After years of making records with such diverse artists as New York Dolls, Maceo Parker, Michael Monroe, Peter Wolf, Yoko Kanno and Billy Squier, NYC guitarist/singer/songwriter Steve Conte is going out on his own!

“The Steve Conte NYC Album” delivers the guitar, vocal and songwriting skills you know from his previous bands; Steve Conte & The Crazy Truth, Crown Jewels, The Contes and Company Of Wolves and his sideman work with Willy DeVille, Paul Simon, Eric Burdon and Willie Nile.

Pre-order the new album here with your pledge!


“Hey everybody – Steve here to tell you how psyched I am to be making my new record for and with all of you through PledgeMusic! This 10 song album will feature some of my best writing to date. Songs that hold up in a solo acoustic performance – but recorded with a totally rockin’ band.”

“Up until now I’ve always had some sort of band to collaborate with but this time out I wanted to do something as a solo artist…with a bunch of friends!”

And that “bunch of friends” includes some serious talent. Joining Steve are members of Foo Fighters, The Wildhearts, New York Dolls, Ryan Adams & The Cardinals, Hanoi Rocks, Georgia Satellites, Alice Cooper, Mink DeVille, Hellacopters, The Urban Voodoo Machine, Mott The Hoople, Backyard Babies, The Wallflowers, Company Of Wolves, Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes, Ian Hunter, John Mellencamp, Bruce Springsteen and Patti Smith.

So what do you get for your Pledge? You get “The Steve Conte NYC Album” digital download, frequent photo and video updates from the studio sessions – and the satisfaction that you’re supporting the actual artist and not “the man”.

There are some cool exclusives and bundles you can get here too if you desire the more “unique” stuff. Check out the links on the right side of this page.

Funds raised by this campaign will be used for the album’s mixing and mastering, by the team of Niko Bolas (Neil Young, Keith Richards) and Richard Dodd (Tom Petty, Counting Crows) as well as for music videos and promotion.

“I’m super excited about this project! It’s has been a long time coming and I can’t wait to share it with you all. I hope you’ll join me in making The Steve Conte NYC Album! Let’s do this together!!”

Many thanks,

SC
