Welcome To Steep Smithy Music
Steep Smithy Music draws this unusual name from its location on a steep hill named Smithy Lane at the foot of which a blacksmith’s forge once traded. The company was formed in 2013 by songwriter / producer Mike Croft.
An in-house demo studio and a network of musician friends and contacts in the industry enables Steep Smithy to engage in the business of creating songs and offer support and career development to the exceptional young artists on their roster.
2016 was an exciting and productive year for Steep Smithy. 2017 promises to be even more so. We are now working in partnership with Gas Music Records, a very new, creative and already successful company based in Manchester’s Media City.
Steep Smithy artist Ashleigh Wood is presently working with Gas Music on an exciting new project… Love Will Tear Us Apart. Gas Music creative director Gary Hilton said “this song is a true Manchester anthem that not many have dared to recreate. Ashleigh’s crystal voice placed in a stripped down production has taken the song to another sad but very real place“.
