Boxstep has been described by the Washington Post as "a post-rock octet that melds the Appalachian ballad with the European art song." A "rag tag orchestra" of violin, viola, accordion and piano as well as the traditional rock line up of guitar, bass and drums, Boxstep creates a "timeless and folksy wall of sound".

The Faces All Look On, their debut album for Chicago-based Overcoat Recordings, was released in June of 2001. The Chicago Reader called Faces "important" and a work "whose greatness is self-contained". Time Out New York hailed its "wide open pop arrangements" and "lush instrumentation." Their follow up EP, By Now Even The Trees, was released here in the States in April, 2002.

The band's European label, Homesleep Records, released The Faces All Look On in January of 2003 in Europe and the record was met with critical acclaim over seas. Homesleep released the EP, By Now Even Trees in September of 2003, and the bands latest album entitled Backroads will be released by Homesleep early in 2004. The band will follow up with a European tour in the spring.

Over the past two years Boxstep has been on the road winning over audiences from Boston to Austin with what the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette calls their "emotional, richly orchestrated pop" and "unexpected crescendos and layers of intricate melodies". They have played with bands such as Luna and My Morning Jacket. Boxstep was also honored to be a part of Farm Aid in 2002. At the SXSW Music Festival, Boxstep was chosen as one of the "bands to watch" by both Citysearch and the Austin Chronicle. This past summer, the band was thrilled to open for Wilco on the symphony stage at Point State Park in Pittsburgh, PA.

As for now, Boxstep is busy at home playing shows and writing new material.
