iTunes Review

With Watching Time Run Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania singer-songwriter Steve Moakler dodges any semblance of a sophomore slump by opening strong on “Waiting,” a triumphantly uplifting song that flirts with Britpop’s shimmering guitars and anthemic choruses. Moakler’s breathy voice recalls a young Josh Rouse at times, especially in the verses of the following tune “Today” where he sings a matured sentiment over more roots-y instruments like banjo and piano. A grinding old Hammond B-3 organ is added in on “Best Thing,” a track where those old classic tones are nicely contrasted with an infectiously danceable beat. Fans of this tune’s noticeable groove are sure to also like “Can’t Stop Thinking About You” — a bouncy ditty that recalls some of Paul Simon’s groovier solo moments in the early ‘70s. “Why We Said Goodbye” is a standout cut wherein Moakler nicely contrasts lonely lyrics with spirited, elevating melodies. He toes the Nashville line on “Play You Down,” a catchy and twangy song that could easily crossover onto the Country charts.

This Is What Happens When Fact Meets Fiction

Steve Moakler is the guy who writes all of the words you wish you could say. His songs are exactly who he says he is. Steve is what happens when lyrical genius meets a melodious sonnet at 120 BPM and you start rocking out in your car for no apparent reason. This record is why your iPod has a rewind button. Every song on this record has a story, a purpose, and a personality. If you're in love you will love this record, and if you're not in love you'll be scouring the city by the end of this record just looking for someone beautiful to share these songs with. Steve Moakler is a name you need to remember, because by this time next year you'll be sipping your coffee while he's serenading you through your TV on Good Morning America and The Ellen Show, simultaneously.

Real music, real talent

This is awesome! Great music from one of the most talented musicians I've ever heard.

Stellar album

I've been anxiously awaiting Steve Moakler's new album ever since I discovered "All the Faint Lights" a year ago...and let me tell you, he did not disappoint with "Watching Time Run" (I may or may not have listened to the album in its entirety 6 or 7 times in a row last night during a monster study session).

Great album, I love some of the subtle nuances Steve's added to his sound and the lyrics are brilliant as always. If I had to pick a favorite, I would name track 2: Today. But let's be honest, picking a favorite on this album is a bit like trying to pick a favorite vital organ--on their own they're cool but together they are life-giving.
