Where I Belong

by Steve Benoit

This Canadian transplant credits his rural Ontario roots while ignoring boundaries and taking musical chances. It all results in a soulful, rootsy and deceptively well crafted Americana sound.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
On his debut full-length release 'Where I Belong', Canadian singer-songwriter Steve Benoit's songwriting shines through sparse arrangements and minimal instrumentation. Recorded in Nashville, it's an acoustic record which Steve calls a little bit 'Nebraska' a little bit 'Harvest', with some traditional country elements and a lot of soul. Steve's stellar line up who contributed to the project is: Michael Webb - Piano, Accordion (played with Allison Moorer, Sheryl Crow, and also has worked as a producer with Stacey Earle); Ozzy Osment - Fiddle (played with Kenny Chesney, and a slew of classic country stars such as Webb Pierce and Faron Young); Lee Warren - Pedal Steel (plays with Canadian country star Michelle Wright); Sam Poland - Pedal Steel (played with The Cactus Brothers); Chris Frame - Guitar (who in 2005 began playing with Son Volt); and Nancy Middleton, a singer-songwriter from North Carolina who adds beautiful background vocals to most of the tracks. Also included on the cd is a track Steve cut in his Native Northern Ontario for a compilation entitled 'Spirit of the North'. 'The Great Fire of 1922' is a true story of a fire that ravaged his hometown 80 years ago and is getting National airplay in Canada. Steve brought the members of his band 'The Box Elders' which are drummer Ken Griffin (who has recorded with the great Merle Haggard) and his wife Ruth on Bass..they make a tight rhythm section. The Cd was engineered and co-produced by local roots-rocker Dutch who's also worked with New Orleans Honky-Tonker Kim Carson as well as a list of his own bands.

Allan Benoit (no relation) that I know of

WOW ! are you sure we ain't family ? great stories and songs
Are we twin brothers of different mothers ?? I just got done listening to this CD for the 3rd time this afternoon and every time I do I come away with a feeling of happiness and saddness at the same time . For a songwriter to be able to convey both feelings is rare , Steve you have a rare gift , use it wisely and you will do great things . I gotta tell every one that this CD is a keeper from start to finish , there are more than a few great songs on this CD , BLOOD IS THICKER THAN WATER is an outstanding song , it made me think of my family . EMPTY NEST is also a very good song , my God this whole CD is just " FIVE STAR " you have to buy this CD it will add class to any collection and bring the buyer hour after hour of listening enjoyment , oh ya the surprize ending was pure class and grace , everyone needs this CD ... GREAT CD STEVE..

Paralyzing
I sat in my office today in disbelief of how quickly the time passed listening to this CD. I tried to describe it to my co-works, but failed to capture the words. So I post this question: What does it mean when you are paralyzed with emotion beyond what words can explain? That's how I felt today.
