#315: Stephen Steinbrink - Arranged Waves

Released: July 2014
Genre: Folk
Label: Melodic

“I’d much rather hear a folk song about how someone is frustrated at their iPad, because although the subject is banal, the relevancy isn’t” proclaims songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Stephen Steinbrink, suggesting a wisdom that hugely belies his 25 years. A wisdom though, that has almost certainly arisen from Steinbrink spending more than half of those 25 years in a reflective sense of wanderlust; not just taking in the sights and sounds of our world and its people, but trying to work them out as well, such was his inspiration for his latest record Arranged Waves.
