Delicate Steve
Genre: Pop/Rock
Biography
Delicate Steve is the brainchild of New Jersey-based songwriter Steve Marion. Having previously recorded friends' bands, Marion realized one day that he had enough gear lying around his home studio to record an album of his own and decided to just go for it. What he developed is a sound that feels like a hybrid of Animal Collective's dense experimentations and the African-influenced pop of bands like Dirty Projectors and Vampire Weekend, playing with layers of percussion and keyboards while tying everything together with breezy, Dobro-style slide guitar. Marion released his first album of experimental pop, Wondervisions, in 2011 on David Byrne's Luaka Bop label. In 2012, Marion returned with his sophomore full-length Delicate Steve album, Positive Force. ~ Gregory Heaney, Rovi
