Steve Gunn is a New York-based guitarist and songwriter. With a career spanning nearly fifteen years, Steve has produced volumes of critically acclaimed solo, duo, and ensemble recordings. His albums represent milestones of contemporary guitar-driven material, and forward thinking songwriting. Steve has steadily processed his inspirations into a singular, virtuosic stream. Close listening reveals the influence of blues, folk, ecstatic free jazz, and psych in his continually unfolding output. In 2016 Steve released, Eyes On The Lines, his first album for Matador Records which the Washington Post called, "so intimate and so mysteriously distant all at once". In January 2019 he followed it up with his breakthrough fourth album, The Unseen In Between where he explores his own emotional landscapes with his most complex, fully realized songs to date.
“The songs are sweeping, with intricate finger picking and rich instrumentation, the lyrics meditative and intimate” -New York Times
"It’s the most immediate set Gunn has ever made, a leap forward that’s thrilling to hear” -Rolling Stone
