Steve Forbert's lengthy discography has established him as an American icon. His music was pure Americana before that genre was recognized. The road and the changing landscape are anintegral part of the hard-working Forbert's life and songwriting. He was a truck driver before releasing his first album and says there's "romance" involved when he gets in the car after each show and drives to the next gig in another city.
Fourteen albums on, Forbert's stamp on American music is akin to the legendary footprints of Warren Zevon, Gene Clark, Gram Parsons and other top American songwriters, and he has often been compared to the likes of Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, and Bruce Springsteen. Now, 34 years after his first album, Steve Forbert is releasing an exciting new one, Over With You. Its ten fresh but mature songs pinpoint a wide range of emotions that color personal relationships -- emotions that most listeners have undoubtedly felt and struggled to understand at some point in their lives. "This is an album that has taken a lifetime to make," explains Forbert. "You don't just pull these songs out of thin air -- you have to live them."
Tickets: $25 adult, $22 senior
