In closing, I am having a lot of fun performing these songs and trust you enjoy the album.
For a bit of fun, one night Steve was with some mates and realized they were all playing with their phones on social media sites – hence came the song, social network freak. A tongue in cheek song about the overuse of social media sites and is set to give you a few good laughs. You should check this out on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kypKm-G_9bU.
Accomplished singer/songwriter/guitarist, Steve Sparrow does not let anything stop his success. Born totally blind, he overcame adversity with his original brand of music and has been entertaining audiences professionally for many years.
His latest album “Paint Your Cactus Green” captures Steve’s work at it’s best, showcasing his superb vocal and instrumental ability and strong song writing style. The album is currently receiving national air play across the country, and this release has been reviewed very favourably through Capital News magazine and other country publications. The title track “Paint Your Cactus Green” and the song, “Just Can’t Sleep” have both charted in the Australian Country Chart.
Steve Sparrow’s professional career started in the mid 90’s as a duo with his Sister. (The Sparrows) They released an album through country music label, Selection Records, and performed extensively throughout Queensland and New South Wales including Tamworth and The Gympie Muster. They also toured New Zealand, Switzerland, U.K. and The Solomon Islands. Their work received considerable air play nationwide.
More recently Steve has followed a solo career, but often teaming up with other musicians for duo or group performances.
His particular forte is his great love, and feel, for Acoustic Music. His unique vocal style, and skill on the Acoustic guitar, combined with the use of a stomp box, and a little harmonica at times, ensures ‘Ear-catching’ performances. Apart from his original material his repertoire includes contemporary and classic rock, mixed with Blues, Country, and some comedy material. His performances are very memorable, and enjoyed by all.
Steve is also a recognised and accomplished record producer, having started his own recording studio – SPARROW SOUND STUDIO in 2000. He has recorded a range of artists in the country scene. Steve continues to enjoy notoriety for his album productions. The album “Paint Your Cactus Green” was produced by Steve at Sparrow Sound Studio.
