Having discovered a passion for music at the tender age of nine, Steve Morano's sound has developed over the intervening years to fall in to the Folk, Americana and Singer Songwriter bracket. He has really honed that style and song writing over the last few years, both singing in bands and performing as a solo artist in the UK, Europe and the US. A regular at Guilfest over the last 5 years and standout performances around London and the South of England are now being translated into a new album titled 'Jackson's Corner', featuring a full ensemble of talented Berkshire based musicians, that will be released in the Autumn of 2012.

Jack Cade and the Everyday Sinners
Jack Cade and the Everyday Sinners are an Americana outfit from Reading, there debut album came out on Collision in 2011... this is what Rebel Rod Ames had to say about it:
'Rebel' Rod Ames at From Under The Basement
http://fromunderthebasement.blogspot.com (read the full review)
"Take about two cups of Johnny Cash add a dash or two of Tom Waits, and a smidgen of the psychobilly or punk roots that began molding him years ago, and you have Jack Cade."
"I love this album for so many reasons. It’s honky-tonk or is it? It’s country, or is it? It’s blues, or is it? It continuously keeps the listener guessing. I on the other hand, after hearing the first track, the title cut, “This Fiery Road”, decided not to categorize, but instead, simply enjoy this extremely unique brand of whatever it is." By 'Rebel' Rod Ames
