Tears & Promises
Having spent years on the Hollywood club scene in various bands, Stephen Barker now steps forth with a solo effort which highlights his songwriting and story telling. Backed up by some of the finest musicans around, from the mississi delta, this is indeed an album that goes in many musicial directions at once. The music is not type cast into any musical style, as the music style changes from song to song. Stephen is more interested in telling a story, to letting the listerner feel the heartache or joy or pain, and getting those feeling out than just staying to one style of music. This is one album that will not grow old, nor will the listerner get tired of the music.
