ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Steve McCormick is a consumate recording artist, covering all facets from songwriting and performance to recording, production and mixing.

The songs cover the gamut of "Americana" in a broad sense, mixing genres with facility and taste. You will hear everything from Bluegrass and Country to Blues to New Orleans Funk and Jazz. McCormick turns a phrase like no other, with an ironic and sophisticated wit. There is also a gorgeous cover of a Lucinda Williams song "Fruits of My Labor".

Stars and Chandeliers features McCormick's slide guitar playing, but also many other styles of guitar, acoustic finger picking, blistering Santana style lead guitar, etc., as well as Hammond B3 and Rhodes Piano, mandolin and banjo, drums and percussion. His vocals are a blend of Townes Van Zandt and Steve Earl on the country side, to Lowell George, Don Henley and Sly Stone on the Rock/Funk side.

McCormick brings his full weight of production skill to this record, recording many tracks with his custom McCormick Audio recording gear which includes tube microphones, tube pre-amplifiers, tube compressors, and passive summing arrays, to combine old-school analog sound with clean signal path. The result is exquisite ear-candy that leaps off the speakers and tantalizes in the headphones.

McCormick also hand picked his other collaborators, including some of the very best to ever record, such as drummer Richie Hayward (Little Feat), bassist and singer Daryl Johnson (Neville Brothers, Daniel Lanois, Emmylou Harris), pedal steel player Eric Heywood (Jayhawks, Calexico, Ray La Montagne), harmonica player Stanley Behrens (Canned Heat, War, Willie Dixon), as well as some of the best and brightest rising stars, singer Heather Donavon (Keb Mo), keyboardist and engineer Eric Lynn (Shangri La Studios) Amilia K Spicer, trombonist Dave Ralicke (Dengue Fever) recording and mixing engineer Kevin Smith and mastering engineer Ron Boustead.
