Steve Hewitt is an acoustic guitar playing singer/songwriter from Kent and today I’ll be reviewing some selected tracks from his upcoming album ‘Bigger than Words’ which is due out later this year, and make sure and keep an eye out for it when it drops.
‘Healing & Hurt’ has a nice melodious intro, light guitar strings that manage to be both melancholic and hopeful in equal measure. This track was my first exposure to Steve Hewitt and I already know I’m going to like his music. That’s especially true once he stars singing, he has a strong voice, and he knows how to use it. If I leave you with any overwhelming opinion throughout this review make sure its this “Get this track…you won’t regret it”.
‘Move On’ starts with a faster intro than the previous track, but its still jam packed with this bittersweet energy that’s both appealing to the listener as much as it resonates with every loss and recovery they’ve faced in life. ‘Move On’ should really be your anthem for getting back up and celebrating the good times and what you’ve still got.
‘Holding Me Back’ is another experience, I’ve listened to a lot of music over the past two years or so while doing these reviews, and I’ve heard a lot of bands/musicians can can evoke a reaction but what’s a lot harder is to really tell a story with your music, Steve Hewitt manages to do both. Of the three tracks I got to review today I think this one has the best vocal sections, but each has managed to do something different and impress me in a different way.
And that’s what I thought of these teaser tracks from the talented Steve Hewitt, and if you want to check them out for yourself then visit bandcamp. And if you want to keep up to date with Steve Hewitt then follow him on Facebook and Twitter.
