Steve delivered a compelling show of old hits and new songs to an incredibly enthusiastic, packed out Blue Rock audience.
"Music should be truthful and real, but it should also be healing and uplifting," Steve Forbert says. "Russian novels, film noir and Charles Bukowski are all OK by me, but as a recording artist I'm with Brian Wilson; I aspire to make music that makes people feel better."
In the past quarter-century, the Mississippi-bred, Nashville-based singer/songwriter has built a deeply personal body of work that's won him a reputation for clear-eyed insight and plainspoken eloquence. He has a Grammy nomination and has collaborated with Edie Brickell, noted upright bassist Viktor Krauss, guitarist/banjoist Bryan Sutton, renowned steel guitarist Dan Dugmore, and many other musical luminaries.
Forbert's classic "Romeo's Tune," newly rendered on his latest, Strange Names & New Sensations, along with his classic "Goin' Down to Laurel," have both been licensed for a movie called Margot at the Wedding, starring Nicole Kidman and Jack Black and slated for a fall 2007 release.
