Singer / Songwriter Session Musician Recording Engineer
Steve Baumgartner is a Colorado based singer/songwriter who writes, records and produces music in his recording studio located in the mountains west of Denver.
His first memories of music are Jethro Tull and the Beatles and he raised himself on a steady diet of catchy, hook laden songs with melody like Paul McCartney and Wings, Kansas, Styx, Boston, and Glen Campbell. He first started playing guitar at age 11 and quickly gravitated to classical guitar and then jazz in high school.
His songs are heartfelt, soulful, organic and real, and contain a message of honoring and paying attention to the truly important things in life ... real things like Love, Friends, and Nature.
Many songs honor veterans, and the themes of sacrifice, service and the struggle of fitting in.
His latest release is called "Louder than Words" and is available via iTunes, Spotify, CD Baby and many others.
"This album was a labor of love, recorded and re-recorded over a 1 1/2 year period at home through a period of intense ups and downs. It is the product of perseverance in the face of adversity and change. It is proof that if you set your sight on a goal no matter the challenges you can achieve them ... despite the obstacles and the storm swirling around you."
Ultimately it is a snapshot of my life, as all art is. I am different now than when I started this project, and I am forever changed in many ways.
Thanks to all who inspired me with words and music"
A veteran front-man for several incarnations of various bands, he is currently performing as an acoustic solo artist. He is available for session work and recording engineering.
