Steve in Ohio 4


45103 US   Feb 2016

Artist Bio

Influences:   Bluegrass, acoustic blues, acoustic rock, country rock, old timey. I also like a lot of the new Americana stuff - Avett Bros, Jason Isbell, Scott Miller are all favs. Also into Haggard, the Beatles, Flatt and Scruggs, Larry Sparks, Chris Stapleton, and the list goes on.

This is year 4 for me. I've never been able to finish 14 songs. But 2019 is the year to hit the bell. I've been working on my upper body strength and am ready to swing the big mallet!

I play acoustic music and I'm in a bluegrass/Americana band. My main instrument is mandolin - I love the mandolin, and I also play some guitar. However, for some weird reason that I just can't seem to pin down, I tend to write most of my original stuff on ukulele. I like the simplicity and versatility of the instrument...and it's just plain fun to play! I'm trying to approach 2019 a bit differently than past years. I now have a simple studio set up and will be using Garageband (unless of course I panic and resort back to the Spire app in my iPhone.

    Thanks for your comment on Winter Light Festival! Believe me, I'm fighting the tech trying to get a file I can upload! It turns out my iPod GarageBand app records MP4s instead to MP3s. Going to have to find software to covert MP4 files to MP3s. Unfortunately we forgot to have children (tech support) when we were young!

    I'm sure that you will musicify "I'm Not Waiting For My Dreams" beautifully....Have at it my friend!

    I put one on with you in mind. Perhaps you would be interested in My Dad's Old Farm

    Hi Steve -- I'm game for a collab, but I push myself pretty hard to write a song per day, and that gets challenging sometimes, so I can't guarantee being highly available. I'd love to give it a shot though.

    Hi to you, too! Maybe another bluegrass collab or two this year, too? (Having you post on my soundboard inspired me to pick up the banjo!)

    I have an idea in mind that might be something we can work with.

    I hope we can find a way to work together again this year. I'm now 82 but still kicking.
