Genre - Americana Funk, a mix of Classic Rock, early R&B, Blues and Country , wrapped up in contemporary Soul Jazz for a unique new yet retro "sound".
The Blues came from poor pockets of the country, mostly in the south. Folks lived in shanties off of old dirt roads and played their music on the front porch. Oh, yes … and in
the bars and Juke Joints nearby.

This early music influences me greatly and in honor
of those days and guys gone by, I infuse my
tunes with riffs and licks from that era and
wrap them up in contemporary Soul Jazz

Cool Music

I call my music "Americana Funk", a retro salute to the early days when music was created here and not imported from Europe. This music has evolved into what we know today as Rock & Roll, R&B, Country, Jazz, Soul, Folk and Blues. I go back to those beginnings for solos and riffs and wrap it all up in contemporary Jazz for cool modern sounds with a touch of nostalgia to them. I draw on my experience as a drummer and bandleader (1958 - 1972), producer (1970 - 2000), and digital music composer and music arranger (2005 - present). I put everything I know and love into this music and sincerely hope you enjoy the groove. Poppa Steve
