Steve Carlson – A Storyteller’s Music

Steve Carlson is an eclectic musician whose music is refreshingly uncommercial in its sound and presentation and has the kind of straight from the heart openness to it the likes of Jim Croce and Harry Chapin while combining that with the rollicking soul of rock music in its early days bringing to mind the energy and driving rhythm of Jerry Lee Lewis and Buddy Holly. Yet all of this is combined into a style of musical storytelling that is uniquely the heart of Steve Carlson.

In 2004 Steve Carlson formed The Steve Carlson Band along with Bassist Steve Dress, Drummer Timothy Jimenez and Saxophonist David Olivas. Together with his band and such noted guest back-up vocalist as musician Jason Manns and actor Jensen Ackles (Supernatural), The Steve Carlson Band released the highly successful CD Rolling On in 2005. Steve Carlson has recently released a new CD titled Grooving on the Inside, which was his first full length collaboration with Music Producer and friend Darrin Sher. Carlson is also busy recording his first Album for RCA Records titled Kane.

Eclipse Magazine caught up with musician Steve Carlson after his return from his recent trip to London where he performed with his band to talk about his upcoming East Coast concert dates and his return trip to London, this time going solo without his band. For London, Carlson already has a sold out show going on at Halfmoon Putney on Monday July 23rd at 9PM with another show scheduled at Barfly in London on Thursday July 26th at 9PM.

“I am really looking forward to my travels to the East Coast and England. I just got back from London and I feel a great sense of warmth from the crowds there” Carlson tells us about why he is returning to England and then going on to a gig in New York City at The Bitter End “I am playing these next few shows solo without my band. They will consist of myself and a guitar and will be very much a "storytellers" format.”

Steve Carlson is going to be very much ‘unplugged’ with his music at these solo concerts telling Eclipse that he may just jump on a stool and tell a few tales of inspiration. “It feels great every once and awhile to strip the songs down to how I wrote them,” Carlson says of his music. “It also allows me to set my own pace, at times even disregard time and tempo. I hope everyone who can make it out enjoys the set.”
