Matt Miner Presents and O'Connor's Vault welcome California singer-songwriter Steve Seskin, Sunday, November 15 at 7pm.
Steve Seskin is one of the most successful writers in Nashville today, with a boatload of songs recorded by Tim McGraw, Neal McCoy, John Michael Montgomery, Kenny Chesney, Collin Raye, Peter Frampton, Waylon Jennings, Alabama, Mark Wills, and Peter Paul and Mary. His song "Don't Laugh At Me" was a finalist for CMA "Song of the Year" in 1999, and has spurred an entire tolerance movement, launched by the Don't Laugh at Me Project. Other Seskin hits include: "I Think About You," "Life's A Dance," "No Doubt About It," "If You've Got Love" and "Grown Men Don't Cry."
Steve is an electrifying performer. "His voice has a natural lilt that can't be learned," writes Joel Selvin in the SF Chronicle. He's "a really exceptional talent," writes Alan Lewis in the SF Bay Guardian. And "the presentation is simple, affective, and effective," writes Jim Carnes in the Sacramento Bee. Few performers can face an audience with only an acoustic guitar and hotwire its emotions. But that's what happens at Steve's concerts.
Here are a couple of quotes from his peers in the business:
"Steve Seskin leads the cutting edge of American songwriting that, in this dark period of our history, leads us back to our humanity and our light. Beyond that, he lives the message of his music as this troubador inspires his audience to laugh, cry and forget their fear of believing once again."
- Peter Yarrow of Peter Paul & Mary
"Steve Seskin is a pal, a collaborator, a helluva songwriter, and a coffee fanatic." -Craig Carothers
Kelly Bosworth is a folk Americana singer/songwriter raised on family jam sessions and classical music. Her evocative, haunting melodies and warm vocals draw audiences into her songs, which speak to universal themes of loss, longing, and love.
