Southpaw Steel'n'Twang are a power trio consisting of three seasoned musicians. The band concentrates mostly on instrumental music, focus is often on pedal - and lap steel guitars while strato - and telecaster also give their sound to the gumbo...

Ville "Lefty" Leppänen takes care of the aforementioned instruments - and also sings a bit - while JP Mönkkönen (bass) and Tero Mikkonen (drums) lay the foundations for Lefty's guitar circus.

It's hard to describe the band's style: blues, western swing, jazz, progressive rock, musical landscape painting... Steel'n'twang whatever be the thang!
