Steve Oliver – Global Kiss

According to his website Steve Oliver will release his new album Global Kiss March 30th, 2010. The album includes 12 tracks featuring guest-musicians like Darren Rahn and Marion Meadows on saxophone, and Tom Schuman, Alan Hewitt and Bob Baldwin on keyboards. Further musicians are Mel Brown (bass), Bonny B (drums), Larry Antonio (bass) and Humberto Vela (percussions).

For those who are interested in the making of the album Steve offers a podcast on his website. The cover of the new album was designed by Marion Meadows. Steve comments: “I’m excited about it because it gives artists the chance to be creative again. Now we can take the shackles off that we’ve been bound to in this genre, which have been a drag. It’s killed the format in a lot of ways, because everybody’s trying to do whatever just to get heard.

And the fans and the music suffered from the outcome. Now, we can be creative, and bring that element back into the music. I think that’s where it’s going. We’re going to finally see artists being artists again, instead of being controlled. I think the audience and fans are going to dig it more.”

Global Kiss is now available at CDBaby.
