The Hold Steady Essentials

The Hold Steady Essentials

An unyieldingly band from Brooklyn, The Hold Steady are famous for their raucous live shows, but the secret to their 21st-century indie-rock success lies in the lyrical mastery of wordsmith Craig Finn. A charismatic frontman and compelling storyteller who delivers his words with inspiring confidence, Finn's darkly humorous tales of blue-collar miscreants made The Hold Steady critical darlings. 2006's Boys and Girls in America and 2008's Stay Positive were both breakout albums.
