Chris Riddell - Vocals

Chris travelled the bar circuit in the early eighties singing with bands Tyrus and Hellion before deciding the road life wasn't for him. He didn't sing much until the mid 2000's when he got back into music jamming and fronting bands like Dick Spacey and Oldschool.

Studying bel canto voice technique when he was young helped him to develop his potential and allows him to push the limits when performing. As frontman for Steel Edge, the band has the strong vocals needed for the challenging repetoire the band is known for.

Woody Marcoux- Bass

Woody comes from a musical upbringing with his father, a choir director, organ and piano player. He played trumpet for a few years during the eighties and picked up bass in the mid 90's. He played the band circuit around Halifax until 1999, then in Ottawa until 2013.

His playing is influenced by John Paul Jones, Geddy Lee, Sting and of course Paul McCartney.

Tim Palser - Lead Guitar

Tim has been playing for over 40 years and loves to rock on. His hot leads and chuncky rythyms add a unique color and texture to the Steel Edge sound.

After honing his chops in the country world, Tim joined various bands playing music that is near and dear to his heart, classic rock and blues. 

Jim Evans - Pedal Steel Guitar

Jim has been playing in bands for more than 45 years. He was the guitar player with "The Chosen Few", a hot Kitchener band in the 60"s and a forerunner to "Copperpenny".

He played professionally on the road doing the Ontario bar circuit for several years, ending up in England playing and recording with popular British band McGuinness-Flint. With recording and touring experience Jim returned to Canada and started Waxworks Recording Studio, today a thriving Video and Website Development company, Waxworks Creative. His pedal steel hero is Robert Randolph and he constantly reaches new heights exploring blues and classic rock on this unique sounding instrument.

Dana Marostega - Drums & Vocals

Dana first started playing drums in high school with a band called "WINSLOW". The few years after that saw him in various R & R and country outfits.

His skills were tested in a prog rock band called "Keeper" from Toronto which did some touring.

Early 80's then had him forming "pdb opera" writing all their own material. Into the 90's dana slowed down his playing to work on his own projects. Dana comes to Steel Edge with a solid beat and strong back vocals.
