Freddie Steady (Freddie Krc) moved to Austin in January of 1974. After seeing the Beatles on Ed Sullivan at 9 years old, he knew music was his lot in life. As a lefty, he learned to play drums ambidextrously, first playing rock music, then branching out to country, folk, blues, jazz, punk, power pop, americana, and so much more. Starting out in Austin with WilCox West, he’s played with great musicians and opened for world renowned bands, in venues from San Francisco to England. He’s since become a songwriter, producer, and teacher who works to keep the magic of Austin music alive for future generations.
