Harmonies!!!! My god, what harmonies. Steamboats is made up of long-time friends, Nick Throop, Mario Rincon and Jon Jaffee. They formed in the late Fall of 2011 when the three got together in Bed-Stuy and began singing traditional bluegrass and folk songs, as well as slowly developing original material written by Throop and Rincon. Shortly after, in the Summer of 2012, the group added Patrick Murphy, completing the instrumental ensemble of Steamboats. In the Summer of 2014, Steamboats released their four-song, self-titled EP. Their debut EP is a sample of their original work and features accordionist Kate Dunphy (Carte Blanche) and drummer Jon Shiffman (Bleachers). These guys have harmonies made in heaven. I am so impressed. Steamboats sound like angels. I cannot believe how tight these guys are. It’s like listening to an updated Peter, Paul, and Mary. If there is a heaven, this is the music that’s being played.
