All Secrets Fade
Steeped in vibe and atmosphere, singer/writer Steve Lee paints a melodic landscape on his first full-length release All Secrets Fade. Leading a band of downtown New York's finest musicians Steve's songs instantly envelop you like a favorite leather jacket. Feel the nostalgia of As Time Goes By, breathe the obsessive edginess of Come To Me, and walk the wasteland of American Gothic. With subtly addictive melodies and layered vintage and exotic instruments Lee's recordings spool out like a late night drive down an empty stretch of highway and haunt like the images just beyond the headlights reach. Combining Steve's keen insights into the human condition with exceptional backing from producer/bassist John Abbey, drummer Phil Cimino, percussionist Jagoda, and guitarists Jimmy Lee and Lance Doss (as well as special guests) establishes a solid foundation for further musical explorations. 'Each song had a core essence and we worked extremely hard to sonically arrange every part to support the vibe. Every song is a canvas; the lyric is the study and the instruments the paints and brushes.' After 1990's EP Blood On Blood Steve hit the road for hundreds of live shows to hone his songwriting and develop his unique performance style: part tent revival and part social consciousness lesson the live shows are 100% intense. Definitely see him when he hits your corner of the world you'll laugh, you'll cry, and you'll leave feeling renewed!
