Back To You

"Back To You" was chosen as a top 10 readers' favorite album in July at "Americana Highways" (along with Son Volt and Rodney Crowell)  and was selected in August by, "American Roots UK" as a top pick (along with Son Volt) for the EuroAmericana charts. The album has also been chosen as a top pick of the year 2021 by Colin Fielding's "Folk n Roots" at Australia's 31NR (96.5 inner fm).

Steve's sixth album, "Back To You" is now available. His latest album can be purchased here via digital downloads or CDs. Along with Steve, the new album features, Eric "Roscoe" Ambel (guitars, vocals) Keith Christopher (bass), and Shawn Murray (drums). Back To You has 11 new songs written by Steve and highlights the roots genres that authentically flow from him; folk, rock, and country blues, all within the framework of imaginative tales and narratives. The album offers up Steve's unique, oft-times subtle comic take on politics, religion, guns, and life in general.

"What captures one's attention quickly is how the swampy guitar & melodies at the onset creep along distinctly like the best of The Blasters, Del-Lords, Los Lobos & a band that played in "From Dusk till Dawn", Tito & Tarantula." John Apice, Americana Highways
"Steve Welner's voice sounds as vulnerable as the dispossessed characters that populate his narrative songs. reinforcing the emotional pull and purpose of his writing." Andrew Frolish, Americana UK
