Never a Long Way Home

by Steff Mahan

Having long since hit her stride, Steff Mahan's third CD successfully captures her witty, charming and soul-wrenching gifts. Steff needs no overproduction. This CD was taken into the studio and recorded live, and it emotionally delivers the cathartic moods of the songs. The listener is taken on a soulful journey mirroring the ups and downs of life. Narrated by the beautiful singing voice that so eloquently composes life's most important moments, this CD is bound to move any listener.

Album Notes
Dedicated in memory of Amy Nawy and to winning this Breast Cancer battle once and for all.

To be quite honest I had given up on any chance of ever doing a third recording. It just felt like life and circumstance kept getting in the way of my ever achieving such an outlandish ambition. But as I do, I kept writing songs...not because I thought they would ever make it to the studio, but because it's what I do to keep my sanity, to take every single secret hiding inside of me, and set it free in hopes of finding just one someone who may feel what I feel. And when this miracle happens and one of you tells me how a song hit home for you, suddenly that one, simple statement from you can validate me and erase any doubt, even at my lowest moments of disbelief. This is powerful stuff...that and Kacy's "You're not giving up" attitude.

To begin to say thank you to everyone individually who made this record happen would be almost impossible. Making this album a reality had a whole lot to do with so many loving me when I needed it most, when I was broken, when I was living these songs. You know who you are. Also to my family (this includes Jada, Mack, Gwen, Phil, Darcey, Dean & the musicians) and my own circle of love. I owe you my deep thanks and my gratitude.

No one likes to admit she is lost and not sure of the next step. And as I traveled across the country and back, nothing felt right. I guess it took all those miles for me to discover that home was right in front of me. What I realized is that it's never a long way home when I have a guitar in my hand and words in my heart and friends to whom to sing my songs. All those miles across interstates and country roads brought me home to you and, in a way, helped me find myself again.

As I am,

Excellent as always, Steff has outdone herself again. The long-awaited new CD is a hit in my book! As always, the songs are stories from the heart of this fantastic songwriter and performer. They make you smile, laugh, cry, and fill your heart with love! Can't wait to get my copies and share them for Christmas this year. Keep doing what you are doing! We all love you!!!!


Just when you thought she couldn't get any better!! An amazingly talented writer & vocalist with an insight into the depths of all our thoughts & feelings. Steff in an entertainer in a league all of her own. There is a good chance if you are reading this, you have already at some time had the opportunity to hear and/or see her perform live. These songs on this CD are, in my opinion, some of her best songs ever!! I honestly believe that this is the one that will take her over the top -wherever that might be! So happy her CD was released in time for Christmas giving - because giving is what her music does!! xox Steff & all I can say is you shine!!
