NYC Guitarist, Singer & Songwriter Steve Conte (New York Dolls, Michael Monroe) Releases New Single Overnight Smash

NYC Guitarist, Singer & Songwriter Steve Conte (New York Dolls, Michael Monroe) Releases New Single “Overnight Smash”, Off Upcoming Album ‘Bronx Cheer‘, Out November 5, 2021.

Core band consists of Steve Conte on guitar and vocals with bass by his brother John Conte (Southside Johnny & The Jukes, David Bowie, Ian Hunter) and Charley Drayton (Keith Richards, Iggy Pop, The Replacements) on drums. LP also features guest appearances by Clem Burke (Blondie), Andy Rourke (The Smiths), and Jesse Malin.

New York City guitarist, singer and songwriter Steve Conte has released “Overnight Smash,” the next single off his first solo album in five years, the attitude-infused Bronx Cheer, releasing Friday, November 5 on Wicked Cool Records.

Steve says, “(“Overnight Smash”) is about professional jealousy. Once somebody starts ‘Getting Somewhere’ in their career, there is always that crowd that, for whatever reason, got left behind in the dust. And then they like to shit-talk about ya.”

Long known for his memorable guitar work as a member of New York Dolls, as well as former Hanoi Rocks frontman Michael Monroe’s band (with whom he still performs), Steve found international fame in recent years via his collaborations with Japanese composer and artist Yoko Kanno on the soundtracks to several hit anime series, including Cowboy Bebop.
