ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Combining elements of calypso, soca, reggae and jazz, guitarist Steven Springer is high on energy, loaded with variable time signatures and obviously a labor of love. Born and raised on the island of Trinidad in the Caribbean. Steven learned to play the guitar at a young age. "As a boy growing up in Trinidad there was always music around me from the Calypso to Bossa Nova to Pop. There were also many steel bands, who were always playing in the yards in every neighborhood."

Added to this mixture was the pulsating African rhythms, the reggae beat, the Indian percussion sounds and popular rock, folk and jazz music from the US and England.

Springer has been traveling the world playing his guitar, since his late teenage years. His band in Phoenix, Arizona was voted band of the year for three years, and won Album of the Year, in the 1980s. Touring in the USA and Caribbean, Springer performed at the 1988 World's Fair in Brisbane, Australia, with the Trinidad Calpyso Band. Upon returning to the US, after touring Australia, South Pacific and Europe for a year, Springer joined the world famous TRINIDAD TRIPOLI STEELBAND. In the 1990s he won "Best Guitar Player" for four years in a row at the Detroit Annual Best of Music Awards. He has also performed on and produced twentyone albums/cds in his career, including jingles for radio and television.

Springer's skillfully played guitar with elements of jazz, rock, samba, as well as calypso and reggae can be heard throughout these songs. A very pleasant sound that's easy on the ears and cheers the heart. The vocals are taken care of by the singers Springer has played with through-out the years.
