Rock and Romance: @SteveGrandMusic Is Back with “Time” and “Bennie and the Jets”

STEVE GRAND, “Time” and “Bennie and the Jets”

As a preview to his upcoming album due shortly after the start of 2015, Steve Grand has released two new songs – a new original, “Time”, and a cover of a song from my early years, Elton John’s “Bennie and the Jets” – to whet your taste for more new songs.  From one of today’s most endearing, rising performers,  “Time” is a rock-tinged country song that’s all about the romance and good times, a good companion song in a lot of ways to Eli Lieb’s “Zeppelin”.  Steve’s a great storyteller, and his breezy, rooted performance hardly makes you notice a 4 minute + length.  It’s songs like these that standout because Steve really doesn’t sound quite like anyone else.  And there are more fine originals coming too!  I’m really glad Steve released “Bennie and the Jets”.  I heard it at his Toronto show in the summer and it was sabotaged by bad sound.  I really wanted to like it but couldn’t form an opinion. The enjoyable recorded version is slick enough and captures the raw essence of the Elton classic (and Elton’s a Steve Grand fan), though I think we’d have to dress up Steve in platform shoes and a bright sequined outfit for full 70’s effect 😛  Anyway, these songs are part of a great step forward for a deserving and talented singer/songwriter 🙂 You can buy “Time and “Bennie and the Jets” on iTunes.
