Steve Conte may be best known as the guitarist with New York Dolls, Willy DeVille, Michael Monroe and Company Of Wolves - or perhaps as the singer with Paul Simon, Yoko Kanno, Crown Jewels and The Contes. The bottom line is, Conte is no slouch – as a musician or a rock and roller.

Working between records & tours as lead guitarist/backing singer with The Michael Monroe Band, Steve records and tours with his band The Crazy Truth.
Sonically, The Crazy Truth lies somewhere between The Stooges and The Stones versus Morphine and Tom Waits. The overall vibe is best described by Conte as “classic roots with a modern twist.” This was demonstrated brilliantly on the bands eponymously titled debut album.

Steve Conte delivers the power, soul and raunch. He’s a runaway guitar hero on the edge of falling apart – with the voice of a derelict angel. Drummer Phil Stewart is equal parts Max Roach and Keith Moon while bassist Leeko was weaned on The Clash and old school reggae.

There is very little genuine rock and roll out there at the moment – but Steve Conte has hit the nail on the head with this one!” — Steve Lillywhite, Producer (U2, Rolling Stones)
