Founded and fronted by singer/songwriter, guitarist, Steve Welner, The WellDiggers are a New York based roots-rock, alt-country band that runs the gamut from acoustic folk and blues, to full throttle electric rock 'n roll; today's prevailing descriptive would be, "Americana" music. The WellDiggers' last album, "Hope and Fear" (2012) was selected as one of the top 10 albums of the year by, "American Roots UK's", Mike Morrison and by, "Folk 'n Roots" 31NR (96.5) DJ, Colin Fielding. Steve is currently working on a new album which will be released in 2016.
"....The WellDiggers are a band that really should be up there with the leading lights of 'alt country' thanks to their individuality and the high quality that very few if any can improve on." Mike Morrison, American Roots UK
"...The 10 Welner original songs are reminiscient of John Hiatt during his musically fertile period of, "Riding with the King", "Bring the Family", Stolen Moments" and "Perfectly Good Guitar"... " Francois, Rootsville SWA
