Steve in Ohio 7

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 5 for me. I've never been able to finish 14 songs. But 2020 just might be 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 2020 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.

    Thank you so much for being a part of my dad's FAWM (@srcoops)... Let me know if it would be ok to have your song on his Bandcamp compilation album. If it is ok and you are able, please feel free to send me the WAV version to zecoop at yahoo dot com. Also let me know what info you would like to be included on Bandcamp. Thank you once again!!! 😀

    Steve, Thank you for your comments on my song, Dirtman

    Hi Steve, thanks for your comments on "Earth's Bucket List." I thought about the part that tourism plays in the problem, the song couldn't hold one more complicated idea! This was also my entry in the "wandering" challenge. I hope to get music for this, though I'm lagging on writing new stuff to make it to 14.

    That would be fine! I’d love that!

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 12

    Oh yes!!! That was you and it was beautiful!!! So sorry!

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 12

    Hi Steve, I do not believe we did, but I always welcome collaborators!

  • @jeustan  Feb 11

    Thank you so much for listening to "Near Misses." I am definitely looking for new avenues after this FAWM, that's what it's all about! I was channelling Justin Townes Earle's first couple records (Steve Earle's son). Check him out.

    Glad you liked my take on the "In the Fog" prompt. I must admit I didn't start recording until 21:50 Barcelona time. I like to get my lyrics as compact as possible, even for a draft like this.

    Thanks for the listen and comments on my Week 2 challenge song, a new computer will be the only solution to my recording woes, unfortunately.

    ´Glad you liked my song "Somewhere". I like to think she escaped to a place where she could be herself. But I think she took the gun in case her awful family caught up with her. I hope she never got to use it. The song is one of those stories which stop at a certain point and then allow the reader to imagine the continuation.

    Sent you an email as well!

    I have used the muse before, mainly the lyric cloud when I get stuck!

  • @mccannrs Feb 7

    I'm definitely down to do a collab! I'm pretty new to the banjo but doing something in the Bluegrass style would be awesome.

  • @srcoops  Feb 7

    Glad you like it. Looking forward to hearing you do it.

  • @srcoops  Feb 7

    I wrote The Hills Are Calling with you in mind. Take a shot if you like it.
