Sunday Spotlight with Steven Padilla
The Bluebird Cafe
Sun, Sep 15 6:00 pm
It has been said that the true path to happiness is to follow your heart. And in the case of Steven Padilla, his heart lead him to Nashville where he immersed himself amongst the creative and songwriting community and while honing his craft, he settled in on a sound that is both reverent of the past and serving as a guidepost of where country music’s future can be. Both vintage and modern in approach and just downright cool. It is that dual dichotomy that brought what has become his forthcoming album Hank and Jesus into the world. Co-produced with Leroy Powell and Misa Arriaga, the album features eleven songs which run the gamut of the human condition; from Saturday night revery to Sunday morning confessionals and everything in between. Take “Me Before You,” a song about finding redemption thanks to the strong love of a woman.
