Steel Blossoms (from the album Steel Blossoms available on Billy Jam Records)
The “Heroine” in the song from Steel Blossoms achieves greatness only in opioid dreams, seeing bravery as ending the vicious cycle of a junkie. The fine line between “Pick Me Up” and one more of the high of the moment becomes the question the Steel Blossoms ponder as the pair point fingers (“You’re the Reason I Drink”), offer a DIY guide for death (“Killed a Man”), stir the rumor mill (“Trailer Neighbor”), and lay down laws for love (“You Ain’t Sleeping Over”). No one can ever accuse Steel Blossoms of passive/aggressive behavior as the pair make full disclosure their mantra on the recently self-titled release.
Former elementary school teachers Sara Zebley and Hayley Prosser met at a music festival in their home state of Pennsylvania, playing in the local Pittsburgh music scene before relocating to Nashville. The pair let tenderness take the lead on “Innocent” recalling a gentler time before the world pissed on their parade as the Steel Blossoms hear I-65 sing a sad song in “Kentucky’s Never Been This Far from Tennessee” while they cross “County Line” into the side of town sitting in the shadow of trouble. They plot “Revenge” on a coiling fiddle riff channeling the after-life sentiments of Steel Blossoms.
