ABOUT STEVE BASKIN
Absolute Power Pop says that Steve Baskin’s third full-length record, Dead Rock Star, is his best yet and dubbed it one of 2015’s early best. Pop Geek Heaven included Single Thing About You (Chinchilla) in their Best of 2015 compilation. International Pop Overthrow included the record on its Best of 2015 list.
Steve spent last Summer and Fall in the studio recording his fourth record with GRAMMY Award-winning producer, Mark Neill. Mind Your Step will be out in the world in Summer 2019.
Steve's sophomore effort, Naked, was nominated for Best College Rock Album 2017. Lie, from that album was nominated for Best Rock Ballad, and I Think I Love You was nominated for Best Cover Song.
Steve, an Atlanta-based singer/songwriter, has been writing and recording a unique blend of smart, energetic power pop and Americana rock and roll since his debut record more than a decade ago.
He started with the rock and the roll at a young age. Steve has played/toured/shared the stage with greats, Grammy Award winners and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees including Sam Moore (Sam & Dave), The Shirelles, Carla Thomas, Mary Wells, Percy Sledge, The Beach Boys, Cindy Wilson (B52s) and Rob Thomas among others.
