Steevan Mars If Not Now...When?
Singer/songwriter/guitarist, Steevan Mars writes songs that are as sad as they are catchy - melody driven pop songs with classic rock undertones and a modern edge. If The Eagles hung out with Death Cab for Cutie and Neil Young wrote songs with U2, it may sound like Steevan Mars….maybe not. Mars’ musical style is truly his own drawing on influences across the rock map from 60’s British invasion to 70’s LA rock to 80’s/90’s Alternative.
Listen to the record.
Steevan was formerly the lead singer with NJ studio-alternative/pop band, Joyseed, where he sharpened his songwriting skills, showing early on that he had a strong sense of melody and chord progression -without taking a single music class and only a few guitar lessons. Joyseed recorded more than 20 songs - most of which were Mars’ originals. Always one to write about matters of the heart - Steevan’s lyrics are personal and seem to come from the core of his soul, You may think, is he singing about me? This latest collection of songs such as, Long Time and Fall Away, are no different -they really have that feeling that he is in tune with the everyday emotions that go with love and loss.
You can find SM this Spring/Summer 2008 on an acoustic tour, slowly promoting the record and picking up fans along the way. In the spirit of Springsteen or Bon Jovi, this New Jersey-based singer-songwriter is a dynamic performer who connects with his fans. And let’s not forget the songs - just a bunch of great songs - and more to come. But for now, listen to the record….
