“Steve Scott delivers an album that blends country with rock and blues overtones. ... [Those Tears I've Cried] is a solid and enjoyable album that highlights Scott's songwriting, solid singing, production and guitar talents” writes Paul McGee from Lonesome Highway.
Steve Scott Country is Detroit’s premiere Americana sound. Their dynamic new release, Those Tears I’ve Cried, encompasses many of the sounds that make Detroit great: driving Blues, pounding Rock and soulful Country. Steve Scott recently stated in an interview that “Radio has inspired [musically]
everything I do in my life.” Steve unabashedly writes radio ready hits that cleverly interweave classic pop/rock arrangements and rhythm sections, with traditional Bluegrass instrumentation. A sound he and his band like to call Rustbelt Country. This sound is exemplified by popular tunes like: “Hide & Seek,” “Thoughts on Fire,” “Those Tears” and “Geronimo.” Track 1, “I Think About You,” is a lively straight-up Top-40 hit waiting to happen!
Those Tears I’ve Cried, the record, is put together the way classic albums always have been: great songs from beginning to end; tunes that are varied, vibrant and belong together – a masterwork where each track guides the listener on a journey that’s complete. Steve’s creative genius is melding different styles and epochs of music that produce a fresh take on today’s country. For example, “Lorra” has a unique ‘60s kick-ass groove that even Hendrix would dig.
On the other hand, “Halo” is a brilliantly simple down-home traditional porch-swing classic. “Tequilarama” is an uplifting fun-in-the-sun; toes-in-the-sand, cowboy fantasy. The track is a creative tour-de-force that merges a full Mariachi sound with a kickback country vibe that’s topped off with a captivating pop/rock arrangement – It’s simply an awesome track!
“Tequilarama is a hit!” Al Sutton. Rustbelt Studios’ Al Sutton (famed producer and engineer of Kid Rock’s Double Platinum mega smash hit Devil Without a Cause) exceptionally engineered all of the tracks on Steve Scott Country’s epic new release: Those Tears I’ve Cried.
