“The compositions are great, the vocals are exceptional, and they just frankly ought to have more attention.” -Ear to the Ground Music
“Perfectly in sync vocals against a lush, roots background prove that these men have come together to form a tight knit musical group that understands each other’s strengths, allowing them shine.”
– Elmore Magazine
Steamboats is an ensemble of picker-singer-songwriters who combine reverence for the American vocal group with a progressive sensibility all their own. Singers Nick Throop, Mario Rincon and Jon Jaffee hone gospel and a capella backgrounds, their soaring harmonies reminiscent of The Soul Stirrers and Fleet Foxes alike. Their debut EP (“Steamboats,” 2015) features accordionist Kate Dunphy of Carte Blanche and drummer Jon Shiffman of Bleachers.
