Antry and Joyride

Just back from a rousing performance at Austin’s SXSW, Joyride is a critically acclaimed Blues/Rock band that cover some familiar party music as well as lead singer Steve Antry’s internationally charting rockin’ blues, characterized by strong guitars and keyboard and Antry’s three-octave vocal range. ANTRY’s debut album met with critical acclaim around the world and stayed on the International Blues/Rock charts (Roots Music Report) for over nine months (reaching #1 in Oklahoma and #7 Worldwide). His band, Joyride, made it to Memphis in January to compete against the best blues bands in the world, having been victorious at the Cain’s Ballroom Blues Challenge. Antry’s album “mixes some beautiful gospel and country flavors in with some very cool blues rock,” says Professor Johnny P. of Professor Johnny P’s Juke Joint. On the album cover says the professor “I saw the grizzled visage of Steve Antry looking back at me with the defiant look of an old-time preacher getting ready to wrestle the devil to the ground.” Joyride’s old soul is making new waves in the blues!

It brings his career to new heights, the accrued accomplishment derived from a fifteen year journey that spans six previous independent releases -- a steady diet of touring and solo performances, and continuing praise from his peers.
