ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Soaring is the fan-demanded recording that features Steve Eulberg's original and traditional acoustic music woven together by mountain and hammered dulcimers and guitar. He is supported by Northern Colorado musicians, Heather Wegter, Kevin Jones, Mike Moxcey, Carole & Teresa Lundgren and Russ Hopkins.

The title track has been chosen for the soundtrack of PBS' show RoadTrip Nation #10 (which aired in the summer of 2005) and for an accompanying DVD!

This is Eulberg's 4th solo release on the Owl Mountain Music label. The tracks, "Uncle Jim's Song" and "I Am a Pond," from Soaring have spent 8 and 4 months respectively on the Music Reviews Independent Radio Charts from New York since the album's release in August 2001.

Eulberg is a championship caliber instrumentalist (he has won 2nd and 3rd place in the National Mountain Dulcimer Contest (1998 & 2001) and was a finalist in the National Hammered Dulcimer Contest (1999) in Winfield, Kansas.

Reviewers say about Soaring, "...spicy guitar work just right, crafting the mellow vocals into a James Taylor house, built with pride. Good cd to brighten a day off even further. -Ben Ohmart, Muses Muse CD Reviews

"Incredible instrumental abilities!" Keith Baker

"Just like Zappa, Eulberg has a sense of humor that comes through in his lyrics. "Another Winter's Day in Colorado" and "Orphan Train" are both finely crafted songs that touch the emotions. ...The instrumental work, such as the excellent opening track on Soaring, is a different story-shimmering, clear and clean. Eulberg produces some of the finest acoustic instrumental recordings in the region-a music that goes beyond words." -Tim Van Schmidt, Riff Magazine

"Very good playing, and very thoughtful songwriting. I resonated with his choice of topics, and appreciated his using music to express these sorrowful and blissful parts of human experience." --Bonnie Carol, National Dulcimer champion

"Eulberg is a championship-caliber hammered and mountain dulcimer player."
-Dulcimer Players News

"The mountain dulcimer, fiddle and jaw harp work magic on 'Soaring.'" -Wil Owen, Rambles.net

From glittering mountain and hammered dulcimer with mouth harp thrown in, to fun-loving, smile-inducing folkgrass, to soaring, John Denver-style country folk to a kicked back feel teetering on "Jimmy Buffet in Appalachia," there's a curiously catchy make-up to this blood-warming album- like a warm, wooly blanket thrown over the "Folk" genre. No matter which track happens to melt you and tug at your instincts, the sincerity and heart of the whole is unmistakable.

I love this CD! I play it as I am traveling around in Kansas, Missouri and Iowa
In my job I do some traveling on the road at times. Listening to Soaring has been wonderful. The songs keep flowing in my mind long after the trip is over and sometimes I just wish I could just travel to Colorado! Thanks Steve!

James Babcock

Top-notch dulcimer instrumentals and socially and spirtually engaging lyrics
ANYONE who likes the traditional and original songs of the hammered and mountain dulcimer will want to own a copy of Soaring. Steve Eulberg weaves a personal sound with deep roots in instrumentals like Soaring, Lake Ozark Blues (blues dulcimer? yes, that's right he bends a mt. dulcimer string to get the flatted fifth), Simple Gifts, Reluctant Busboy, and the hauntingly beautiful Noel New-Velet.

Steve's ability to write and perform great lyrics shines as brightly as his instrumental viruosity on this CD. His words convincingly come right out of his life experiences and address important spiritual and social issues. I particularly love Orphan Train, Uncle Jim's Song, and (6-String)Mail Order Bride, and Maquiladora; all original songs by Steve.

I own about 4,000 albums, CDs, and tapes; and Soaring is definitely one of my favorites.

Soaring - an inspirational experience!
Soaring definitely lifts the spirits and keeps them in a heightened state of expectation! Eulberg and friends continue to inspire with their wonderfully crafted music and warm, humorous lyrics. In the beauty of this music, we are reminded of the complexity of our humanity and encouraged to take ourselves "just seriously enough." What better result for musicians who clearly love what they do!
