The release for sale here--'Marking Time', 2007--- is a side project by Steven Charles Cecil. John Hinshelwood of The UK home for Alt-Country, Americana and Alternative says, 'Baltimore based songwriter and keyboard player Steven Charles Cecil...has opted for a kind of rough and ready live feel....'Louisiana Memories' with it's get down and get funky groove, and precision machine gun drumming from Dion Clay, and 'Devil's Child', a fairly routine outing, enlivened by interesting guitar / sax interplay, are probably the pick of the bunch.' Background of Marking Time Release: This project 'Marking Time' came from rehearsal recordings made during a songwriting session in Nashville, TN on October 25, 2005. Nashville session drummer Dion Clay was on the date. After the initial session a few takes were chosen, and a few minor vocal overdubs were done. The songs were then mixed, mastered, and released warts and all. The only exception being the Track 'Devil's Child' which came out of a 1996 recording session at Be-Bop Studios in Rockville, MD. Steven Charles Cecil is a keyboard player with a background in the blues tradition. He has performed with blues musicians such as Bobby Parker (Black Top Records), Sherman Robertson (Atlantic Records-Code Blue), the late great Little Jimmy King (Rounder Records),Lex Grey and the Urban Pioneers (indie artist Brooklyn,NY), and Albert Storo and the Soul Hustlers (indie Artist Houston,TX).
