Steve Smith: Track by track

See also

Your crusty chronicler is an individual who does his own thing. Still, when Examiner asked for support for their new “List” format, it was nigh impossible not to be open-minded about it. So, with the spirit of unity in mind, your rockin’ reviewer presents this series—“Track by Track” in which we review certain select CDs literally “track by track”.
This edition of the series we (ahem) examine Steve Smith’s CD Dream Wicked. For those not up on their indie artists, Steve Smith is an L.A.-based multi-instrumentalist/singer-songwriter who was raised in Iowa. His music is oft’times influenced by such artists as The Beatles, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Fleetwood Mac and even Judy Garland. On this work Smith (vocals, keyboards and percussion) is backed by a bevy of other artists including: Grammy nominated producer Larry Treadwell (guitar, bass, percussion, midi programming and keyboards), Howard Greene (drums) and Richard Hardy (saxophone).
