Straight off the mark from new single ‘Old Friend’, Steve J. Allen is back with impressive new album ‘Contrast’. A sentimental album that evolved from angry energy into a wider range of stylistic features and emotions, the album hears different sides to Steve’s songwriting.
A rather personal song about the loss of an early friend (For Joe), a psychedelic ballad (Other World) and even a couple of experimental numbers (The Anchor, Mystery Interlude II) are portrayed on the album.
Speaking about the release Steve shares, “To me, this album is organic, imperfect and open to suggestion. I enjoy it, and that’s all I really care about.“
A consistently upbeat offering that may come across as short but certainly sweet, the album gives insight into some of Steve’s most significant experiences, life episodes and human connections.
