Woke is Steven Keene’s Album Out Now

Already from the first notes it is evident that we are dealing with an artist with a great compositional experience behind him.

The melodic and dynamic construction of these songs is impeccable. The choice of arrangements is refined and the resulting sound product is solid and mature.

A compositional style that winks at the legendary rock and blues of the 70s.

Steven Keene is a great songwriter, the lyrics are intense and the guitar riffs and arpeggios are touching and energetic at the same time.

The sounds are real, the guitar screams with pleasure and Steven Keene’s vocal timbre is deep and fascinating and manages to speak directly to the heart and soul of the listener.

In his tunes, I heard Bob Dylan but also Pink Floyd without disdaining country vibes. A truly intriguing sound blend that I recommend everyone to go and listen to.

Woke is a magnificent album, you need to listen to it several times in order to appreciate all its nuances.
