Telling Stories

Steve is a big fan of Tracy Chapman and enjoyed the chance to work with her on two albums, 'Telling Stories' and 'Let It Rain' as well as a number of tours.

It gave him a chance to use instruments that he would not normally be asked to play, like Dulcimer, Lap Steel and Barritone Guitar. Not to mention being able to work on the wonderfully gentle and enigmatic songs written by Tracy.​​
