Love Conquers All
If you're familiar with the music of Steve Haggard, then you already know that he's a truly original artist. Steve Haggard's signature sound can be best described as 'Genuine American Roots Music', and it's a potent blend of Americana, rockin' country, some down-home blues, a little bit of folk, and a dash of rockabilly. Steve is a man of many talents: a distinctive vocalist, a great songwriter, and an excellent musician. (In addition to playing guitar and mandolin, Steve is also a virtuoso blues harmonica player.) And during the past decade or more, he has become one of the top producers around, winning acclaim for his studio work in Nashville with artists and bands not only from the USA, but from Canada, England, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Germany. The brand-new Steve Haggard release, 'Love Conquers All', showcases all of Steve's talents. The new CD features 10 of the artist's new original songs, plus two fine covers. It's an eclectic album, filled with strong performances and top-notch material. Steve's five previous Wild Oats Records CDs have all won glowing reviews from music journalists here and overseas, as well as praise from a wide spectrum of music lovers. (Edward Morris of the prestigious Nashville Scene called Steve's 'Make Your Move' CD 'one of the year's best'.) And the first reviews of 'Love Conquers All' are comin' in. The reviewer Wildy Haskell gives the album 5 stars out of a possible 5, and writes: 'Steve Haggard raises the bar a notch higher with a wonderfully warm roots album that is not to be missed.' While Jess Marich of Nashville's 'Shake! Magazine' says: 'Steve Haggard is a Nashville treasure. One of the great country/folk/blues artists, he has enjoyed a fruitful career... This album ('Love Conquers All') is another fine example of Steve's poetic, rootsy music'. Despite being on a small independent label -- Nashville's Renegade Record Label, Wild Oats Records, of course ! -- Steve Haggard has built a (growing) legion of extremely devoted fans around the world. He has done some 55 tours outside of the USA and played in 17 countries, performing everywhere from Europe to the Middle East. Steve's five previous Wild Oats Records CDs have picked up radio play in more than 20 countries, and been distributed on five continents. Like many of the finest artists, Steve Haggard has yet to receive all of the recognition he deserves... a situation that is changing all the time, however, as more and more people hear the man's music and become aware of his work.
