Steven Coon, guitarist from Southern California, submitted his twelve song instrumental CD-R, A Loss For Words. Though many of the songs are delicate acoustic guitar solo or duet pieces, many also feature a fuller arrangement with Ed Faulkner (drums), John Cox (keyboards), and Bernie Wolfe (bass). Coon also mixes it up by introducing overdriven guitar in some of the pieces to frame more exciting solos. The music is relaxing and resonates with a timeless quality, but Coon's skill with melody and harmony takes the productions beyond just beautiful mood driven acoustic tracks. "Avalon" and "Above The Clouds" are just two examples of pieces which showcase the guitarist's ability to make his instrument speak and blend with the band. Excellent work.
Steven has been playing the guitar in the Southern California area for over 20 years, in a wide variety of original and cover bands. He has always loved artists that fuse various styles and textures together to make something fresh and interesting. Steven's goals with his own music are to accomplish a similar fusion and to take the listener somewhere special.
Coon is currently assembling a live band to perform the songs on A Loss For Words locally, as well as to go back into the studio to record his next CD, "Out With The In", which should be available by year end of 2001.
