CD Review: Steve Forbert Goes "Over" Well With New Album
The album was recorded at the Carriage House studio in the Silver Lake’s neighborhood of Los Angeles as the songs reflect a more laid-back vibe beginning with “All I Asked Of You.” The gruffness in Forbert’s voice is most noticeable on the up-tempo songs “All I Need To Do” and “Metal Marie.” His storied songwriting shines on the pleading vocals of “Baby, I Know” and “Don’t Look Down, Pollyanna.” The album finishes with “Sugarcane Plum Fairy” as Forbert’s vocals reflect those of Tom Waits while the lyrics play out like a modern fairytale.
Steve Forbert has a jam packed tour schedule that includes a show at the Arch Street Tavern in Hartford, CT on September 15. Please visit steveforbert.com for a complete list of dates that run until the end of the year.
