ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Steve Whelan a family man and patron of Youghal in Southern Ireland has a very down to earth approach delivering his music with a spirit of honesty presence and grit. His smokey vocals married with his simple but poetic and addictive melodies produces a musical honesty and edge posessed by few writer composers. His influences range from Ben harper ,Cat Stevens , The Beatles to Gospel and Spiritual music. From the opening MAKE THAT CHANGE steve ventures through the doors of his influeneces and emerges with his own statement.He sings - Wistful,-'LIKE BEES' and YOUNG LOW,angry CURSED MEMORIES,celebratory MAKE THAT CHANGE earnest THE LAST WALK yearnng DONT YOU CRY. All this and always captivating,the songs reflect a musical artist with a rare aspect:sincerity.Changes come and changes go-what is wrong and what is right-The world is full of changes,those words undline this albums brilliantly unassuming message each song,like family members sparks off one another but is bound by they're direction from the heart to the listner steve's reluctant ego allows his songwrintng quality to merge perfectly with his backing musicians on THE LAST WALK Its a labour of love so step up and have a listen. The album recorded at Claycastle studios Youghal features A band of brothers Bobby Lee-guitar,bass & Backing vocals Tony Kylie - Guitar Jason Brown & Michael Twomey - bass Kieran McCarthy & Neill Whyte - Drums George simkin - Guitar “

The Last Walk
I love this album. It arrived in the mail only a few days ago and already I have played it many times. Steve Whelan is an exceptional songwriter who writes his songs with a message. His voice is raw yet warm. A beautiful combination that touches the listener. Jesus Walks and Cruel Velvet leave me almost breathless from beginning to end. They are very powerful songs that beg for the replay button. Buy this CD. You will not be disappointed.

The Last Walk
Highly recommended album in which Steve bares his soul and throws it, legs akimbo for all to explore. From 1 - 11 this is a world class offering, illustrating his many and varied influences, traces of which crop up rarely more than once. His range of vocal tone takes you from the gravelly, glass gargler to the sweet, angelic chorister and the clear simplicity of the production puts to shame those who utilise gimmick to hide their lack of proficiency. Well done Steve. More please.
