 Steve Scott Country nominated Outstanding Country Recording Detroit Music Awards
bonavita writes
Made in Detroit: Rustbelt Country ... Americana at its Best!

Steve Scott Country's new Album Those Tears I've Cried  has been nominated for Outstanding Country Recording Detroit Music Awards 2014.
The single “I Think About You” was chosen by the Detroit Music Awards’ sponsor Opportunity Detroit to be in the running for the People’s Choice Award 2014.

 

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.

This album includes some of the best musicians in Detroit: Gia Warner (Background Vocalist) has shared the stage with the likes of Brian Adams, Steve Miller, and Martha Reeves - opening for Detroit’s own, the great, Bob Seger. Todd Glass (Drummer/Percussionist)
has performed nationwide on TV and Radio and toured live with Kid Rock. John Lang (Pedal Steel/Dobro) has been nominated for Outstanding Country Instrumentalist - Detroit Music Awards. David Mosher (Fiddle, Mando, Banjo and Vocals) winner of Outstanding Folk/Acoustic Instrumentation - Detroit Music Awards. Rob Crozier (Bassist extraordinaire) has extensive experience in studio recording, live performance, and, is a graduate of the University of Michigan with a BFA in music studies.
