I have been most recently introduced to a musician named Steve Grandinetti he’s not just you every other musician. With one of the albums I had the real pleasure of listening to is called “My American Heart” an amazing & out there, album Steve has a sound of jazz, and more. Every song on this album has a story, & Steve brings a sound that evolves throughout the album that is difficult to place his style in. The first song called “Til the day that I die” the song has a pop feel to it and Steve’s voice is sincere and the harp along makes the song have rhythm and is catchy and has true flare. The next song called “All the Love” draws musicality in an almost beatlistic way, the song is soft & tender and has delicate vocals and Steve brings this into this song and many others in his vast musical catalog. “The lovers” has an upbeat ring to it, and has an eclectic sound that draws you in for more, in an almost jazzy flare up tempo instrumental song that shows Steve’s musical diversity. As I listened to this really truly musical diverse and really groovy kind of feel album the song “Like a Buffalo” where Steve brought in the element of funk and in a eclectic rap of sorts, and has an almost the sound of the musical legendary group “War” but has a real story to it. “Another Night” ushers in that jazzy kind of feel to it but Steve adds his sound to it that makes it his own flavor, that has flare to all of his songs that is hard to pinpoint what kind of genre to place him in. “Love” the next track on this really good sounding album and the acoustic element arrives and slows the tempo down and allows you to really soak in the tender vocals of Steve, and who I felt Steve Grandinetti is as a musician. “Freedom” another song that has a feeling and a truly thoughtful piece of music that involves the spoken word. “My American Heart” a song that brings in acoustic guitar and really once again has the feel to who Steve is as a singer/ songwriter and brings in provoking lyrics. “Don’t Let It Bring You Down” another track that has a real 70’s feel to it and my ears kept reminiscing about the sound of Beatle music, Steve seems to have the ability to write a song that speaks to you and brings in that eclectic musicality that keeps you in the mix. “State Of Affairs” that has a sound of pop and felt like I stepped through the doors into the rock & roll nightclubs in old town New York. Once again Steve has a true message sewn within his music that one must really listen intently and really understand his depth. “Hang On” a song that maintains that 70’s vibe to it. “It’s No Use” a song that has a true emotion running through it and once again brings in Steve’s lyrical talent where he’s got a lot to say. “Let It Go” (the birthday song) a small song that has felt like a real personal song written for that someone special, and Steve’s vocals are really present on this as I felt his singer/songwriter within this song. “Those Were Different Days” a really great and enjoyable song that brings in that tender side of Steve and his amazing and thoughtful lyrics. “Shake Her Bones” brings in that jazzy feel to it and has a real nightclub feel to it. “Livin’ The High Life” has a real sound that Steve has the ability to tell a story through his gift of amazing lyrical abilities. “Scrumptious” an entertaining instrumental song that rings out of the jazz greats hall of fame in a Cole Porter without vocals, and quite good I might add. “I’d Rather Get Stoned” a quirky and interesting song not sure what to say about this one. “Lhistoire Des Tambours en Amerique” a song that is an instrumental based song that adds to the album content and allows the talent of Steve and his drum solos never the less is part of this album. “Transmission From Mars” a song that is an instrumental and once again showcases Steve’s Drumming and phasing abilities and not sure how to review this one. “Caravan Of Peace” a continuation of the previous song that showcases Steve and his drumming & phasing capabilities. All in all this album is a very good album I found myself throughout my listening experience I travelled musically back to the 70’s and enjoyed Steve’s true talent that resides in his lyrical content, Steve Grandinetti is a singer songwriter that has true honest talent that is down to Earth and when it comes to a tender musical talent Steve has this. It’s been rather difficult to place Steve into one category or genre of music, however he’s got real talent when you hear his tender side when it’s him & his guitar and his true gift of lyric.
