Back in 2009, Steam Powered Giraffe released their first album! Take a trip with us back to the beginning as we highlight our past albums on YouTube- including the artwork that fills their lyric books.

First up is our classic intro song “Steam Man Band” written by Michael Reed.

The artwork features a holographic bust of the robots’ original inventor Peter Walter I sharing an endearing toast with a machine that doesn’t know any better…

For our complete musical collection, you can purchase our albums from our online music store both digitally and on CD! http://www.steampoweredgiraffe.com/musicstore.html

Meet the Band: Michael Reed

We’ve got a brand new segment we’re going to do on our YouTube called “Meet the Band”!

First up we have Michael Reed, who plays a ton of instruments for Steam Powered Giraffe, and just-so-happens-to-be the main musical director as well!

Take a gander at this adorable video created by Michael Reed himself to find out more about the man behind the band!

Enjoy!

-David Michael Bennett “The Spine”
