SATE has its feet firmly planted in the 21st century, but the passing of the torch is fully evident on this primordial scream of a debut record that balances huge riffs with swaggering female vocals, like a lost collaboration between Tina Turner and Jimi Hendrix. SATE is out to satisfy earholes.
Armed with ferocious soulful wails, relentless guitars and greasy grooves, the SATE experience is fueled by one lyric - "Don't let them demons pull the trigger, don't let them kick you down"...because, onstage SATE fights until everyone is connected in sweat and sated.

Anthony Gomes, #1 Billboard Blues Artist, is a triple threat force as a guitarist, vocalist and songwriter.  Blues Music Magazine’s editor recently declared that, “Gomes’ formidable guitar chops and authentic singing place him in the forefront of modern blues.”  This, along with his high-energy shows and dynamic stage presence, make him one of the top draws on the Rock/Blues circuit today.  Gomes has headlined concerts in 17 countries and has had the honor of sharing the stage with B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Robert Plant, Joe Bonamassa, Heart, Jonny Lang and Kenny Wayne Shepherd.

Word of Gomes’ electrifying performances has reached Eric Clapton, Morgan Freeman, John Goodman, Toby Keith, Jonny Lang, Ron White and Vince Vaughn who have all attended Gomes’ concerts.  After experiencing Gomes  live, John Goodman referred to him as “a pure soul brother” and comedian Ron White declared his official endorsement of Anthony Gomes.   Perhaps the greatest complement was offered by Morgan Freeman who jokingly professed that Anthony was, “not bad for a white boy.” 

“Bill Toms is a poet, a soul-shouter and guitar slinger with one foot in the gutter and an eye on the heavens above. And man, does he front a great rock n' soul band!” - Will Kimbrough

           The creative compulsion to write songs that stir emotion, challenge the mind, and move the tail feathers of the audience is undeniably unique in music today. His performances have become legendary in sheer power and passion. Rock and roll, soul, blues, and gospel so deep the earth moves, and the walls begin shakin’ as Bill Toms and his band start the train rollin. American music never sounded so good.
            He joined Pittsburgh’s legendary band, Joe Grushecky and The Houserockers, as lead guitarist in 1987. The band’s meteoric rise into the professional music scene enabled Bill to tour the United States and Europe repeatedly. While with Joe Grushecky and the Houserockers he opened for and played with a long and impressive list of notables, such as The Band, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Little Feat and Stevie Ray Vaughn. During his 20 years of playing guitar, co-writing, and singing back-up vocals for the Houserockers, Toms recorded six studio albums and one live concert album. In 1995, the acclaimed CD, “American Babylon,” was recorded and produced by Bruce Springsteen.
          Bill Toms’ solo performances have taken him all over the United States and Europe. In addition to his previous six studio CD's, one “Live” CD, and single EP, his latest record, the Will Kimbrough produced, “Memphis” was released to international critical acclaim in 2011
