Like a Tesla coil spliced into a nuclear reactor, the Steampunk movement has been sparking the imagination of millions of people worldwide. Some of its most visible ambassadors have been the musical artists who have adopted the aesthetic, the ideas, and the history, and interpreted it in their own unique ways.

Steampunk-Music.com's mission is to entice new and current fans to explore --and share freely--the music emerging from this genre without boundaries. From cabaret to metal to electronica to punk to chamber music to folk , there are few musical styles one won't find here. Each artist calls out to times past in their own way, through their words, their instrumentation, or simply the ideas behind the music.

Steampunks are known for their do-it-yourself work ethic. Many of the bands here are independent. Without label and media funding, they rely solely on word of mouth, old fashioned legwork, and the support of their fans. Listen to their work. Share it wherever and whenever possible.

The Crew
Lex Chase

The origins of Lex Chase are the stuff of legend. Discovered in a cocoon on the back of a fruit truck, her mother wanted to name her "Kiwi." Luckily, common sense intervened, so Pomelo it was.

While she plots the liberation of her fruity brethren, Lex is a journalist by day, novelist by night, and full-time cat parent. Her fiction focus is on supernatural adventure, where paranormal protagonists go on grand journeys to save the world and maybe themselves. She blogs about her writing adventures at http://lexchase.com and shares a picture of the occasional kitten. When all of the little girls in first grade said they were princesses, there was no mistaking Lex was a Martian.

You can find her frequently on that Twitter squawky box thing @westiebee

Allison Curval
Allison Curval's love affair with composition began at the tender age of 11, writing 2 minute songs on Mario Paint. While the Super Nintendo is collecting dust at the bottom of her parents basement, Allison still writes music for The Clockwork Dolls.

A self-taught composer, Allison wrote her first recorded song back when she was 17, using her parents karaoke machine and a cheap knock-off Fender Stratocaster. The song was called “Chumbucket.” Thankfully, it never saw the light of day.

After repeated attempts to start a band, Allison quickly educated herself in music theory and writing complex electronica pieces. She eventually became involved in a synth pop project Digital Collapse. Unfortunately, the project caved, and Allison was left back where she started. Over the period of several years, Allison began experimenting with orchestral composition, and that's where the groundwork for The Clockwork Dolls was formed . Allison Curval, as a child, was given the option of playing either the piano or the violin...

She chose wisely.
