This is what the press has to say about 'bleed', the new album from Steven Alvarado: 'Work overtime and pay list price if you have to! **** Four Stars' - Popsided Magazine 'Fresh...unconventional approach...great voice.' -Music Connection Magazine 'we loved his voice!' -Blink Magazine POPSIDED MAGAZINE REVIEW **** Some of you may remember Steven Alvarado's solo debut Mercy on Del-fi. It was a fine record that set his warm voice and first rate songwriting against a backdrop of AOR style pop. With his sophomore effort, bleed, he has grown considerably, not only as a songwriter and musician, but as a first rate producer as well. Songs like 'We Can Make It' and 'Now I'm Cynical' would be right at home on an early Matthew sweet record, while 'Just A Boy' sounds like Warren Zevon trying a Tom Petty song on for size. Steven's current Nashville home has rubbed off on him a bit as well, on both the wonderful 'Just A Little' and the heartfelt 'You And I.' The playing throughout is top-notch, with nice Hammond B-3, piano, trumpet and percussion fills keeping things fresh and original. When Alvarado sings, 'I got a gun and a bullet/A preacher and a pulpit,' it's like he's taking one through the heart. The crimson may run deep on bleed, but his soul and band keep it all alive. -Eno Popsided Magazine.
