2022 WA State IBC winner
2016 Telluride brews and Brews Festival acoustic blues competition Winner
Steve Itterly is a singer-songwriter with a penchant for conjuring up images we all find familiar. He draws from a deep well of American musical traditions and delivers a sincere down-home vibe like a true storyteller.His music draws upon the rich tapestry of honest rhythms falling somewhere between early jazz, blues, swing, folk and the tangible comforts of home. Bridging the likes of Woody Guthrie and Piedmont Blues, his lyrics are anchored by the rustic, country texture in his voice. His music is compared to the talents of John Prine and with a voice just this side of the gravel, he ‘sounds a bit like old Bob Dylan’.
His musical calling began as an early teen. Introduced to Dylan, John Hurt, and Robert Johnson by his father, Steve felt moved by these legends, their passion, and the raw potential of their guitar and vocal styles. Itterly called New York home until venturing to Boston after college where he studied country-blues and ragtime guitar with local all stars: Paul Rishell and George Radcliff Thomas. It was in Colorado though, that Steve found his own voice and started writing songs.
Steve is the winner of the 2016 Telluride Blues and Brews Festival’s, Acoustic Blues Competition, and is the 2022 Washington State IBC winner. Steve has since shared a bill with musical titans like Bonnie Raitt, Taj Mahal, Keb Mo, Steve Winwood, and Anders Osborne.
