ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Steve Baskin is an Atlanta-based singer/songwriter. His debut album "I Sometimes Think" offers a wide range of musical styles, but there's an unmistakable Southern fried taste in this power pop and rock & roll.

Steve played and sang all of the tracks on the record. He joined up with long-time friend, bandmate and writing partner, Trey Hollingsworth, on "How I Feel" and "Where You Are". He worked with Breckinridge-based Mary Dean on "Trip Begin". Tracy Carmen Brown helped out lyrically on "Bad Idea". Even John Lennon and Paul McCartney have writing credits on the record with Steve's sultry take on "A Hard Day's Night".

Steve's early musical career as spent touring the South fronting a 10-piece R&B band called Hugo A Gogo. Playing with R&B and Soul legends including Sam & Dave, The Shirelles, Percy Sledge, Carla Thomas, Mary Wells and Archie Bell. The band even opened for The Beach Boys on their 25th anniversary tour. He began to understand the mystery of power pop working as the lead guitar and backup vocalist for the Atlanta-based Hippycrickets to support the band's debut album "Inconceivable". (A great record by the way!)

More recently, Steve was the guitarist/vocalist with The Cindy Wilson Band (an album-project featuring Cindy Wilson of the B52s). The band played festivals, major clubs and TV gigs, including a national broadcast of Live from Music Midtown on Turner South, sharing the stage for a songwriters get-together with June Carter Cash, Don McLean, Mike Mills, Edwin McCain, Angie Aparo and Tony Rich. The thrill of the night - perhaps of a lifetime - was playing "May the Circle Be Unbroken" with June Carter Cash and family.

Not Lame Recordings compared Steve’s debut album with John Mayer, Toad the Wet Sprocket and Duncan Sheik and notes that the record is "highly recommended". Creative Loafing said “Power-pop aficionados looking for some new stuff from the deep underground, try out Atlanta-based singer/songwriter Baskin's new effort. All the touchstones are in place: grabby tunes, stacked (but not heavy) guitars, shiny vocal harmonies.” The Valdosta Daily Times describes the effort as “a poppy blend of groove and soul with a nice slice of edge.” Southern Fried Magazine exclaims that Steve’s “got a great rockin’ sound”. Paste Magazine featured the opening track, “How I Feel”, on one of its heralded compilation CDs.

Jangly pop with lots of guitar on top
Steve jangles thru a pleasing compilation of easygoing, electro-acoustic, guitar-driven folk/pop tunes showcasing merrily melodic hooks and sweeepingly sonic production. What's not to like?
