“Massey’s notes are very crisp and well-separated. Each piece is like Mother Nature – magical in every way, a combination of originality and soulfulness; yet raw and uncategorizable. It reminds me of natures sounds and magic. Full of pleasure, peace, and harmony, this music does not seem to be made with earthly ‘purposes’ like delivering messages. Instead, it is music – it is an artist’s expression. And heck of a good job of expression, at that! The compositions and played from the heart with perfection.”
Medford, Oregon’s Steve Massey is a superb acoustic guitar picker with a crisp style, rich tone, and brilliant dexterity. His folk-influenced songs resonate and shine with the influences of places he knows and loves, from the inspiring, scenic “Highway 62” to the mighty, wind-whipped Columbia River. —
I did take the time to listen to the first song “Timberline Shadow” and I simply LOVE IT! Your playing is inspiring and soul touching. I can’t wait to listen to the entire CD!
