Fallin' In, Fallin' Out
Thank God For The Radio

Born in Essex, England, Steve gained his first big break when he appeared as John Denver on the T.V. programme, "Stars In Your Eye's" in 1996, on which he performed "Annie's Song". In the winter of 1998 he was invited to join Forever In Blue Jeans, a high-class professional touring show that encapsulated the whole world of country music. The show played the major theatre circuit throughout the UK, and proved to be a another important stepping stone for Steve and his career.

There is no doubting Steve's vocal resemblance to John Denver, but this latest album gives him the chance to stand on his own merit, with only one of the 14 tracks on here.....a good cover of "Sunshine".........coming from J.D. Steve also gets to showcase his own talent for writing, with 4 self penned songs, that sit well alongside covers of some country classics. The title track "Fallin' In, Fallin' Out," was very deservedly named Song Of The Year at the UK Country Radio Awards earlier this year, while other self penned tracks include "So Many Love Songs," a tribute to his father in, "That Dad Of Mine" and "Where The Tree's Are Green" a song that tells of a longing to live away from the hustle and bustle of city life. For the rest of the album, Steve has chosen some classic tracks that include good cover's of Steve Goodmans "City Of New Orleans," the Kendalls, "Thank God For The Radio" and Dean Martins "Little Ol' Wine Drinker Me" among others.

Personally, I would have preferred a few more original or less well covered songs, but people do tend to be more attracted to an album from a new artist, if it contains songs they know. That said, "Fallin' In, Fallin' Out," is a very enjoyable album from a young man who must surely have a bright future ahead of him and I have no hesitation in recommending you check it out!
