Steel Toed Slippers
Steel Toed Slippers
Will Nicoll, Matt Moss, and Nick Maury, also known as Steel Toed Slippers, have risen from the roots of Redwoods in Humboldt County to bring the world a tall and sturdy serving of classic American rock soiled in soul, blues, and jazz influences. The trio recently released their debut self-titled album co-produced by Kenny Gradney (Little
Feat) and eight-time Grammy award winning guitarist, Johnny Lee Schell (Bonnie Raitt, BB King, Lucinda Williams, Taj Mahal).

Over the eleven track skeleton, STS casually kicks the current blues rock equation to the curb and replaces the popular stripped down garage vibe with a full bodied blend of pop, funk, boogie, soul, and jazz. Instead of a one trick pony that trots on one style and sound, STS offer a more versatile ride with upbeat boogies (Laystep, Lookdown, First Encounter); mellow grooves (Here Comes, Keeper); and accessible singles (Fading, Beyond Lock) that mix a multitude of styles and sounds from different eras, but are catchy enough for modern day fans.

As soon as their debut album faded into fuzz, I knew what their moniker meant. A steel toed slipper is relaxed but grounded, chill but steady. Steel Toed Slippers— a band that can best be described as The Spin Doctors, Drive By Truckers, and Little Feat dancing in the forest— are here to stay and grow, much like the Redwoods that surrounded their youth.
