Jason Steed and Creosote – Blacksmoke from the deserts of Tucson (for fans of Giant Sand or Calexico)

Jason Steed is the brains and spirit behind the music of Creosote. He’s got a couple of records to his name including the currently available Blacksmoke. Although recorded in 2001 Blacksmoke has been remastered and prepped for a wider release. Blacksmoke features Joey Burns from Giant Sand and Calexico on standup bass and Tim Gallagher of Topless Opry on pedal steel and dobro.

Like Giant Sand’s music this band comes out of the deserts of Tucson and it shows. There’s a dry rough hewn edge to the songs and to Jason’s singing. Creosote has already finished the followup to Blacksmoke titled How Bad Could It Kill Me and is just looking for a label. Contact Jason Steed through his website if you’re interested. Here’s two from that unreleased new disc and two demos from Blacksmoke. Buy Blacksmoke from Miles Of Music here.
