Once again Steve Spurgin has put together a collection of songs that reinforces his enduring international legacy as a singer, songwriter and performer of serious note.
In “Folk Remedies”, Steve takes us back to his roots as a folk musician and proves that he has earned that title as part of this lengthy bio.
These compelling tracks, then of which are Spurgin originals, will appeal to any acoustic roots fan who enjoys songs that are thoughtful, expressive, well-written and well-performed.
Steve Spurgin says in his liner notes on Folk Remedies that '...this music is where his heart is and he's never been more comfortable...it's like coming home.' There is probably nothing more obvious. I knew that three songs into the CD and long before I read the lines. Folk Remedies is certainly some of Steve's best work and a great gift to the entire acoustic folk world.” - Brian McNeal, Prescription Bluegrass
Steve has performed over much of the world both solo and as a member of various bands of renown such as the multi-award winning band “California” (with Byron Berline, Dan Crary, John Hickman and John Moore), “The Limeliters”, “Sawmill Road” and “Sundance”.
He also has received multiple awards from IBMA and BMI, and as a “New Folk Winner” at the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival. His background includes several years as a Nashville staff writer for the Welk Music Group, which resulted in hit records for Gene Watson in the country music market and numerous cuts by a variety of roots oriented artists such as Red Steagall, Josh Williams, The Irish Descendants and Doyle Lawson
