ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Stevi Marie is a gifted young songwriter living in Portland, OR whose Americana rock music and exciting live performances are lifting her up as one of the area's most popular up and coming artists. With vocals reminiscent of Rosanne Cash, great trumpet chops, and tasty guitar licks, she has fused the best of 70's and 80's rock and country music with a modern songwriting sensibility. Her cross-generational sound is resonating with listeners of all ages.

With an eye for classic guitars, a quick wit, and a passion for making music, Stevi Marie breaks the mold of today's typical young artist. Drawing from greats like Mary Chapin Carpenter & Bruce Springsteen, her songs speak out on many different levels- sometimes politically, sometimes as an advocate for women, but always as a conscious woman coming of age in today's world. As versatile a musician as she is a songwriter, Stevi not only sings, plays trumpet and guitar, but also plays the bass, and drums. All this combined with a confident, vibrant presence and Stevi Marie will draw even the most shy listener into the fray.

In October of 2006, "Stevi Marie & Jackson Road" performed at one of the Northwest's most historic venues, "The Aladdin Theatre". The event was a success and the show was packed. The band featured Matt Burnett on piano, Jason Barlow on lead guitar and fiddle, Greg Jackson on bass and vocals, Jason Lusk on drums, and Paul Brainard on pedal steel. It was a blast!!!

In Jan. of 2006 Stevi and her band, "Stevi Marie & Jackson Road", placed 3rd out of 200 bands in a National Battle of the Bands competition held in Las Vegas, NV. In 2005 she was a finalist in the Oregon Symphony Songwriting Contest. She has also received airplay in the U.K., and received national attention on the syndicated radio station, "The Backporch Show".

Stevi Marie Spaulding grew up in the rural Oregon logging town of Scappoose and always had an affinity for music. When she was young she would use her time between chores and chopping wood to practice trumpet and write songs. In high school she was selected as one of ten trumpet players in the state to travel Europe in an elite chamber orchestra. At 17 Stevi was performing her own material in local cafes & coffee shops. She also sang and played in jazz, symphonic, and orchestral groups throughout her college years at Southern Oregon University and Willamette University. Today she has grown to be one of the Northwest's most active performers.

In October 2002 at the ripe age of 22, Stevi went to Nashville to follow her lifelong dream of being a songwriter. After six weeks in Nashville she had to return home. Before boarding a plane, she pitched a few songs to the head publisher at Curb Records, played the world famous Bluebird Cafe, and got a brief taste for the career she always dreamed of. So when she came back to Oregon, she recruited some of the finest musicians in Portland, formed "Stevi Marie & Jackson Road", and began shedding her material. As fate would have it, she ran into the owner of Kinnaman Road Records, who offered to fund an album of all original material.

Her goal is to be a full-time performer, writer, and producer. This year, 2007, will mark year two+ since the record has been released. Stevi is currently writing new songs for her upcoming CD to be co-produced by Miss Marie, Matt Burnett, and Greg Jackson. The CD will feature Stevi's band, including Jason Barlow on lead guitar and fiddle and some of Portland's finest musicians.

The Debut Record
I Thought I Told You beams with personality, capturing the unique retro rock sound of Portland songstress Stevi Marie. A project that took over a year to complete, the album is packed with salient melodies, strong songwriting, and interesting instrumental arrangements.

The albums 12 tunes were recorded under the guidance of producer Gary Ogan at Crossroads Studio in Vancouver, WA and mastered at world renown Marcussen Mastering (Counting Crows, Willie Nelson, Tom Petty, Stevie Nicks, The Rolling Stones) in Los Angeles. "We recorded most of the tracks live with a five piece band and no click track and they really came alive," comments Ogan, whose work on the 1977 Leon & Mary Russell album, Make Love to the Music earned him national recognition as a writer and producer. "I think the whole record stands up song by song." Varied in style and feel, it fluidly moves through up tempo rockers, country two steps, vaulting ballads, and bluesy shuffles all tied together by a string that is carefully hidden in Ogan's production.

I Thought I Told You is packed with a car load of great Portland musicians both young and old. Anthony Jones (drums), Jeff Leonard (bass), Fred Stickley (Hammond B-3, piano), Roby Edwards (alto sax), Tracy Klas (vocals), and Greg Jackson (guitar, vocals) to name a few. Ogan contributed several tracks on drums and vocals while Stevi Marie plays electric guitar on most of the albums tracks and trumpet on four of them. Her edgy yet earnest vocals drive each song home and lend authenticity to the lyrics, always coming across as familiar, comfortable, and real. On the tune "Growing Up," she demonstrates the full range of her musicality, playing all the instruments including drums, Wurlitzer organ, slide guitar, and bass guitar.

I Thought I Told You, was released in September of 2004. Stevi Marie has been touring and playing heavily. She performs on the road solo, as a duo, and with her band, "Jackson Road" in an effort to soak up even more support throughout the Northwest. At a mere 25 Stevi Marie is a young songwriter and performer with a great first effort and a bright future ahead of her.

Great stuff!
Great Stuff! Can't wait to hear more!

Stephen Lewis

Wow, This girl is a songwriter never heard anything quite like this.
Stevi Mari, is a very gifted song writer. Her songs have meaning, what seperates her from so many, is every song is great. I'm on a Roll is a statement about the times and I love it. The song that follows is beautiful, alive and vibrant. I hope this girl goes all the way.

This young performer put on one great CD Release Party
This young performer put on one major CD Release Party in Portland Oregon Oaks Park yesterday. The bands performance was tight, A guitar player I have never heard waa amazing and one of the best I have ever heard. Stevi's voice is smooth as silk somewhere in between Cheryl Crow and Stevi Nicks and sweet as it gets. She is as pretty as her music.The band left me with no doubt Stevi and her band our going places. She not only sings, plays guitar, but Stevi is a great trumpet player. Seems like every publication in the Portland area has written favorable reviews. I had heard about her and was at a picnic next to where the event was being put on and checked it out Everyone was buying CD's, dancing our whole group moved over hope the boss did not get mad. The food was great and people had fun. Stevi Marie and Band the world will find you.

JC Tubbs

Intriguing!
Stevi knows how to rock. But her songs are more than that. The lyrics are intelligent and thought provoking. It took me a couple of listenings to "get into" the CD, but after the third listening, I was hooked. Since I am a songwriter myself, I first listen with a critial ear, and then once I am past that, I listen to enjoy. And I DO enjoy this CD. And great production by Gary Ogen.

Catherine Doudy

Great! Awesome guitar! wonderful variety!
Love the variety, talented vocalist and guitarist. Unique, ecclectic, refreshing. Look forward to hearing more from Stevi Marie!

Peg Reuler

Great sound--really fun to dance to!
I've been listening to Stevi Marie sing these songs for the past year while the CD was being produced. I got my CD at the CD release party which was as unique as Stevi's sound. I have had more fun bopping to her music while driving around! Get this CD--you won't be disappointed!

james

excellent!
Great songs and great performance, what else can you say? She is even more fun to see live if you can catch one of her shows!

Kristy Michaels

THIS CD ROCKS I CAN NOT STOP LISTENING TO IT.
The CD kicks butt. What is so good about this CD? Everything. Listen to this young lady you will see. She plays trumpet, sings, plays guitar has written every song. Every song is good. That is unusual. The sound quality is truely commerical quality I mean radio Play quality. When I turned her muscic up are party turned into an event. Everyone was saying who is that? THe whole party was dancing.

The first review was unsure of the name of the guitar player that played with Stevi's Band. Her bands lead guitar player was in the hospital. So a guitar player by the name of, “BILLY HAGEN” Stevi ask him at the performance he graciusly accepted. Many believe Billy Hagen to be the very best guitar player ever. I listened I must say I have never heard any one better.
