Steve Scott Country is Detroit’s premiere Americana sound. Their dynamic new release, Those Tears I’ve Cried (2013), encompasses many of the sounds that make Detroit great: driving Blues, pounding Rock and soulful Country. Steve Scott recently stated in an interview: “Radio has influenced [musically] everything I do in my life.” Steve unabashedly writes radio ready hits that cleverly interweave classic pop/rock arrangements and rhythm sections, with traditional Bluegrass instrumentation. A sound he and his band like to call Rustbelt Country. This sound is exemplified by popular tunes like: Hide & Seek, Thoughts on Fire, Those Tears and Geronimo. Track 1, I Think About You, winner of The People’s Choice Award Detroit Music Awards 2014, is a lively straight-up Top-40 hit waiting to happen!
Those Tears I’ve Cried, the record, winner of Outstanding Country Recording Detroit Music Awards 2014, is put together the way classic albums always have been: great songs from beginning to end; tunes that are varied, vibrant and belong together – a masterwork where each track guides the listener on a journey that’s complete. Steve’s creative genius is melding different styles and epochs of music that produce a fresh take on today’s country. For example, Lorra has a unique ‘60s kick-ass groove that even Hendrix would dig.
On the other hand, Halo is a brilliantly simple down-home traditional porch-swing classic. Tequilarama is an uplifting fun-in-the-sun; toes-in-the-sand, cowboy fantasy. The track is a creative tour-de-force that merges a full Mariachi sound with a kickback county vibe that’s topped off with a captivating pop/rock arrangement – It’s simply an awesome track!
“Tequilarama is a hit!” Al Sutton. Rustbelt Studios’ Al Sutton (famed producer and engineer of Kid Rock’s Double Platinum mega smash hit Devil Without a Cause) exceptionally engineered all of the tracks on Steve Scott Country’s epic new release: Those Tears I’ve Cried.
