Listening to this Steve, I can’t help but hear some subtle similarities in the voice of another Steve. Steve Demers from Coventry, Rhode Island definitley has some Steve Earle (“Guitar Town”) vibes going on. With plenty of texture in his vocals and jangly guitar riffs set to straight forward lyrics, there’s a whole lot of rock in Demers’ country.
Taking a cue from artists like Tom Petty, Eric Church and Bruce Springsteen, “Faster Than Love,” the latest from Steve Demers, is a completely satisfying road jam. It’s available on his EP, Insider. Demers has become a road warrior since leaving his day job, traveling all over New England and throughout the country to share his music.
Let’s dig deeper in this week’s Local Catch, Steve Demers from Coventry, RI. His music, bio, fun facts, shows, and how to follow him on social media can all be found here.
