Steve Hewitt: Steve Hewitt Live @ Magpie Studios EP

UK-born and based artist Steve Hewitt releases his sophomore EP in anticipation of releasing his debut LP later this year.  This EP showcases Steve's percussive guitar playing and emotionally-charged lyrics and vocal delivery, to the point you might even forget that there's no other instrumentation present - just a man, his guitar, and something important to say.  He exhibits warm, expressive vocals and energetic guitar lines accompanied by excellent use of dynamics and song form.  Some artifacts of post-production are a little distracting at times, but it's possible to get past that and enjoy a delivery that is, overall, exciting, raw, and endearing.
