Steve Piper's songs are filled with the kind of longing you get when you are alone, but warm and dry on
a rainy night - little circles of light in a dark and stormy world. I hear flashes of Buddy Holly and the Everly Brothers peering in from the darkness. I am nostalgic for Steve's past and want to join him, through his songs, as he slouches off towards Kansas City, searching for the truth. - Pat Maloney (patmaloneymusic.com)

 

(Sad Song) is a beautiful song. I love your voice. - Jimmie Dale Gilmore (jimmiedalegilmore.com)

 

The cd (Home) is rich and beautiful. - John Dady (dadybrothers.com)

 

Has filled Kid with lilting balads and crisply played accoustic instruments. Light Will Shine is one of the albums simple treasures which gently sends young people off to war to die in vain. - Jeff Spevak (Democrat and Chronicle; Rochester, NY)

 

Steve PIper has a real genius for constructing chord changes. And for exposing pleasant delicacies in whatever instrument he is holding. Sneaky, precise, deceptively flowing, bittersweet, all with a skill that belies that difficulty within. These chords beside each other remind me of the Beatle's White Album...The instrumentals are remarkable. - Ken Hardley
