On his latest album, “The Big Fix-Deluxe Edition” (released December 2017) Raleigh, N.C.-based singer-songwriter Steve Hartsoe delivers a diverse mix of rootsy songs about love, loss and languor, propelled by gritty guitars, strained vocals and groove-tight rhythms.
The deluxe edition of the original 2016 album was remixed and remastered by Kevin McNoldy (Dave Matthews, Mary Chapin Carpenter) at Cphonic Mastering and features five bonus tracks -- two of them new songs.
The album’s tracks follow a style reminiscent of bands like Son Volt, with loud, guitar-driven rockers (“Said and Done,” Salt and Wine” and “The Big Fix”), alongside more country-flavored songs (“If I Had One Song,” “This Can’t Be Right,” “Seven Miles to Wilmington”) and some modern folk as well (“Side of The Road,” “Only God Knows,” “SLO [California]”).
The common thread in the songs is a refreshing honesty. Or, as one writer sees it: "It’s been too long since we’ve heard Americana this genuine. Inspired by Tom Petty and Ryan Adams, Steve Hartsoe is full of melodic spirit and gruff guitar lines. ...” (Milk Crater).
Background
Hartsoe honed his musical skills fronting an alternative rock band in the San Francisco area in the 1980s and '90s, London Down and its later incarnation, The Raging Marys. The band released two indie albums and repeatedly toured the West Coast, opening for artists including Mudhoney, Tragically Hip and Chris Isaak.
