Howell, Steve, Since I Saw You Last
Singer/guitarist Steve Howell has been honing his craft for well over forty years as one of the finest interpreters of the American roots music songbook, and his dedication to and deep understanding of the music becomes more evident with each release. Since I Last Saw You is the latest and best testament yet of his exceptional talent. Since I Saw You Last presents Howell in his most eclectic mood with 12 tracks that include country blues, rockabilly, folk and R&B with a mostly acoustic bent. His first two CD's, the appropriately-titled Out of the Past in 2006, featuring country blues and traditional prewar jazz, followed by the equally evocative My Mind Gets to Ramblin' in 2008 containing even more lowdown country blues classics, were warmly received by the music press and radio. Both records were hailed in this country and abroad for their authenticity, easygoing expressiveness and instrumental excellence.
