About The Band

The Steadies aren't invited to the party---they are the party. This high-energy Canadian power trio mixes pop-rock with world-beat, funk and reggae, creating a sound they’ve dubbed, ‘island-rock’. The Western Canada-based group performs over one hundred festivals and clubs internationally every year and have the unique ability to appeal to diverse audiences of all ages, genders, races, and genres. The Steadies also have an abundance of experience and pedigree. as frontman Earl Pereira is a 3-Time JUNO Award Nominee, 9-Time WCMA winner, and has toured opening for music icons The Rolling Stones, The Roots, The Tragically Hip while talented drummer/studio engineer Kurtis Schultz, mixes the band's world-class recordings. After the announcement of guitarist Jesse James Clark joining the group in September 2018, the newly formed trio headed overseas for their first European tour across Italy, Austria, and Germany. By the end of year, The Steadies had received a wave of international press including features on TMZ, Hollywood.com, Stuff New Zealand, CBC, Metro UK after a video went viral of Riverdale star KJ Apa (Archie Andrews) jamming with the band at their show in Vancouver. With that momentum heading into 2019, The Steadies continued with recording their new album Tiro De Leone, which was released in November 2019. Then disaster struck in March 2020 when the world shut down due to Covid-19. Although by the Summer and through the Fall, the boys managed to tour across Western Canada which earned them a feature story in Canadian Musician Magazine. And then the opportunity The Steadies have been working towards for years finally came and the band signed their first record deal with Vancouver based Bristol Records who are partners with Sony The Orchard & Copperline Music Group in Nashville. A new single 'Ghosted (remix) feat. Emanali & The Gaff is due for a  May 7 2020 release followed by a July single 'Two feat. Alle Bernardi', then a new album in Fall 2021!

The Steadies’ last release 2016's Love Revolution has received national radio play on CBC, over 200,000 online views, and landed the band featured articles in Canadian Musician Magazine and Brooklyn NY based music magazine Punchland. Previous releases have garnered a top 50 hit on pop radio and a WCMA nomination. In May 2017 The Steadies completed a successful 17-date tour of China & South Korea and shortly after lost their founding member and guitarist Justin 'Juice' Lee to a tragic brain aneurysm. With help from their musician friends, Pereira and drummer Schultz toured across Canada in honour of Lee calling it the For Juice With Love Tour
