Steve Carlson's highly anticipated, new album - "Groovin On the Inside" has been released. The album promises to awe and inspire listeners, combining elements of rock, funk, soul, R&B and as expected- poignant and gripping ballads, with which Carlson's fans have come to love and expect.
"Groovin' on the Inside" is Carlson's first, full-length collaboration with Music Producer and friend, Darren Sher. Upon completion of recording the album, Jeff Juliano (John Mayer, Dave Matthews, O.A.R., etc.) was brought in to mix the project. It was then that all the ingredients fell into place, ensuring an exciting and passionate album that will undoubtedly become an instant classic.
Carlson's signature, raspy, soulful voice, together with his intuitive lyrics and melodies, combine on this album, creating a comfortable transition from song to song. From the funky, "get up and dance" numbers, "If it Ain't Easy", "Wonder of My World", and the remake of the classic Zombie's hit, "She's Not There" - to the ballads, "Pinata Novia", "I'll Remember You", and "Now That My Love Is Gone" - Carlson demonstrates once again his passion for music, song-writing and life. Carlson further pleases listeners with his powerful "Hole In Me", the R & B inspired "The One I Want", the whimsical and romantics "Wasted Jaime" and "You Belong To Me", culminating with the unexpected finale in "She Loves", which takes the listener completely by surprise with it's opera infused, psychedelic crescendo reminiscent of a 60’s classic.
"Groovin' On The Inside" could not be a more appropriate title for this inspired album. The transition between these different styles flow effortlessly and create a joyful, yet aching experience for the listener. After listening to this album from beginning to end, one truly feels like they are "Groovin' On The Inside".
