Steve Pawlenty (yes, he is related to the former Governor of Minnesota) and I have known each other for over 3 decades.  We worked together as bandmates in the early 1980s in The Firehouse Band in which he played drums.  Thanks to Facebook, we ran into each other again online last year (2011).  Steve still lives in St. Cloud, and he’s still making music.

Steve Pawlenty

Steve Pawlenty, former bandmate from The Firehouse Band, and extraordinary singer.

Besides playing drums, he has also become a guitarist and of course he’s still got one of the coolest voices going with an extremely wide range of styles and deliveries.

When Steve and I reconnected in 2011 I learned that he was working on a new project up in St. Cloud with a borrowed Tascam 8 track Porta-Studio of some vintage.  (It’s digital).  He discovered that he could export tracks and email them to me, I could import them into Sonar, do overdubs and mixes, and send them back to him and so on.  So we got this great idea that we should do a project of standards together along with some friends of his up there in St. Cloud.

Well, we got one song done and then for a variety of reasons on my end I just had too much going on to continue.  So, I still owe Steve a backing track for “Fly Me To The Moon”, a song I have played half a million times but don’t seem to be able to find time to get it done.  So, this project is stalled presently, but I have plans to revive it soon.

At any rate, we did get one song finished so I am putting it up on Steve’s own page.  Steve has done plenty of recording at Euphonic and played drums on the first album Euphonic Studio ever released.

Latest update…. Steve and I spoke a couple of weeks ago and he’s interested in doing vocals for our production company!  We will be sending the songs…~!

 

Here’s a song Steve did in his own studio and sent to me for mixing/mastering.  I really enjoy working with Steve’s voice.

My Redeemer Lives


 Sunny Side of the Street

This is the first song of a proposed CD of standards that Steve and I are working on via email.
