ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Steve Carlson is a seasoned musician who has lived life and written parables that are almost visual. His own dynamic, combined with that of his collaborators, creates a presentation that brings stories to life." - Music Connection 2005
Born and raised in Southern California, Carlson had a bohemian upbringing in an artistic family. He developed an appreciation for music early on and at the age of ten he began writing songs, playing guitar and eventually found himself performing in local bands throughout high school. A fan of artists that include many genres, Steve credits The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, Taj Mahal, Stevie Ray Vaughan, The Eagles, Van Morrison, Led Zeppelin and The Rolling Stones as some of his biggest influences.
With a desire to travel after graduation, Steve moved to Maui, where he learned to play the acoustic slide guitar and the mandolin, both of which would eventually become a major influence in his songwriting. Carlson returned home to Los Angeles and in 2003 he released his first solo album "Spot in the Corner", an entirely self-produced project that showcased his many talents. "Though he evokes some of the best singers/songwriters of the seventies, Carlson has a modern edge and a neo-country aroma to his work that sets it apart. 'Spot In The Corner,' his full length CD, presents a thoughtful, skillful artist and his backup players." - Music Connection - 2004
In 2004, he formed The Steve Carlson Band along with bass player Steve Dress, a graduate of the Juilliard School, drummer Tim Jimenez, a California native who was an original member of the legendary 'Rave-Ups', signed to Epic Records, and saxophonist David Olivas, who earned his performance degree from the Berklee College of Music. Together they have become a constant on the L.A. club scene, selling out venues and awing both fans and critics alike. "Like a lot of the classic artists we've known and loved, Steve Carlson's ensemble does what rock & roll did in the Fifties... Funk, blues, rockabilly and country, all wind up in the mix, and it's as accessible as Hootie & the Blowfish were several years back. Carlson is just a bit more gritty and dangerous than those boys, and the girls swoon a lot more because of it." - Music Connection - 2005
With the bands' highly anticipated album "Rollin On" due to be released in June of 2005, they are looking forward to showcasing their talents on a worldwide stage.

Amy

Absolutely amazing! I love it! It stays in my car cd player!
I never expected to get so hooked on this CD, it's great. It's not often you can find a good cd that you love all the songs. GREAT!!

Linda

awsome
I got interested in his music by listening to Kane first of all and i love the cd, i can't stop playing it. I can't wait for the next one.

aurelia

Awesome
After listening so many times to "Rollin on'", I just had to buy this album too. It sounds so great.

Angie

Terrific sing-along tunes
I love "Come Around More Alabama", but I woke up the other day singing "Radio in my Head", in my head. I've been looking for a new style of music and this is it. I bought Rollin' On at the same time and like it as well.

Jacynthe

Can't get any better than that!
I cannot believe I spent so long without even knowing about Steve Carlson! I bought this CD because of the song Come Around More Alabama (I'm a huge Jensen Ackles fan and he sings back vocals on it), but what surprises me most is that this is not the only song I listen to. There isn't one bad track on this whole album!

Erin

Thank you Steve and Jensen!
I learned about Steve Carlson through Jensen Ackles (Love You Jensen!!). I am so glad I did, because Steve is so talented. This CD is awesome! Come Around More Alabama is my favorite! I'm from Alabama, so I am flipping out over that song! He and Jensen did a wonderful job on it! Bravo Steve!
