Steve Sainas - simple as this - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, simple as this, from Steve Sainas and it's calming. Opening with title track, Simple as This, Sainas accompanies his own vocals on acoustic guitar. Simple and clean. With a more deliberate rock feel, Sainas is joined by Kelly Stodola on drums and Chad Matthews on bass for solid track, Why Do We Fall. I really like this track with it's warm melody and reassuring bottom. Another of my favorites on the release is Your Light Will Shine On, with solid vocals, a nice melody and strong rhythm. My Darkest Days Are Gone presents my favorite vocals on the release supported by a warm melody and clean acoustic backing. Wrapping the release is springy, Everything's Gonna Be Alright, with it's comforting lyrics and cool melody. This is a sure departure from Sainas' blues band, Mud Dog but a solid solo effort.

Train - Mud Dog

Steve "Mud Dog" Sainas has been a guitarist/singer/songwriter in Vancouver's cabarets and pubs for the past twenty years. During this time, he has developed a powerful blues guitar and singing style that is instantly recognized by his steadily growing audience. In 1997, Steve began to lay the ground-work for forming his powerful blues band Mud Dog. His vision was to pay tribute to blues masters such as Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf and John Lee Hooker with a fiery contemporary blues sound. The highlight of each concert, however, is when Steve testifies his own life experiences through his original songs, inspired by the sounds of the Mississippi Delta. Mud Dog released its debut CD "Devil's Ride" on March 7th, 2003 at the Terry Fox Theatre to a house full of excited fans. "Devil's Ride" features eleven originals songs written & produced by Sainas and two traditional arrangements. The CD has been featured on both Storman Norman's Sunday Blues on Rock 101 and CBC Radio and is receiving regular airplay coast to coast. In March 2008, Mud Dog released their second CD, “River of my Soul,” that features eleven new original acoustic songs written and produced by Sainas. These songs deeply reflect on finding the light in a world consumed by darkness. During the day, Steve is busy teaching Rock School and Recording Arts at Terry Fox Secondary School in Port Coquitlam, BC. He established these programs in 2000/2001 and has developed them into one of the most successful music programs in public education.
