Stephen Simmons was raised in the small town of Woodbury, Tennessee. His mother was a schoolteacher and his father held a factory job. In his family, they were the first generation that
didn’t work the farm. As a songwriter and Ten years as a Road Dog, Stephen’s vision has grown to entail more than just reflections of rural America. The songs on his recordings, deal with existential realities that are familiar to country and city dwellers alike: redemption, heartbreak, hangovers and the loneliness of the road. Stephen’s records: Last Call, Drink Ring Jesus, Something In Between, The Blame’s On U.S., Girls, The Big Show and Hearsay (which were compared to everyone from Johnny Cash to Ryan Adams) combine virtuosic songcraft and musicianship with unparalleled artistic honesty. His work has been covered by Mojo Music, Uncut, and The Washington Post.
His most recent albums have been released by USA indie label Lower 40 Records and in Europe on Germany’s premiere roots label; Blue Rose Records.
On Oct 8th he took off for his Fall 2014 of Europe/UK Tour beginning with solo shows in The Netherlands, Norway, UK & Ireland and then meeting up with his band from Nashville in Germany for a week of shows.
