Steamboats is made up of long-time friends, Nick Throop, Mario Rincon and Jon Jaffee.

Shortly after, in the Summer of 2012, the group added Patrick Murphy, completing the instrumental ensemble of Steamboats. In the Summer of 2014, Steamboats released their four-song, self-titled EP. Their debut EP is a sample of their original work and features accordionist Kate Dunphy (Carte Blanche) and drummer Jon Shiffman (Bleachers).
