Review excerpt from Music and Media Focus

The lovely color and aromatic fragrance of lavender can enhance and brighten any space it is placed in. And so it is with the music of Steven Cravis on his “Lavender Dreams” album. Interestingly, although some of Steven’s songs have an upbeat groove to them, I find them to be both stimulating and relaxing at the same time, with an overall “feel-good” vibe – much like the effect that the scent of lavender produces. While this particular album is not his latest release, it is one definitely worth re-visiting and shining the spotlight on again.

The opening track, entitled “Land of Make Believe,” mainly features piano, with occasional subtle accents of ambient angelic choir. A word I would use to describe this piece is “fanciful,” as it flows through various movements and melodies like an enchanted musical storybook. The next track, “Jade’s Dream,” tells a whole different story however. With elements of jazz-fusion and new age, this ensemble piece moves to a funky toe-tapping groove. Steven played all the orchestration on keyboards and samplers, including the soaring Jan Hammer-like synth solo towards the end. Following a mercurial Latin-tinged solo piano composition, is the more esoteric “Sonic Pyramids,” that would appeal to listeners who enjoy the music of artists like Kitaro and David Arkenstone. On “Tribal Secrets,” the sounds of conga’s and fretless bass propel this jazzy tune. The dreamy “Mystical Myst,” features gentle harp, piano, strings, light percussion, and flute, brought to mind the music of English recording artist Medwyn Goodall.

For me, discovering this album was like finding hidden treasure. In addition to enjoying every track, the deeper I got into the recording the more impressed I was with Steven’s keyboard skills as well as his gift for composition, arranging, and orchestration. For someone who is primarily a pianist, he as a wonderful flair for utilizing the sounds of a wide range of other instruments played on synthesizers or samplers. They are perfectly integrated into his songs and I appreciated his intuitiveness about when to bring them in and out in a composition. However, for fans of solo piano, Steven has an upcoming album that is scheduled for release in late 2015 or early 2016.
