Steel Train BlogHi.

It\'s May 15th, and a horrible day in New York. Hope it\'s better wherever this
is being read. A lot has been going on with us, so here goes:

Last we spoke was after the Robert Randolph dates, and since then we have
been in our home studio non stop recording demos for our new record.
Since the last update, the record has really taken shape, and we are up
to about 15 demos (2 of which are on this site - \"Alone On The Sea\" and
\"If I Leave You Travlin\").

Things are really...

Fan reports in: Tonight at the Steel Train show at the William Pitt Union in Pittsburgh, PA, the band was out of this world amazing. They played for about and hour and a half and blew everyone away.
