From the venue:

Steve Baskin


In April 2020, Atlanta-based singer/songwriter, Steve Baskin released his fourth full-length studio recording, Mind Your Step.

Americana with Soul

The result is a soulful Americana record that references Steve’s early days of playing with Soul greats like Sam Moore, Carla Thomas and Percy Sledge. But it also features a country tone that harkens back to listening to Glenn Campbell, Johnny Cash and Charlie Pride songs on his Dad’s eight-track in the family Monte Carlo as a kid.

Recorded by GRAMMY® Award-winning producer Mark Neill in South Georgia at Mark’s Soil of the South Studio. The approach for Mind Your Step was about stripping away the technology and getting back to the basics in the studio – real musicians, real instruments and real good songs.

Early Reviews

Glide Magazine premiered the title track and said: “Shining brightly with infectious Stax-style grooves and horns, the song is a soulful anthem that feels real and direct. Baskin’s vocal balance of Americana rocker and soul singer is a perfect fit for this R&B-laced tune bursting with organ, a powerful beat and a hard-hitting chorus.” Melissa Clarke of Americana Highways advised, “Mind Your Step is a must-have for anyone who fancies swaggery music with horns.” She went on to say that with Big Wedding, Small Divorce, he “has captured a unique slice of contemporary life in a musical whirlwind of truth.”

“Steve Baskin is a smart cookie,” says Dave Franklin at Dancing About Architecture. “He knows how to take a whole bunch of musical genres, ones that already share a certain amount of musical DNA and finds the perfect way to dovetail them together so that they complement rather than clash, and the result is a great rock ’n’ soul record.”

Dan MacIntosh at Skope Magazine says that Baskin is “a smart lyricist, and there isn’t a throwaway song on this album.” And that “Baskin deserves to be better known. He’s quietly creating a strong catalogue of songs. Mind Your Step is an album that’s easy to love, from the very first listen.”

Dead Rock Star, Baskin’s third release, was called one of 2015’s early best records by Absolute Power Pop and was featured on several best of 2015 lists by power pop journalists. His second release, Naked, was nominated as best college rock albums by Just Plain Folks, a national indie music collective.

Over his musical career, Baskin has shared the stage with greats like Sam Moore (Sam & Dave), The Shirelles, Carla Thomas, Mary Wells, Percy Sledge, The Beach Boys, June Carter Cash, Don McLean, Cindy Wilson (B52s), Rob Thomas and others. And as his song states, he really did have Dinner with Lou (Reed).
