Nice words from Awaken Music about Naked If its textured Americana alt/pop-rock that you're into, then you'll dig Naked, by Atlanta-based, Steve Baskin. Surrounded by a stellar band, they create soundscapes that accurately articulate each song and Baskin's vocals.
Album opener, Catch Me If You Can, is overly poppy, and lends itself to all listeners. It comes across like a blend of Counting Crows and Blue October. Later track, A Day in My Shoes seductively explodes with a great, soaring lead guitar riff. The melodies aren't quite as singable, but the hooks come at you one after another.
Something Smells Fishy belongs main stage at Bonnaroo. Its jammy and catchy all the same. Clearly, these guys know their way inside a studio. Their sounds are solid, and they all complement each other song after song. April14, 2010

Steve's new album Naked is now available at CDBaby.com, iTunes, Amazon and right here. Steve has finished up work on Naked, the follow-up to his debut album I Sometimes Think. The new record continues down the path that his debut album, I Sometimes Think, began with singer/ songwriter power pop spiced with a bit of Southern fried seasoning, and he has expanded his range with new styles, sounds and themes. While I Sometimes Think largely explored emotions around love and relationships, Naked’s themes run all over the place – love; love gone bad; running; the stress of the office; the Zen of the river; runaways; prostitution; and death.
The Valdosta Daily Times says that Naked is "just some unvarnished great music". Dean Poling of the Valdosta Daily Times had nice words to say about Steve's new album, Naked. <more>
