I wasn’t familiar with Steve Howell’s work (other than seeing print adds and occasional reviews) prior to putting together my review of this release. Well, listening to this album proved to be a complete pleasure. Steve is a talented finger picking-styled guitar player, utilizing acoustic guitars here as well as Resophonic guitars. His blues/roots influences range from Mississippi John Hurt and Blind Willie McTell to Blind Willie Johnson, Rev. Robert Wilkins, and Robert Johnson (of course.) That’s just a short list, by the way. Research about Steve’s music shows him to have quite eclectic tastes, having played many music styles professionally, but the heart and soul of Steve’s playing and singing looks to be found in acoustic blues and traditional jazz styles.

Steve has an easy-going style of singing, tending to be laid-back; he’s not a “belter”. In fact, his voice bears a very definite resemblance to that of Elvin Bishop, right down to the accent. Elvin grew up in Oklahoma, and Steve grew up in Kilgore, Texas, which is only about an hour or so west of Shreveport, Louisiana. In fact, Steve eventually ended up living in and playing music in the Shreveport area (as well as the Ark-La-Tex area) for many years. I’m sure he spent many a long night on Shreveport’s (Bossier City’s, really) Bossier Strip. ~East Side Slim
