ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Arrow Creek is Steve Madewell\'s sophomore effort and it\'s a picturesque portfolio of songcraft in the vein of Livingston Taylor and Richard Shindell. The disc\'s 14 songs spin a range of personal tales and introspection to longing for a simpler, bygone era.

While acoustic-minded, not all the arrangements on Arrow Creek are sparse or plaintive; vocalist Caroline Quine offers lush vocals to two-part harmonies that soar and lilt on the set-closer \"Driven,\" making the tune particularly memorable.
Cool Cleveland Managing Editor Peter Chakerian

Steve Madewell’s ‘Arrow Creek’ features ‘meticulous songcraft’
Music this quiet and peaceful doesn’t usually make you think. Singer/songwriter Steve Madewell is definitely rooted in the late ’60s-early ’70s generation of folk-pop crossover musicians such as Bob Dylan, James Taylor, and Don McLean. Madewell comes across as a born storyteller, but his tales are not necessarily his own.
By Lucinda Coyne - The Calm Cafe

Steve Madewell achieves inner peace through acoustic beauty on ‘Arrow Creek’
Was there an album released last year which had the handmade intimacy of Steve Madewell’s Arrow Creek? You can probably only count the number of such records on one hand. As far as acoustic folk and Adult Contemporary releases went, Madewell was in a space all his own.
Carson James - Hellhound on My Trail

What an odd coincidence to receive singer/songwriter Steve Madewell’s Arrow Creek shortly after hearing the news about Dan Fogelberg’s death. While I’m not exactly sure how much influence Fogelberg had on Madewell, they certainly share the same spirit.
The dramatic tension in Madewell’s guitar playing is palpable, especially on “Miami Wind” and “Meet Me in Saint Louis.” On “Climb,” Madewell strikes for an atmospheric, cinematic vibe and nails it perfectly. Musically and lyrically, there is much to savor on Arrow Creek.
Jessica Shearer - Twang Town

There is plenty of beautiful music on this CD, enough to fill a couple of records, actually. The title cut offers a lush nighttime landscape and \"Wrapped Inside Your Love\" is as warm as a fireplace. Madewell leans toward to country territory but doesn\'t completely give in until \"Wound Too Tight,\" which recalls vintage Willie Nelson. This is an outstanding acoustic folk album, packed with emotion and soul.
Adam Harrington - Whisperin & Hollerin

Caroline Quine provides wonderful harmonies in several songs and sings the folk rocker Drivin. Bill Lestock provides slide octave mandolin on Climb, Dave Pethel plays banjo on In The Blink Of An Eye and Bill Watson (of Hill Billy Idol) plays both upright bass and bowed bass on several songs.

\"Lyrically and musically it is a very solid piece of work.\" Janet Podalec, News Herald review Sept 2007.

Arrangements vary from extremely open and bare to more lush guitar and accompaning instruments.

Great Songs, Steve!!! I love them all. Is This What We Have Become is one of my favorites along with several others. You have put your heart and talent into this. Great job with the musical instruments and what an awesome harmony with Caroline Quine. Great! Great!
