Hey Steve with Drugstore Cowboy

New wave punk band Hey Steve taps the flamboyant musicality of The Cars, Devo, The Clash, and The Talking Heads, and tosses it into a blender with the dark satire of Kurt Vonnegut and the wry observational wit of David Sedaris. Within a narrative context, the band waxes absurd and poetic about the apocalypse, courtship rituals, and manners, among other things.
 
Hey Steve is the brainchild of Luke Dick, an Oklahoma born, Nashville based songsmith who has penned hits for the likes of Eric Church, Miranda Lambert, Kacey Musgraves and Dierks Bentley.
The band’s 2018 summer “anti-war ditty” “Fuck a Bomb” delivers its rebellious message in a way that only Hey Steve could conjure – “Fuck a bomb, drop a single,” a tongue-in-cheek call-to-arms that landed the band on Spotify’s Rock This playlist (4.5 MILLION followers). It’s just another example of the band’s quirky lyrics and outside-the-box compositions that have already garnered admiration from outlets like NPR, who’s Ann Powers invited Hey Steve in for a World Cafe Nashville Session and states “Dick has a strong voice and vision in his own right, and it manifests in stories more creative — and funnier — than what Music Row usually offers,” and Rolling Stone Country who featured Dick with an in depth interview, calling Hey Steve Dick’s “irreverent Nashville punk band” and adding that “Dick is a something of an anomaly in the Nashville songwriting community.”
