Steve Gunn is a New York-based guitarist and songwriter. With a career spanning nearly fifteen years, Steve has produced volumes of critically acclaimed solo, duo, and ensemble recordings. His albums represent milestones of contemporary guitar-driven material, and forward thinking songwriting. Steve has steadily processed his inspirations into a singular, virtuosic stream. Close listening reveals the influence of blues, folk, ecstatic free jazz, and psych in his continually unfolding output. In 2016 Steve released, ‘Eyes On The Lines’, his first album for Matador Records which the Washington Post called, “so intimate and so mysteriously distant all at once”. In January 2019 he followed it up with his breakthrough album, ‘The Unseen In Between’ and in August of 2021, comes his most realized effort to date in ‘Other You’. It was recorded during two visits to Los Angeles in late 2020 and early 2021. The album was made with veteran producer Rob Schnapf (Beck, Elliott Smith, Cass McCombs, Kurt Vile) at his Mant Studios alongside musician and co-producer Justin Tripp, whose credits include appearances on Gunn’s ‘Time Off’ and ‘Way Out Weather’.
