Steven Keene – By Your Side

Born in Brooklyn New York, Steven Keene began his career by playing Folk Clubs and cafes in Greenwich Village in the early 90’s. He crisscrossed the streets of McDougal and Bleecker playing open mikes, hootenanny’s and small clubs. Still casting warmth and grace through his loving singles, ‘By Your Side’ is a ballad of the heart, meant to give the listener the sentimentality of longing and finding the road to betterment. Also, at the same time, ‘By Your Side’ is a piano-infused ballad asking an estranged lover how she could let it go and throw it all away. In either case and story, relevance is independent and its only oxygen for survival comes from the owner of that sentiment. Steven’s long decades of rock and sultry folk, delivers again and again. A classic vibe that surpasses age and genres, no matter how you cut it. A deliberate exercise of expertise, from an expert artist.
