Steve came down from Portland to Truth or Consequences, NM to make his latest release with me here at Taproot Studio.  We had a blast and made a gem of a record with mostly just the two of us on instruments.

Steve Wilkinson’s career started as the fiery singer for Portland’s Gravelpit on Schizophonic Records (I-5 Killers compilation Everclear, The Wipers, Supersuckers), which released two singles and two full-length albums. Gravelpit later signed with boutique American psychedelic label Rockadelic Records, who released Gravelpit’s critically acclaimed third and final album, ‘Snowglobe’. He later formed Portland’s Mission 5, which released two full-length albums and toured the Northwest and Europe. He now fronts Portland’s Wilkinson Blades, who have released three well-received LPs. He and his bands continue to evolve and update his style while maintaining his unique voice and sound.

Steve has played over 1000 live shows and has opened for such luminaries as Afghan Whigs, Slash, Jason Bonham, The Dandy Warhols, Everclear, Mudhoney, Dead Moon, Elliott Smith, Freedy Johnston, Peter Case, Cherry Poppin’ Daddies, Napalm Beach, The Minders, and countless other significant regional and national acts. He is credited with nearly 30 releases, including nine full-length albums, multiple regional compilations, guest appearances on recordings, and has also composed scores for independent short films and plays.

He is currently playing regional acoustic shows in a solo and duo setting with Paul Brainard and Grant Cumpston and has just completed his first solo album, ‘Truth or Consequences’(released in 2023) with producer Rob Stroup.
