Dan Stevens (from the album Runnin’ the Backroads)
Dan Stevens collects a bunch of tales, adds music, and assembles them as songs, gathers words and music together as Runnin’ the Backroads, his latest album release. Dan Stevens is a storyteller with the ability to deliver elicit anger for attacks on the environment (“Blair Mountain”) finding fault with corporations as much as the victims who stand silent, wraps lost days etching out a meager living with humor as he sits behind the wheel of a car stuck in traffic (“Crush Hour Traffic”), makes a political stand (“Hey Uncle Sam (It’s Just My Opinion”), and has a laugh at the expense of aging (“Viagra con Dios”). Runnin’ the Backroads combines pathos with playful against a backdrop of non-stop Country Folk aged in tradition that constantly bubbles underneath Dan Stevens view of the modern world.
Following a lifetime of playing in bands, Dan Stevens spends his time as a songwriter in 2017, taking the sights from a lifetime of experiences and putting them to music. From Dan’s home in Gulfport, Florida the stories of Runnin’ the Backroads chronicles the lives of others, traveling to New England to visit a sailing family from “New Bedford”, gets trapped by four walls and the abuse of power in Houston, Texas in “The Cell”, and exercises mental excursions from a bar stool with “I Drink Gin” as Dan Stevens makes “The Proposal” and sings “Another Sad Country Song”.
