As a die-hard rockin’ performer, hit songwriter and producer, Jeffrey Steele is just getting started. With his current album ”Hell On Wheels” released March 2006, and a greatest hits coming summer of ’07, Jeffrey is hitting the ground running. Among his many accolades over the past few years Jeffrey has been named BMI Songwriter of the year for 2003 and NSAI writer of the year for 2003, 2005, and 2006. His number one song “What Hurts The Most” recorded by Rascall Flatts was nominated for a Grammy for best country song and received a BMI pop award as well. If that wasn’t enough, BMI recently awarded Jeffrey for over 17 million airplays for hits on such artists as Montgomery Gentry, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Trace Adkins, LeAnn Rimes, Rascal Flatts, VanZant and many others.
If Jeffrey is not writing a hit song, he is probably producing or performing one! Jeffrey lent his producing skills on the Montgomery Gentry album My Town, and Some People Change and the recent Keith Anderson album XXL. Jeffrey is currently producing the new Keith Anderson project for ’07. Jeffrey also spends time on the road promoting his own material and playing dates with such artists as VanZant, Delbert McClinton, Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, and Lynyrd Skynyrd. While he is back in Nashville writing he is also running his publishing company 3 Ring Circus Music and it’s hit writers who have recently enjoyed success with “My Wish,” “Brand New Girlfriend,” “Help Somebody” and “Everytime I Hear Your Name.”
The former lead singer of the group Boy Howdy moved to Nashville in 1994. The last of 5 kids born in Burbank, California, Jeffrey’s upbringing was filled with every type of music possible. From Led Zeppelin and the Beatles, all the way to Hank Williams and Waylon Jennings. As Jeffrey continues to crank out the hits, whether it is on paper, behind the glass, or on stage, he is constantly looking for what’s next, “Constant friction is what it’s all about. Constant friction.” – Jeffrey Steele
