ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Well he got a picture of a bottle of whiskey on the front cover and the website. Goes a long way with this reviewer already. A quick perusal of his website reveals he's been gigging and recording for a good while already. This his second disc for Ethic and his fourth CD solo since 1993. That workrate shows in the smooth and sophisticated set of songs. He looks on the cover like a hazier Hank Williams III and a bit of that rebel rouser with a glint in the eye attitude seeps out of the songs..e.g. the boozy ballad 'Alcohol and Power Tools'. Great song and most of the offerings on display are similar standard. Particular faves the wonderfully named 'Harry Fogelberg's Blues' When you realise this namechecks Harry Chapin and later he covers Paul Westerberg's 'Skyway' you realise this is one wised up cowpoke. There's plenty of 'proper' country playing bedding down the words and to be honest this one of the srongest 'unknown' discs I've heard in a while. There's a shot of Jason Ringenberg, a dash of Dwight Yoakham and a vocal slant all his own. Highly recommended ..strong and feisty like a shot of J.D. Bartender give me one more........If you like the sound of this medicine the disc available from the website above. Moment to savour? The pure as moonshine fiddle intro. to the bluegrass n' godly 'Today is the day' and later the refrain of 'I'm sorry Jimmie Rodgers'.....'I hate trains'...played in pure homage..yes sir a great little disc worth tracking down.

You're in good hands with this guy...
What a treat! Steve's got the perfect combination of songcraft and sentiment. He's the kind of artist who just makes it sound so easy you have no idea of what goes into it. His songs have such a timeless appeal that I found myself repeatedly reaching for the CD cover to see who's song he was covering. Was it an obscure Tom T. Hall b-side? Surely nobody around today could come up with stuff this good and deep. But no, sure enough they're all his. Except for one: He gets a triple word score bonus for doing Paul Westerberg's "Skyway". Just sit back and let Steve Owen do the driving. You don't know where you're gonna wind up but don't worry about it. There'll be good peple, great stories and free flowing Maker's Mark...
