A Natural Fact - Steve Strongman

2011 Maple Blues Award winner for Guitar Player of the year, Steve Strongman has a new acoustic cd, A Natural Fact, and I listened to it today. A Natural Fact has 12 original tracks written by Strongman and performed by Strongman on vocal, guitar and harmonica, Alec Fraser on standup bass, Dave King on drums, Jesse O'Brien on piano and a duet with Suzie Vinnick. This release showcases Strongmans solid vocals and clean acoustic picking style. Can't Go Back, a clever song about second thoughts also brings some extremely clean slide playing. Leaving (with Suzie Vinnick)is a country blues rocker with interesting vocal blending. Rockin' Chair Blues, one of my favorites, has some hot picking and some cool piano. Got Trouble, the standout track on the cd, is a great traditional style blues tune. Full Of You is a happy go lucky tune which could easily be the radio track from the cd. The final track on the release, Just One Thing, is accapella w/ harp. It has a spiritual overtone and is a nice wrap up of the release. I believe that this cd will be very well received.
