Steve Rivers is an upcoming recording artist & songwriter who is turning heads in the country music scene! Steve’s latest album ‘Temptations’ is establishing him as one of the most exciting new artists in country music today. Winner of the Michigan State Final in the 2013 Texaco Country Showdown and recently nominated for ‘Rising Star’ by the Country Music Association of Ontario, Steve Rivers is an entertainer sure to watch out for!
Steve Rivers performs regularly between the USA and Canada and his live show is one of high energy and excitement - a reputation that has led him to open for national acts such as Gregg Allman, Josh Thompson and Charlie Worsham. As a performer he gives his audience 110% and as Steve says “My band and I try to make every part of our show fun and audience engaging! I want my audience to feel like they’re apart of the show as much as we are.”
His influences – country, rock, Americana, and blues – give Steve’s music a fresh and exciting sound that country music fans are gravitating to! His sophomore album ‘Temptations’ is the result of those influences. Recorded in Nashville and co-produced by Jimmy Dulin (I Pray For You – Jaron and the Long Road to Love), the album features 10 songs about the temptations of love, alcohol, and pushing the limits of being young & wild.
Steve, like many other artists before him, made the move to Nashville TN where he writes with some of country music’s biggest hit-makers, performs, and records. As a songwriter himself Steve Rivers has had 14 independent cuts including Drew Gregory’s chart hitting “Truck. Beer. Girl”, “Saturday Night” by US pop duo Dakota & Will, "Watered Down Love" by US country artist Colby Dee, and “Kill You With Kindness” by US country artist Alyssa Bagley.
Steve Rivers is currently working on his new album (due out Spring 2015) and his latest singles “Mess It Up” & “Uncomplicated” are being played on over 30 radio stations across Canada and parts of the USA.
