    The Expat - Steve Steele finds a harder-edged sound on his debut album.

    Eight years ago, the Houston Press reviewed this EP called InfraRed IntroSpective (IRIS for short) from a local singer/guitarist named Steve Steele. "Steele's stylishness verges on nostalgia more often than even he knows," we wrote, adding that his ...
