10 MP3 Songs
COUNTRY: Country Rock, COUNTRY: Country Blues
They sing passionately about smoky dancehalls, 18-wheelers, burnin'' love, and broken hearts.
On their debut CD, Straight Up, Steve Elliott & Lucie Walker charmed fans and critics with their soulful harmonies and original, high-octane Rockin'' Country Blues.
On their upcoming disc, currently in the works, fans will be treated to another great collection of heartbreakers and barn burners worth writin'' home about
Their songs and exciting Texas/Americana sound have found their way onto the big screen, with 9 of their tunes in 3 feature films (3 in Malcolm McDowell''s ''The Barber'', and 3 in the independent feature, ''Little Boy Blues'', and 3 in 2005''s ''Rapid Fire'').
Another song from the disc, Tumblin'' Down, now has its own Country Line Dance, choreographed by Michele Perron, and taught internationally (Canada, U.S., U.K. Australia).
When they first met in 1993, Steve and Lucie had a feeling they already knew each other. When they first sang together, they couldn''t get over how easy and natural it was. Both songwriters, they understood each other''s music, and found their harmonies quickly. Mostly, this just stayed in the living room.
It wasn''t until the Fall of ''99 that they decided to perform together regularly, touring Canada and opening for country star, Terri Clark.
They''ve since wowed audiences at all sorts of gigs from coffee houses to concert halls with the highly charged performances they''ve become known for.
With a fan-base growing exponentially by word-of-mouth alone, these independent artists are prime examples of grassroots success based on good old-fashioned talent, and outstanding, radio-friendly songs.
Catch this duo live... you''ll become a believer!
..."The long and short of it is just this: This CD has several smash hit possibilities -- commercial, Top 40, mainstream country radio. There''s every reason in the world for it to happen."

..."I have a different scale for measuring a record. I put it on and open the door so that people walking by (and trust me, these people come in all persuasions) can hear what''s being played in my office. In the past month, Straight Up has caused more people to stop and stick their heads in and ask, "what''s that you''re playing?" (and "where do you buy records like that?") than any record I''ve received. I attribute this to its being a straight ahead, good-time, accessible album."
