AMERICANA FUNK: A mix of Classic Rock, Early R&B, Blues and Country riffs and licks wrapped up in contemporary Soul Jazz offering a unique new yet retro familiarity that appeals to young and old alike.
NOTES
After ten years of digital music composition and production, and foraging through Classic Rock, Early R&B, Blues and Country music I was familiar with from my years as a drummer and bandleader, I evolved into what I call Americana Funk which is a combination of riffs and licks from those old tunes that I wrap up in Contemporary Soul Jazz. The result is unique with a touch of a retro yet familiar “sound”.

This genre is prevalent in my last two albums, Raw (‘30s & ‘40s inspired) and Medium Rare (‘50s & ‘60s inspired), and both led to Well Done which was inspired by today’s music trends.
Enjoy the groove.

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
