ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Today’s crop of ‘edgy’ singer/songwriters has much to learn from guys like Steve Warner . . . much to learn about writing from the heart, appealing to simple human emotion and touching the universals that are ever more meaningful as life in the 21st century unfolds.”

Eric Garrison—Touring Folk Artist & Founder of Cedar Run Workshops

"Steve's songs reveal a sharp eye for detail, an ear for the unexpected chord, and create a mood that makes these newer works sound as if they've been around for years and sung by many. No small praise."______________________________

David Roth, Songwriter, Recording Artist
TRACKS:

GO
We all need a kick in the butt once in awhile.

ANNABEL LEE
This melody came first …the name fit the melody…
and the Civil War seemed to be the perfect setting.

CULTURE OF VIOLENCE
This song was actually written before the Virginia Tech
tragedy. If only a song could change the world.

MAKE MY COT WHERE THE COT COT COTTON GROWS
I learned this gem from an obscure R. Crumb
and the Cheap Suit Serenaders record.

SAVE IT FOR A RAINY DAY
Sometimes you gotta move on.

PICKIN’ UP THE PIECES
Talk about movin’ on….the victims of Katrina had little choice.

BEER WITH JESUS
If only we could just sit down over a cold one
and solve world problems.

IF YOU STOPPED LOVING ME
There are questions we don’t like to ponder.
Nancy (vocal) ponders with the best of them.

OUR TOWN
Community pride is contagious. I love small towns
and main streets.

CHARLIE’S ANGEL
No gift is greater than human kindness.

YOU AND BOBBY MAGOO
Just for laughs…the ultimate cover song!
I’ll get a lot of royalties, or lawsuits.

AIN’T MISBEHAVIN’
The Fats Waller legacy will live on and on …
at least with this most perfect song.

QUEEN OF THE BALL
Apparently I wasn’t aware of it at the time, but this
ditty is a tribute to dear friend Eloise Clem who died
at 81 years young.

CARRY ON
I can only hope that music will be part of my legacy.

THE PEACE I’VE MADE
I wanted to write a uke tune…and this came out.

From the word "Go", this collection of songs takes the listener on a musical journey that runs the gauntlet of human emotion until it comes full circle with a very satisfying conclusion. And then it starts all over again!

Steve Warner along with Nancy Lynn, Andy Mosholder, and an impressive collection of guest musicians have provided us with another recording that won't be spending much time on the shelf.

While taking the listener from inspiration to resolution, the CD simultaneously presents a vivid collection of snapshots of Americana - at its best, at its worst, at its lightest, but always through the honest and compassionate eye of the artist. Each song leads perfectly into the next and before you know it, fifty-five minutes have flown by.

Picking out just a few favorite tracks is nearly impossible. As soon as I heard the washboard on "Make My Cot ..." I was compelled to get out of my chair and participate, as was again the case for the band's irresistable rendition of "Ain't Misbehavin'". "Our Town" had me ready to pack a picnic, jump in the car and go find a town to waltz through. "Charlie's Angel" reminds us how much we all still need to respect, appreciate, and look after one another - now more than ever. Nancy's sweet interpretation of "If You Stopped Loving Me" with Andy's beautiful cello playing left me sighing. (I think I hit the repeat button twice the first time I heard it!) Then there is the chilling "Culture of Violence", the heartbreaking "Picking up the Pieces", and on and on ...

The title cut pulls it all together, a direct statement of the philosophy and mission statement of one of the finest writers of our time. Yeah - this one really is my favorite cut on the CD.

Steve Warner continues to build upon an already solid musical legacy. Will it carry on? You bet it will!

Songwriter & founder of Cedar Run Music Camps
"Somewhere between John Prine and the late Steve Goodman, singer/songwriter Steve Warner has been marking out his territory for many years. A writer and singer with a unique ability to zero in on human truths, whether in the context of a ballad, a straight-out country tune, or a humorous parody, Steve is, above all things, true to an honest and direct appraisal of the world around him. Steve Warner's newest CD, Carry On, really brings home the broad range of this man's musical vision. Along with his longtime cohorts, the Rolling Coyotes (Nancy Lynn and Andy Mosholder) and a great group of supporting musicians, Steve infuses Carry On with an authenticity that's hard to find on a CD these days. From the evocative Civil War love story, "Annabel Lee," through the hard light of the leaving song "Save It for a Rainy Day," and on to the wry toe-tapper "Make My Cot Where the Cot Cot Cotton Grows," Steve leads the listener through an eclectic collection of tunes that is unified by the front-porch feel of the instrumental tracks and the plaintive honesty of a voice that speaks the truth."
