A Glimpse into Jeffrey Steele's Musical Journey
Jeffrey LeVasseur, famously known as Jeffrey Steele, was born on August 27, 1961, in Burbank, California. He comes from a musical family, with a mother who was a singer and a father who aspired to become a country music songwriter. Jeffrey's own musical journey began at a young age when he sang Three Dog Night's "Joy to the World" at a church function at the age of eight, earning a standing ovation and igniting his passion for music.
As he grew older, Jeffrey Steele shifted his focus to songwriting and performance. By the age of 17, he was already performing with local groups and playing keyboards at various gigs in Los Angeles. In 1987, after the passing of his father, he changed his last name to Steele as a tribute to his father, who worked with steel processing.
Jeffrey Steele's musical career took a significant turn in 1990 when he, along with three other talented musicians, formed the band Boy Howdy. In this band, Jeffrey served as the lead vocalist and bass guitarist. The band gained recognition for their impactful music and even changed their name to "New Frontier" briefly at the request of their record label, Curb Records. However, thanks to the endorsement of the name by Ralph Emery on 'Nashville Now,' they managed to keep their original name, Boy Howdy.
During their time together, Boy Howdy recorded three albums and an EP for Curb Records and charted seven singles on the Billboard country music charts. Jeffrey Steele's role as the band's primary songwriter led to significant acclaim, with awards for Best Bassist and Best Male Vocalist from the California Country Music Association.
Solo Career and Success as a Songwriter
In 1994, Steele relocated to Nashville, Tennessee, where he embarked on a solo career. He released three solo singles and a self-titled solo album in 1996, but unfortunately, the album was never shipped. However, his true calling emerged when he began writing songs for other artists.
Jeffrey Steele quickly gained recognition as a prolific songwriter, co-writing hit songs for renowned artists such as Kevin Sharp, Diamond Rio, and LeAnn Rimes. His songwriting talents earned him numerous BMI awards.
In 2001, Steele signed a solo recording contract with Monument Records and released his debut album, "Somethin' in the Water." This marked his entry as a solo artist on the country music scene, with the title track reaching No. 33 on the Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart.
Despite his success as a solo artist, Steele continued to write songs for other country music stars, including Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Trace Adkins, and Montgomery Gentry. His remarkable journey as a songwriter and artist has earned him accolades and awards, including being named Songwriter of the Year by BMI and the Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI).
Some of his notable achievements include writing "What Hurts the Most," a chart-topping single for Rascal Flatts, and co-writing the song "I Thought I Lost You" with Miley Cyrus for the 2008 Disney animated film "Bolt."
Jeffrey Steele's discography includes several albums, with hits like "Roots of Country," "Somethin' in the Water," and "Once a Cowboy."
