM for a 30 minute set. Following the
festival performance, fans can see them at Failte Irish Pub in Mississauga on September 26th and during Indie Week in October in Toronto (details to be announced).
The 7-piece alternative reggae group formed in Mississauga, Ontario - with a blend of sax, keys, drums, percussion, guitar, bass, and vocals. Built around a core of friends with history, they are quickly becoming recognized for their musically explosive and articulate anthems. The Steady Rebels use their unique instrumentation to experiment and incorporate other genres like Jazz, Blues, and Funk into their distinct sound.
The Steady Rebels were formed after lead singer Sean Feltoe was diagnosed with a blood disorder called Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis and was hospitalized in Cincinnati for 7 months. Music was a driving factor in the recovery and mental well being of Sean throughout this traumatic time and when he returned to Mississauga feeling much better and with his new found love of reggae music, Sean contacted high school friend Damian Hercules (drums) and decided to form The Steady Rebels. Other members in the group include Brec Hanson (guitar), Mike Crupi (bass), Mike Glendon (sax), Ryan Luke (percussion) and Darryl Joseph-Dennie (keys).
“Music is about discovery, who knows where the Rebels talent will take us”. – Sean Feltoe
