Recently released is the debut, instrumental EP from guitarist Stevie C.Bowen, a slide guitar (and non-slide) player originally from southeastern Virginia, but now based in Brooklyn, NY.
Stevie has released a few records over the years, with bands The House Floor and most recently with A Valley Son. Throughout that time he has learnt a lot and grown into his own as an artist and guitarist, and felt it was time to get something that really represented himself out into the world. He spent the last year pouring his heart and soul into this EP, with whatever free time he could muster between working two jobs and trying to stay afloat in New York City. He's incredibly proud of the result and says the songs are emotive and engaging, ranging from swampy blues and classic soul to cinematic soundscapes.

Marty's review: Stevie's debut EP is an impressive 6 track collection of all instrumental compositions that showcase his masterful guitar talents and covers several genres of roots music from blues, folk, soul and some progressive sounding tunes that would fit in well as a soundtrack to an independent movie. The hard work that Stevie has put in to this release is certainly evident and I urge roots music aficionados to check this one out, it won't disappoint.
