Excerpt of the video made for the song, “Indie Girl” (words & music by Steve Conte) performed by Steve Conte & The Crazy Truth. This performance comes from the film DE BLOEDKORALEN EN HET LAM by Jacoba Cornelisse.

Steve Conte is an American musician, songwriter, guitarist, music producer, and lead singer of the band Steve Conte NYC worked with composer Yoko Kanno and lyricist Tim Jensen on soundtracks to various popular anime series. Those works include the opening theme to Wolf’s Rain, titled “Stray”, as well as the tracks “Heaven’s Not Enough” and “Could You Bite the Hand?”. All three appear on the OST albums. As a guest vocalist for the Kanno-led Seatbelts, Steve also sang vocals in episodes of Cowboy Bebop, as well as the 2001 film, most notably the song “Call Me Call Me”, as well as “Words That We Couldn’t Say”, “No Reply” and “Diggin’”. He also sang “Rain” on the OST CD, which is sung by Mai Yamane and featured in the series.

He would later sing alongside Shanti Snyder on “Living Inside the Shell”, the ending theme to 2004’s Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2nd GIG. Conte also performed on the duet “The Garden of Everything” with Japanese singer Maaya Sakamoto on her RahXephon-related single “Tune the Rainbow”. In 2007, Steve provided the vocals for the video game Sonic and the Secret Rings. He sings the closing credits song titled “Worth a Chance”, as well as the game’s main theme “Seven Rings in Hand”.
