..."Sweet Simple Life is an album that any lover of roots music  with strong country leanings will need in there collection and one that will be pushing towards the upper echelons of my albums of the year" Mike Morrision, American Roots, UK

..."Love the record, man, will definitely be in my best releases for 2012!!!"
Colin Fielding (DJ), 31NR 96.5 inner fm Australia

..."I like the song, the video and the musical company that you keep." 
Danny McCloskey, The Alternate Root

..."Steves' slightly-reedy vocals, similar to Brian Henneman's work with the Bottle Rockets work well with both the barnstorming electric tracks as well as the more sensitive country songs."
Jeff Weiss, Miles of Music

Back To You

Steve's latest album, "Back To You" featuring guitarist/producer, Eric "Roscoe" Ambel, Keith Christopher (bass), and Shawn Murray (drums) was recorded and mixed in Brooklyn, NY at Cowboy Technical Studio in 2019-20. The album features 11 songs written by Steve and highlights the roots genres that authentically flow from him; folk, rock, and country blues, all within the framework of imaginative tales and narratives. The album offers up his unique, oft-times subtle comic take on politics, religion, guns, and life in general.  
Due to Covid-19 we have decided to hold back the new album release temporarily as we navigate the current difficult times. Check back here and we'll keep you posted.
