The songs of Steve Spurgin run from intensely reflective to quirky to downright funny, and when on stage Steve sends them your way with an engaging style that is immediate and stunning. His list of credits is extensive, earned from years of travel and performing. A former Nashville staff writer for Gene Watson and Reba McEntire, Steve has major country market hits under his belt, as well as a BMI writer's award. He also has been awarded three times by the IBMA while he was performing with the legendary bluegrass group California. For fans of the world famous Kerrville Folk Festival, you might also recognize him as a former "New Folk" winner. He has performed at major festivals over a large part of the U.S. as well as Europe, Canada and the South Pacific, and his CDs are aired from Australia to Sweden to Guam. You could also hear him coming from your car speakers if you happen to pass through someplace like Goldfield, Nevada.
As a fourth generation son of the state of Texas, and coming from a long line of hard working farm folks, teachers and preachers, Steve has an unquestioned love of the land and the people who work it, from farmers to cowboys to just plain folks. He understands simple truths and real people... and his songs reflect that. You will hear stories of family, feuds, kindness, his love of the West, the woes of a traveling minstrel, lost love, found love and gunfighters. Being of strong Scots/Irish descent, he may also throw in something that would be right at home at an Irish music festival. Steve's songs have been recorded and performed by an impressive list of artists, such as Red Steagall, Gene Watson, Doyle Lawson, California, Jean Prescott, The Irish Descendants, The New Dubliners, Horse Crazy, Bluegrass Etc., Josh Williams and many more. Bottom line, Steve Spurgin is a weaver of tales — and he writes and performs them in a manner that grabs you and won't let go. Small wonder that Dave Higgs of NPR Nashville said that Steve's face should be on a postage stamp. www.spurginmusic.com
