So I got the chance to sit down and talk with the very talented and very interesting duo, 2 Steel Girls and this is what they had to say:
Hello ladies, I have been looking forward to this so let’s get started as I know you are very busy right now.
Q So you were finalists on The Voice – Team Blake. How cool was that?
A That was loads of fun and very cool.
Q Now you have picked the name 2 Steel Girls. Do you both have the last name Steel?
A Yeah, we do yeah.
Q So you are sisters?
A We’re Mom and Daughter.
Q Really? No way.
A We are.
Q I just keep running into these mother daughter teams. This is weird. When you were on The Voice were you on as mother and daughter?
A Yes we were and we went by 2 Steel Girls and we were on last season.
Q Right, okay and since then what has been happening?
A A lot, actually right now we are working on a CD that we are going to release in May. We had been on the Hallmark Channel in January and we are actually going to be on the Today Show with Kathy Lee and Hoda on May 10th, so we have a whole lot going on right now plus we are playing out different shows locally right here in our home town Columbia and in Nashville. So we have been very busy.
Q Where are you recording?
A Do you know who Gwen Sebastian is?
A Gwen Sebastian was on Season 2 of The Voice. She travels a lot with Blake Shelton and she does a lot of his background vocals. She is releasing her second, I believe it’s her second CD I think in June and our producer her finance he’s a real good friend of Blake and Miranda as well. We were on Blake’s team on The Voice and they are all just really good friends and he’s producing our album. His name is Louie Newman and he’s a great guy and so we are releasing our Single on the Today Show on May 10th.
Q And who is doing that work for you, the promotions and all of that. Are you on a label?
A We are not. We are independent right now. We have done everything to the point right now on that by ourselves. Our producer owns a company that is going to be doing all of that.
Q And do you want to tell us the name of the single?
A Yes it is called, “Train Wreck.”
Q Cute. Have you shot a video for it?
A We will be shooting a video real soon. We have a lot to do in a short period of time. We were going to put out our album a little farther down the road but The Today Show called and wanted us on May 10th and that was the best date for them so we had to move everything up and that is why we are so busy right now. We have been writing and are in pre-production, photography, video and everything you can think of that goes along with it. It’s just like we are working day and night but it’s a good thing. We are not complaining.
Q Did you just run the Country Music Marathon on April 27th?
A We just performed at that.
Q Are you going to be performing at the CMA Music Festival in June?
A Yes we are. I know we are playing Puckett’s in Nashville during CMA fest.
Q Do you have content up on You Tube?
A Our channel is https://www.youtube.com/user/SteelCountryMusic
Q Do you know what time you will be appearing during The Today Show?
A We will be on the fourth hour so I think it’s 11:00 a.m. eastern.
Q Well I am looking forward to seeing you on The Today Show and I look forward to hearing “Train Wreck.”
We talked a bit longer and said our goodbyes. I have to tell you that these are two very nice girls and I truly look forward to speaking to them again.
