Here to Stay CD review - Here to Stay
From the opening notes of "Mountain Man," the first cut of Adam Steffey's "Here To Stay," the message is clear: here's some unapologetic mountain music, with a good dose of modern sensibility. The notes are clear, the lyrics defiant; Steffey is not only "Here To Stay," but here to play. Steffey is one of the finest mandolin players of his generation. He's played with Alison Kraus and Mountain Heart (among others). His currently performance gig is as »»»

The Boxcars underwent their first major personnel change in the summer of 2014 when founding member John Bowman departed to devote more time to his expanding ministry. Over the course of the band's first three releases, Bowman's vocals, fiddle and guitar work had been a major cornerstone of their immediate success. For their fourth release, the four remaining founding members are still on hand - Adam Steffey on mandolin, Ron Stewart on banjo (though he is also a fine fiddler), Keith »»»
New Primitive CD review - New Primitive
To those who follow bluegrass and country music, go to the festivals and arena shows, and pay attention to things like liner notes, Adam Steffey is a well-known quantity of long standing.

Simply put, he's among the finest mandolin players around. What you might not know »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: These Eagles keep songs alive and well – The newly reconfigured Eagles lineup, which now includes Vince Gill and Deacon Frey in place of the late Glenn Frey, hasn't changed its set much since this modified grouping's debut at Dodger Stadium in 2017. Don Henley announced from the outset, though, how the group continues to tour primarily so it can keep the Eagles' many great songs alive.... »»»
Concert Review: Lovett could not have scripted it any better – Cerritos is a fair distance from Hollywood, but Lyle Lovett, who has accumulated a long list of acting credits, sometimes seemed like he was giving a company town performance this night. Maybe it was because Paul Reiser, the "Mad About You" star, introduced Lovett with a funny bit about what some of the man's songs mean (or don't mean).... »»»
