About Steel Standing

Charlotte, NC

Steel Standing, a New Rock trio from Charlotte, North Carolina, exploded onto the scene in late 2005. Their debut single "Fall Away" was featured on the Rocket13/Amps Eleven compilation disc in early ‘06, which resulted in air play and an online buzz. This attention helped the band quickly gather a loyal following. Not long after the release of their debut album THE ROAD, Steel Standing’s second single “Black Star” reached the top of Clear Channel’s “NEW!” Alternative and Rock Charts and currently has nearly one million plays. The band has since posted online CD sales and radio requests from all across the country

Steel Standing’s music consists of powerful riffs and melodic rhythm, combined with an intense live performance that continues to leave fans hungry for more. Steel Standing has been compared to the Foo Fighters, Breaking Benjamin, and Three Day's Grace. Their sounds typically emulate a Foo Fighters-meets-Chevelle coalition

The band’s members include Neil Jackson, Jeff “JD” Dunegan, and Chris “Goody” Goodman, all who bring over 10 years of experience to the table. Neil’s guitar and vocal work make Steel Standing stand out from the every day artist in the Rock Genre. Neil has been fueled by brutal honesty and introspection since the breakup of his last project. JD offers super-solid bass lines that set the groove for Steel Standing’s music. Goody adds intensity with hard-hitting drums and heated live performances

Steel Standing teamed up with Rob Tavaglione of Catalyst Recording in mid 2006 to begin work on a demo to push things farther for the band. After just a bit of work the demo became much more and turned into the band’s debut album THE ROAD, which was packaged for an early 2007 release. The band has since opened for National Acts such as Jani Lane (Warrant), Stuck Mojo, and Adema. They were also booked with Stroke 9, Chevelle, and Finger Eleven. Among many venues the band has played, Steel Standing has headlined several shows at Charlotte’s largest indoor venue Amos’ South End and played Ziggy’s in Winston Salem, another of NC’s larger venues. Steel Standing fans would tell you “Don’t miss the next show,” but the real question is, why aren’t you already saying that
