Take the ringing voice of a proud viking, the charm of an expert narrator, the dramatic charm of a woodcutter and the feverish energy of a sailor, add these ingredients to a fermenting barrel and the end result is the style of the Steady Swagger , in two words “Whiskey Billie”; robust, charismatic and aggressively fun. It’s folk rock that effortlessly interweaves the sounds of punk guitar, jazz, rhythms of waltz, lesser edifying shades and hip-hop, all keeping a coherent unit sound.
The constant Swagger is a power trio originally from Montreal. Their live performances have gradually become an energy experience shared between artists and the public. They have been compared to the likes of Tom Waits, Primus and Gogol Bordello due to their baritone voices, original compositions and fevered energy.Their music is explosive like gunpowder!
Chris Pierce & Sunny War had a friend in common, musician/producer Jared Faber.
Faber thought the two should meet and that they might hit it off. . . maybe there was some music to be made amongst them.Pierce, War and Faber got together at Faber’s Silver Lake studio to meet and out of that initial meeting, the first song written and recorded by the three was born entitled “Any Day Now”. They all felt so inspired by the luck of their first encounter that they tried to repeat it…to see if lightning could indeed strike twice. Each time they got together they wrote and recorded what would ultimately become their debut EP, the self titled “War & Pierce”.
