“Steve Conte is one of the best kept secrets of the music business - but hopefully his new album will fix that.”
- Steve Lillywhite (Producer; Rolling Stones, Johnny Thunders, XTC, U2)

The NYC based "triple-threat" (guitarist/singer/songwriter) Steve Conte is an artist you've probably heard many times without even realizing it.

As a solo artist and with his bands; Company Of Wolves, Crown Jewels, The Contes & The Crazy Truth, his songs, voice & guitar riffs have been in the public's consciousness since 1990; on major radio stations, MTV, feature films, television programs & anime series. His albums burn with raw, passionate rock 'n' roll and his live shows blend soulful-singing, story-telling songs and blinding guitar playing. You might call it, "Americana With Attitude."

Besides a rich solo career, Conte is a former member of the legendary New York Dolls and has also recorded/toured with Willy DeVille, Billy Squier, Paul Simon, Peter Wolf & Wille Nile. Steve is currently lead guitarist/songwriter/backing vocalist for legendary Hanoi Rocks frontman, Michael Monroe.

His most recent solo release, International Cover-Up is a collection of songs written by some of his favorites; Tom Waits, John Lennon, Willy DeVille, Jagger/Richards and more. The album has been described as “High energy and tough” by Elmore Magazine and has spawned for Conte, a second Coolest Song Of The Year on Little Steven's Underground Garage Radio, the punky, "Somebody's Gonna Get Their Head Kicked In Tonight".

His first "Coolest Song" came in 2014 when Van Zandt picked up on his solo debut, Steve Conte NYC and named the track "OK DJ" the #2 Song Of The Year, just behind Springsteen's #1.

“The 'Steve Conte NYC' album is, without a doubt, one of the best records of the year!”
- Little Steven Van Zandt

In addition to performing live in NYC and around the world, Steve is currently producing music for other artists and doing recording sessions as a studio guitarist & singer.

Packing more rock savvy than most members of the alterna-rock Boy’s Club and more melody than her Riot Grrrl counterparts, the rhythms and riffs of Palmyra Delran’s songs stand out in the punk rock landscape. Wielding her guitar like a carving knife and using her voice as the most potent of spices, she sprinkles her music liberally with powerful rhythms and textures, garnishing it with sugary melodies and acerbic lyrics.

As the founder, songwriter and creative soul of “trashy pop band” The Friggs, Palmyra built a working model for the ideal punk girl group. They released debut CD "Rock Candy" and singles collection "Today is Tomorrow's Yesterday", toured incessantly throughout the ‘90s, opening for the Selecter, the Ramones, Cheap Trick among others, and were included in the movies "Superbad", "Jawbreaker", "Lipstick & Dynamite", and "Prey for Rock & Roll".

On her 2008 solo debut EP titled "She Digs the Ride", Palmyra flirts with charm, surf rock, dysfunctional relationships, and solid guitar grooves. Her song "Baby Should Have Known Better" was picked by Little Steven as the "Coolest Song in the World" in November '08, then voted "Coolest Song of 2008" by Underground Garage listeners.

2011 will begin with Palmyra on a tour of Scandinavia with Stupidity (Sweden), & the Cocktail Slippers (Norway). Her new digital single "Lies For You" is a sample of what to expect on the next full length Palmyra Delran CD "You Are What You Absorb" due out later in the year.
