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 Bonasso 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".
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.
I Sometimes Think features a handful of Billboard Songwriting Award winners, including Beside You, Trip Begin and Bad Idea.
A South Georgia native, Steve started playing the rock and the roll at a young age. In addition to the talented rockers he shares the stage with today, Steve has played/toured/shared the stage with greats, Grammy Award winners and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees including Sam Moore (Sam & Dave), The Shirelles, Carla Thomas, Mary Wells, Percy Sledge, The Beach Boys, Cindy Wilson (B52s) and Rob Thomas among others.
