“You’ve got good songs.  I mean really good songs.  That’s why all those people came out.” –

Billy Joe Shaver – CMA Songwriter Hall of Fame

 

"I think you've got a radio hit there!" - John Conquest, 3rd Coast Music Re: Nothin' On The Radio

 

",, a very unique artist with a unique musical approach.. " "a fascinating way to discover sounds of American music .. "  "..such a musical approach is really essential..."
Mike Pennard, ISA Radio, France

"...evil blues harp tone and fabulously original songs and vocal delivery."  -  Big Western Flavor

"" 'The Journey' is an elegant collection of pure atmospheric moments, which from the spontaneously opening rocker, "Money & Fun", until the final piece, The Animals traditional "House of The Rising Sun" in a completely different form, has you hooked. When Power somewhere halfway through picks up the harmonica in the superb roadhouse rocker "Running For The Border", the clouds before the moon disappear and slowly it becomes apparent that "The Journey" is so good that it is totally a treasured possession."  -                                                                                                                  Rootstime, Belgium

I'm really impressed with this album. Not only, as I mentioned at the beginning of this review, is Steve an excellent songwriter (I particularly liked the tongue-in-cheek style of some of the lyrics) but he can also turn his hand vocally to any type of music from Rock to Blues to Gospel to Ballads ~ and he manages the transition between these different genres with the greatest of ease too! As an example of Americana/Alt-Country/Roots music, this CD is highly recommended…" - AmericanaOK

 

"Steve has  given us  an excellent album full of music reminiscent of the glory days of  the  Byrds, the Burritos, and the early Eagles - yet grounded in sounds that purists and Buddy Holly fans could easily identify  with...." - Alan Rockman, L.A. music columnist.

 

"... Power's colourful life oozes from all the songs, where his Tom Russell type delivery meets Willie Nelson with a touch Waylon.
It's all good stuff.... he manages to combine straight ahead rock with some excellent ballads." - Americana UK
 

 

"Most Danceable:  Of hundreds of versions, Power’s rendition is one of my short-list favorites; as Melissa Swingle of the Moaners put it, it’s utterly inappropriate for the subject matter and, at the same time, absolutely perfect.  The recorded version, with Ian Lawrence on the pedal steel guitar and banjo, is unlike any other. With this song, that’s saying a lot. I’ve danced with my wife to it. It somehow manages to tell a sad story and leave you happy. " 

From "Chasing the Rising Sun" , a history of "House of the Rising Sun"  by Ted Anthony, Associated Press national writer and editor

 

 

“Last night I reviewed the entire album from first note to last and find (Steve’s) songwriting skills & style on equal with all the greats.”
