The Mighty One was created by Tim Steinruck in 2007. Tim is a veteran songwriter, musician, and performer. He moved to Vancouver days as a teen to pursue a professional music career, from foundations that were built at an early age in northern BC, Canada. In Vancouver, he immediately established himself as a touring musician, with multiple A-list acts, and for over 10 years enjoyed performing across North America. The band "Unchained", which began as a Van Halen tribute act, eventually evolved into an original entity of which he was a major songwriting contributor and producer. The band succeeded in securing a development deal, and a speculative multi-million record deal with producer Paul Stanley of Kiss and Polygram Records. The band was flown to Kiss's studio in North Hollywood to record an EP that remains unreleased. The emergence of 'grunge' stalled Unchained's evolution and Tim soon began to focus on producing his own music. Through several versions of his ultimate creative vehicle, Tim finally crystallized his vision into the creation of TheMightyOne. He enlisted Devin Townsend (Steve Vai, Lamb of God, The Devin Townsend Project) to produce the single "Reprieved" from the debut self-titled album, and secured renowned mixer Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Rush, Metallica) to ensure the single's recognition at radio. The album and single have received solid play across North America since 2010 charting as high as #2 in some areas. The video for "Reprieved" is currently still in regular rotation on Canada's national cable TV music video channel, Much Loud. The sophomore album SHiFT spawned two successful radio singles, "Waiting for You" and "Countdown to Ascension" and saw the band showcase at S.X.S.W. in Austin, Texas, and Canadian Music Week in Toronto. "Waiting For You" was featured by the NHL and Sirius XM to celebrate the return of Sydney Crosby after his concussion. The song continued to chart successfully at Sirius XM, and a French version was made popular by Canadian Forces radio for troops stationed around the world. A special release of their debut album was part of "Auditory Assault II", which was part of a donated group of hard rock recordings distributed to American troops around the world. 2020 began a new chapter for TheMightyOne with a new single released "Burden", a song that is part of an upcoming 2021 release In Summer of 2020 The Mighty One signed with heavyweight German record label CMM/SAOL, whose clients include Iron Maiden, and secured worldwide distribution through Sony Records, The Orchard. In November 2020 they released a feel-good single and music video for "Christmas in The North" that sprang from a COVID-inspired online relationship with a New Zealand FM radio station and a classic, Norwegian power metal band, Viking Queen. 2021 began powerfully with the release of the single, Coming On from their third album "Torch Of Rock And Roll", anchored by an animated music video that tells Tim's story. A comic book series, based on the video, produced with partners in Latin America. The music video "Burden" was released on July 2, 2021, and the band broadcast a Livestream event from The Rickshaw Theatre in Vancouver, B.C. featuring former Annihilator vocalist Dave Padden on lead guitar. The song "My Garden" from that show is a testament to the band's raw power, energy, presence, and sound. Later that year they released the song/video for "Darker Side Of Me" which dives deep into the psychology of self and how our shadow is not something to fear but faced. In 2022 Tim Steinruck embraced new roles as the host, and co-director/producer of Rise Up TV, a reality show that takes artists on international tours and captures their journey. He also accepted the position of operations manager at the Canadian label Big Records to further The Mighty One and his creative peers. The Mighty One also released the song and music video for the song "So High" which explores our relationship with altered states through drug and medicine use. The government, educators, and addiction organizations are considering using it as a teaching tool, and Tim is planning a speaking tour in that regard. Tim is also entering the final stages of production for the first of a comic book series entitled "The Mighty One, Legacy" based on his story outlined in the story of the "Torch Of Rock And Roll." His autobiographical book "Torch Of Rock And Roll. The Fire Of Purpose" is also nearing completion and is planned for publication in 2024. The Mighty One continues to enjoy exponential audience growth worldwide and has been featured in Rock Hard, Power Play, and Fireworks magazines. Recently they signed music licensing deals for their music with NASCAR, MTV, Discovery, and A&E!
