About Steve Forbert:


Steve Forberts latest album, Compromised, will be released November 6, 2015, and

from the comparative essay of the discs title song, Compromised (complete with

catchy chorus and signature harmonica solo), to the exasperated advice for everyman

on the album closer, Whatever, Man, Steve Forbert leaves no stone unturned in his

exploration of life, love, turmoil, and survival.

 

After years with local bands, Steve Forbert left his hometown of Meridian, Mississippi in

his early 20s and headed for the Big Apple in search of recording deals and larger

audiences. He started out playing for change at Grand Central Station and hitting every

open mic night he could before eventually moving into the club scene at infamous spots

like New York Citys CBGBs. At a time when rootsy rock was fading in favor of punk-
edged bands such as the Ramones, Talking Heads, and Blondie, Forberts folk-pop

Romeos Tune hit #11 on the charts and brought him into the international spotlight.

Critics and the public embraced his melodic and lyrical styles, a more traditional sound

among the post-disco punk and rock of the late 70s and early 80s. Always following his

own instincts, Forbert says, Ive never been interested in changing what I do to fit

popular style and needs.

 

And thats the motto he has lived by since the release of his debut album, Alive on

Arrival, in 1978. Rolling Stone contributing editor David Wild recently wrote that now

or then, you would have been hard-pressed to find a debut effort that was simultaneously

as fresh and accomplished as Alive on Arrival. It was like a great novel by a young

author who somehow managed to split the difference between Mark Twain and J. D.

Salinger.
