ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Steve was once compared to an old comfortable sofa. It ain’t much to look at, but there's just something, well, comfortable about it.

The comfortable thing about Steve is the song. It's all about the song. His strength is his writing. He’ll readily admit he doesn’t sing or play that well, but his singing and playing kind of works for what he’s doing. It's three chords and his truth.

Like most creative types, he sees things a little differently than the 'normal' folks. Some of the things he sees, he can relate through song. He doesn’t really write them, they come to him, and he relates them.

His sound can be a bit ‘country flavored’ but not heavy-handed, more along the lines of Americana. As a songwriter, he’s proud to have had the opportunity to perform twice in the late 90’s at Nashville’s famed Bluebird Café at their Sunday Writers’ Night. His songs, ‘Wet Dog (Someone To Care)’ and ‘I’ve Lost All Faith’ were named Tastes of the Day by eartaste.com in 2007. Both songs were on CD samplers released by that website.

“Tampa resident Steve Vaclavik is a troubadour in the tradition of Bob Dylan and Townes Van Zandt. His songs are full of the truth as seen by ordinary people. These people often tend to be life's underdogs, and Steve has the special gift to capture their perspectives on the world with genuine understanding. His words, full of humor and insight, are the essence of his music, but his Dylan-esque vocals and spare guitar playing provide a fitting framework that rings true and clear.” (From Pro Star Recording press release for their Pro Star Sound Stage Celebrate the Songwriter Series - December 2007.)

“…the Tampa musician strums a simple tune onstage. But listen to his vocals, and the lyrical strength of his tunes becomes evident….With an ear for eloquence and an eye for detail, Vaclavik crafts his songs around the emotions of everyday life. Songs like ‘Bus Window,’ ‘Swinging Gate,’ and ‘Little Rabbit,’ exemplify the personal and poignant nature of his work.” (From Michael Dunn, The Tampa Tribune - 1996.)

Long Grass & Tall Trees
Oh mercy! If I had my own radio show
I would play a bunch of songs from this and other
Steve V. CDs so more folks could hear them.
Only one song on this CD that I don't quite get yet. Maybe I'll "get" it later : )
