Slide On Over Here by Steve Azar on Apple Music

EDITORS’ NOTES

Steve Azar’s fourth studio album opens with the warmth and familiarity of a favorite classic rock song you might’ve heard flow from the speakers of your parents’ car. “I’ll Find Me” sets the mood with the summery tones of a vintage Les Paul burning through an old tube amp, a lazy-sounding slide guitar, and a grinding organ, all coming together under Azar’s earnest voice as he muses wistfully about trying to find his identity after losing someone who was a big part of him. “Sunshine” follows with a similar mood, but the lyrics shift gears to sing of a newfound love with simple poetry and breezy acoustic guitar picking that recalls Tom Petty’s “Angel Song” from the 1996 soundtrack to She’s the One. “Hard Road” is another standout ballad carried by the rootsy twang resonating off a Dobro guitar, sparse pedal-steel notes, and road-trip-themed words that serve as a metaphor for the complexity of relationships. Things pick up on “Moo La Moo,” a honky-tonkin’ recession rocker where Azar croons a funny hook in the chorus refrain, “There’s too much month at the end of the money.”

About Steve Azar

A product of the Mississippi Delta region, Steve Azar was born April 11, 1964. After moving to Nashville to pursue a career in music, he released his debut album, Heartbreak Town, in 1996. The single "Someday" was a moderate hit on the country charts, and Azar returned in 2001 with the Top Ten country smash "I Don't Have to Be Me ('Til Monday)." It crossed over to the pop Top 40 in April 2002, and made the album Waitin' on Joe a heatseeker hit as well. Azar has since released two albums on independent labels: 2007’s Indianola on Dang/Ride and 2009’s Slide on Over Here on Ride Records. ~ Jason Ankeny
