ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Based in Austin Texas, Steve grew up in the shadow of a hill called Bowman Ridge near Stephenville Texas. Born into a family of great story tellers he’s a singer/songwriter who loves to tell a good story. Honest songs about the stuff of life: love and happiness; regret and heartache.

Fortunate enough to grow up within earshot of some great radio stations: KLIF, WBAP & KZEW out of Ft Worth/Dallas; WBAP was the great Ft Worth country station where midnight cowboy Bill Mack held court playing the best, purest county music on the planet. Loretta, Hank, Lefty, Earnest Tubb, Merle, Johnny Cash and on and on. At the same time rock station KZEW, which had the most eclectic playlist of its time, played everything from classic rock to progressive Texas alt/country. All this plus growing up singing gospel music in the rural country church of his youth helped form his musical sensibilities.

According to Steve “When eight track tapes came out the first tape I bought was Merle Haggard, the second was Led Zeppelin. My tastes haven’t changed much; I love pure, gritty, even homely country & Western but can’t resist the strength and power of rock and blues and the emotion of gospel.” That tension is reflected in the sound of his debut album “Flesh and Bone”. A country tinged mix of Rock, Americana, Folk & Gospel. Eleven original songs all written or co-written by Steve.

Sounds like a cross between Bob Dylan, James Taylor and Tom Petty.

Lyrical Genious
Steve Pack's ability to paint a picture with words combined with his soulful velvety voice is incredible! Every song on the album touches the spirit, and the music is terrific. I've had the opportunity to share the CD with people of all ages groups and fans of all different genres of music, and universally there is a common appreciation for Steve's voice. Whether you love Ronnie Milsap, James Taylor, or Dave Matthews, you will find yourself pulled in by the voice, and then incredibly pleased with the lyrical journey. This is one I urge any music lover to check out right away!

Wonderful Contemporary Country/Rock
With an ear for a great melody and the storyteller’s insight for spinning a compelling yarn, Austin-based Steve Pack puts both and more, on display with his fine debut CD, “Flesh & Bone.” Like fellow Texas troubadours Steve Earle or Robert Earl Keen, Pack’s work is based in country-rock but, truly, his songs transcend such narrow definition. Tunes like “Baby Hold On” and the rocking title track, “Flesh & Bone,” feature catchy, radio-ready choruses that would be at home on multiple radio formats; “Bowman Ridge” a song about Pack’s Texas roots, employs delicate cello interludes that defy simple categorization while the opening number, “Like a Dylan,” is reminiscent of master songwriter Tom Petty’s mid-‘80s output, with its balanced, guitar-led fire. Pack’s sure sense of purpose is elsewhere aided by a keen attention to detail, reflected in his band’s sparkling accompaniment and the evocative arrangements that render the album both contemporary and timeless in scope. “Flesh & Bone” ably describes the organic and deep-rooted spirit of Steve Pack’s debut CD, but it’s the Texas blood in this terrific CD that will make its mark with listeners.
