Steam Shed's musical style ranges from blues to jazz to complex mergers of rock and opera to steampunk, the lyrics bittersweet with themes of love and life gone wrong with the occasional diversion into the thrill seeking hobbies of the band members…

Steam Shed began as a vehicle for a long term recording project by guitarist Richard Pellew. Tempting old friends, bassist Doug Irvine and drummer Paul Skidmore out of their respective retirements following successful professional musical careers, the band created a catalogue of original material that reflected their joint musical backgrounds.

Singer and pianist Heather Jay joined the line-up in 2016, her vast vocal and stylistic range propelling the band from recording project to live act. The band also reinvent a handful of covers that reflect their own musical influences.

Heather and Richard also take Steam Shed out as a duo, appearing recently at the Open Mic session at the Village Pump @The Lamb in Trowbridge, where they performed a very warmly received acoustic set.

Hiya - thank you for your kind words. When the guitarist wrote the music it was a kind of skit on the Happy Mondays. We kept the name because we used a bit of the Vivaldi Gloria which uses the word 'miserere' We're not miserable at all :)

Something a bit different from Steam Shed. A dance-style track that Richard wrote and put together a little while ago and to which - last year - Heather added bits of Vivaldi.
