ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Alphabet Songs Volume III (Rabbit Run) is the third and final CD in the Alphabet Songs series Like the first two volumes, it dedicates a single song to each letter of the alphabet and covers the letters R through Z. The songs are upbeat, catchy, folk-based tunes about the things that are important to kids and their parents.

BIOGRAPHY

Singer/songwriter Steve Weeks was born in the rural countryside of the Carolinas. He spent his summers in the bucolic fields of....

Okay, it's me... Steve. Here I am writing my own biography. Most musicians' bios seem to be written from some adoring, anonymous person, but it just feels kind of funny talking about yourself that way, so I thought I'd just reveal myself up front. Here's my bio straight from the horse's mouth.

I actually was born and raised in the Carolinas, South Carolina to be specific. I spent my summers mostly playing around in the woods and in abandoned cotton fields. Occasionally in the mountains, occasionally at the beach... the Carolinas are beautiful in that way.

As young as I can remember, music was everywhere. It rang out in church. It was passed from person to person at the community bluegrass jams in the old abandoned one-room schoolhouse up the road. It breathed out of the furnace vents at night when someone in the house was plunking on our old upright piano. It was quietly hummed on the front porch swing, shouted out during long car trips, and whistled in the garden. I guess it’s no wonder that I turned out to be a songwriter.

I sang in the choir, played in the school band, and tinkered around with just about any instrument I could get my hands on. In college at the University of South Carolina, I started playing the guitar, mainly because I had no access to a piano and my roommate wouldn't have appreciated trumpet recitals. I played in a couple of bands, collaborated on various recording projects, and discovered the joy of writing songs.

I now live in Colorado with my beautiful wife and our two wonderful kids. I write, record and perform original music for children and their families. Being a father myself, I find that this music comes naturally and from the heart. It’s always easiest to write music from a place of sincerity. I have a huge interest in musical diversity that also finds its way into my songwriting. Although my songs have a strong footing in folk music, I just can’t resist squeezing that reggae bass line, 50’s rock riff, African thumb piano or even a tin can into one of my tunes.

Alphabet Songs is a series of CDs of original music that dedicates a single song to each letter of the alphabet. The songs are upbeat, catchy tunes about the things that are important to kids and their parents, things like courage, tolerance, pancakes, kangaroos, patience, and, most of all, friends.

My songs receive airplay on various radio stations across the US and are regularly featured on XM Kids (XM Radio Channel 116). The music has received rave reviews from DJs, music critics and parents alike. Kenny Curtis, program manager of XM Kids, called them “...honest, well-crafted songs that appeal to kids, parents... and anyone who doesn't mind having a pleasant melody bouncing around in their head for a day or two.” I perform at music festivals, schools, bookstores, coffe shops, radio stations and private concerts and volunteer at a local elementary school teaching songwriting workshops.

By far, the most rewarding part of being a musician is when people tell me that they listen to Alphabet Songs as a family. For me, music has always been about bringing friends, family and community together, and I’m very proud to be contributing to this tradition. I love performing for a group of children and watching as the parents gradually shift up into the circle to hear a little better... and spend some time with their kids.

I love these CDs
I've enjoyed Vol 3 as much as the first two, maybe even more than my kids do. I love having some children's music that I don't mind listening to over and over and over....

I enjoy this CD just as much as my children do!
We were so excited that Vol III came out just before Christmas. It is the perfect gift for all the kids in our extended family. They all have Vol I and II and just love them. This CD, like all of Steve's music, is fun for all ages! My kids love to listen to particular songs over-and-over-and-over until they learn all the words. Samantha (6 years old) has already mastered 'Rabbit Run' as is now on to 'Up', her next favorite. Matthew (3 years old) loves 'I can't play the Violin'. Of course, I would rather listen to the entire CD all the way through.. but the songs are so good I don't mind setting the REPEAT button to keep the kids singing along and Mom happy driving them to and from school. Now Steve, 'Zed and Zoey' promises that this is 'NOT THE END'. We can't wait to hear what's next!

Alphabet Songs Vol I, II, III
This music is so wonderful! It's charming, fun, radiant, glowing, warm, wise and generally enchanting. It speaks to what I value in life, and the values I want to pass along to my children. I'm so grateful for this music!!
