Duane Steele

Official Website
Duane Steele is among Canada’s top country recording artists and songwriters with a professional career dating back to 1984 and his first band Rock ‘N’ Horse. The multi-award winning artist has released six studio albums and one greatest hits album since, with many Top 10 singles on the Canadian country charts, including the #1 hit “Anita Got Married”. Duane has toured the world headlining his own shows, and opening for some of the hottest acts in country music including Shania Twain, Terri Clark, Trisha Yearwood and Sammy Kershaw. His pure voice and authentic country sound also makes him the ideal artist to pay tribute to the legendary George Jones, and he does so in a custom built show called The Legend of George Jones, in addition to playing his own music. In 2020, Duane released a brand new album to the world called Bonfires and Guitars, including the title track single, and a duet with Gord Bamford called “Blue Collar Palace”, released in advance of a tour that cancelled due to the global pandemic. Not one to be deterred however, Steele embraced technology to provide live streaming shows, and took part in Tom Jacksons “Almighty Voices,” an online series of concerts featuring multiple Canadian artists in support of the Unison Benevolent Fund. Duane was also the first artist to provide a recorded concert for Sakamoto Agency’s 100 Homes initiative, providing pre-recorded concerts to care homes across the country free of charge, as entertainment for those who are isolated from loved ones. Duane’s comfort with the stage and warm, natural presence makes his live shows a must see, and his songwriting style is relatable for any music fan. When he’s not touring or working on his own projects he is often writing with other artists, and music production has become a natural progression for Duane, who enjoys working in this capacity on both his own music and others, while continuing his solo music career.
