Vevo Meets: Steve Moakler. 2017
Steve Moakler has been ready for his close-up since he was a kid in the suburbs of Pittsburgh – riding in the family station wagon, getting lost in the songs on the radio, and dreaming about singing for his classmates in the school auditorium. He started chasing his dream when he moved to Nashville after high school. His love of rock and country forge his sound. Three albums later he’s built a rep writing songs for Dierks Bentley (“Riser”), Ashley Monroe, and Kellie Pickler – “I don’t know if I’ve had a single big break. I feel like my career has been a series of little breaks,” he says.
He arrived at Vevo Meets session to celebrated the arrival of his new album, ‘Steel Town.’ «I’ve had the title in my head for a long time,” he says. “But I’ve been very intimidated; where I’m from means so much to me, and there’s a lot of pride in Pittsburgh and in the Rust Belt. I wanted to honor that. This is my fourth album, but it feels like in a lot of ways, it’s the first time I’m ever going back and talking about the earlier chapters of my life and where I’m from.” So far, there have been two videos released from the disc, “Wheels” and “Suitcase.”
Check ‘Vevo Meets’ to learn about Moakler’s roots, and learn how his hobby of building birdhouses has more impact that simply relaxing on his off-hours.
