Steven Sedalia is an emerging singer-songwriter forging a sunkissed roots folk fusion sound with songs varying from foot stomping mountain music, through positive upbeat celebrations, to gentle powerful love songs. Comparable to the artists he has played alongside in the past year, Nahko & Medicine for the People, Xavier Rudd, Mike Love; Sedalia carves out his own niche in the conscious roots music genres. Transplanted from the mountains of North Carolina to the island of Kauai, the music is not like anything you’ve heard before, mixing Appalachian twang with devotional music and island roots. The sound is colored by emotional acoustic guitar, organic percussion, and a bright mellow vocal style, flavored with imagery inspired by the natural world, symbolism from ancient traditions, and an attention to the beautiful. Touring solo, or with his full band, the live performance pumps with high energy and shares the gift of unflinching compassion.
