Steven C brings new life to 100 beautifully reimagined classic rock songs, all featuring his 9-foot Bosendorfer piano. The collaboration process among all the artists involved is evident throughout, as treatments include solo piano along with supporting rhythm instruments in the mix. His solo piano take of “Smoke On The Water,” with that classic guitar riff in Perfect 4th's ringing out, will take everyone back to their first hearing in 1972.
"I never thought I would re-experience that mesmerizing era through my piano playing!" shares Steven C.
SAILING, by Steven C
"Inspired during a very yacht-rock kind of afternoon spent on picturesque Bone Lake in Luck, Wisconsin, Steven set out to create the perfect soundtrack to match the day’s breezy, romantic vibe and didn’t stop until he recorded 100 songs. The collection includes instrumental versions of iconic FM radio hits by Ambrosia, Christopher Cross, Pablo Cruise, Little River Band and more, recorded and produced by Steven C with Tommy Barbarella (Prince and The New Power Generation) working on many of the backing tracks."
Additional production talent by Tony Axtell, Steve Yeager,
