Steven Denmark

Steven Denmark

Steven grew up in the foothills of rural Northern California. For as long as he can remember, music was in the forefront of Steven's life. Since he was 13 years old, Steven has been playing in bands, helping other artist create their music and touring the US and Australia. Six years ago, Steven made the decision to focus on writing the songs he's always wanted to. After many failed recording attempts, multiple songs thrown out or reworked, he finally had the songs he felt represented him as an artist. In march of 2017, Steven ventured out to Nashville TN to record his first full length record which was released on November 24th 2017.

Indie-Folk

Kevin Lee Florence

From a young age, Kevin Lee Florence was always singing - first in church, and then inadvertently around the house. It wasn't until his early twenties, however, that Florence picked up the guitar and immersed himself in Neil Young, Damien Jurado, Paul Simon, and a host of other folk legends, despite being raised in an community that disparaged folk music. He found inspiration in his father's vinyl collection and an inborn penchant for writing poetry, and gradually set about turning his passion into something viable.

Given, Kevin Lee Florence's debut album, represents the cream of the crop from his personally penned songs, along with two of Florence's favorite covers: Paul Simon's "Peace Like a River" and Damien Jurado's "Ohio." These gentle nods to two of his biggest influences help flesh out the simple, nine track record. Flecked with folk influences, finger-picked guitar lines and distinctive harmonies provided by his sister Kelly Florence, Given falls somewhere between Sam Beam's hushed, vivid folk and Simon's own conversational, quirky lyrical genius. The slow-burning hope of "Could Today be the Day" falls into a groove, and contrasts with harmony fanfare and drama on album closer "Kindness." For the more traditional minded, "Shining Shining" is pure pastoral bliss, with bright piano accents and lush harmonies. Through it all, Florence's understated, warm voice carries the record, wrapping you like a warm blanket on an autumn evening.
