Texas Music Awards Hall-of-Famer Freddie Steady Krc comes by his name honestly. This singer / songwriter / guitarist / drummer / renaissance Texan has plied his musical wares around the world the past few decades. A charismatic live performer, Krc wins over any audience with his captivating original songs and engaging stage presence.
His first love was rock and roll, which had first found its way into his native Southeast Texas by way of the Beatles. By the time he hit Austin, he was also passionate about the Tex-Mex mix of the Sir Douglas Quintet (his first concert), the psychedelic sounds of rock innovator
s like the 13th Floor Elevators, and the soulful folk of singer/songwriters like B. W. Stevenson and Jerry Jeff Walker. Freddie Steady would eventually work as a band member with each of these artists, all while fueling his own musical ideas.
Whether playing electric or acoustic, large hall or house concert, Freddie’s always rocking, always steady.
From psychedelic rock to punk to country, this jack-of-all-genres plays it all with a panache reminiscent of the late, great Sir Doug.
