Cuatro Canciones

by Deadman

DEADMAN's debut E.P. is the sound of soft yearning, marked in places by plangent guitars that flare like sheet lightning in the darkling gloom of brushed drums and gently rolling bass. Collins' plaintive vocals nestle in a gown of crushed velvet..

Album Notes
Cuatro Canciones, the pre-cursor to DEADMAN's full length CD, Paramour. Cuatro Canciones is a four song exploration into a sound as unique as it is inspring:

* Rosa Marie - a confessional song.
* The Ballad of the Gold Thief - the story of an infamous gold bandit in Mexico who buries his loot in a well and gives the only exhisting map to a girl who can't read.
* Adios Mi Corazon - a light song about love lost
* Lonely Times - a song born in the dead of the night

DEADMAN started as a solo project for singer-songwriter, Steven Collins in the early summer of 1998. A veteran of Dallas' Deep Ellum music scene, Steven formed and played with The Plebeians (Carpe Diem Records) for 7 years. In addition to touring the Texas region extensively, The Plebeians released several albums, the latest of which featured guest artists Jon Dee Graham, Charlie Sexton, and Kurt Neumann (Bodeans). Anxious for a way to take a new creative direction as a musician and songwriter, Collins began writing material in a different vein - with new perspective. DEADMAN would become his next project.

DEADMAN is about key elements that have fascinated the globe for years: Spirituality, The American West, The Gun Fighter, Fear, Redemption and Rock & Roll. DEADMAN sets out to develop the genre in a popular musical fashion. From a range of institutional influences like Bob Dylan and Neil Young to the atmospherics of Daniel Lanois and U2, DEADMAN comes across like William Munny on the Silver Screen, unforgettable and instantly classic.

The American West, The Gun Fighter, Fear, Redemption and Rock & Roll. It's like a really great Clint Eastwood western, with the seriousness of a record like Springsteen's 'The Ghost of Tom Joad,' mixed in.


Moody, Juarez Rock N Roll
Like a series of short stories that are strung together by a similar cast of characters I wanted this to turn into a novella eventually, but sadly its only an EP.
I could almost taste the dust as these songs carried me away like a movie to some un-named border town.
The melodic guitar and smooth vocals compliment each other perfectly, while direction is maintained in the background by bass/percussion. Beautiful simple songs, that again remind me of soundtrack material.
I just need more to see how the story ends.
