Steve Power.jpg
Based in Austin, Texas, Steve Power is a professional singer-songwriter and musician.

Since then he has:  crisscrossed the United States, hitching from coast to coast and border to border; played harmonica with John Lee Hooker; sung with Joe Cocker; stood as onstage bodyguard to Little Richard; shared the stage with Jesse “Guitar” Taylor, Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top), Bobby Mack, and Pinetop Perkins; was named U.R.D.A. Musician of the Year; released three albums and two EPs of critically acclaimed original material; received written praise from Elwood Blues; performed from brothels to stadiums on two continents; wrote interviews for David Crosby, Bill Wyman and Tom Jones; survived attempted shootings, car wrecks and various governments; and has told more stories than Schehherazade, never once letting the truth get in the way.
