Bassist extraordinaire was the quote used in one recent review and although Steve himself considers this very flattering , in many ways it is a truthful statement to make.
His fretless bass style is indeed a virtuosic soaring delight of expression and emotion drawing from his Scottish roots ...See Full Bio
“Steve Ireland, bassist extraordinaire, completely electrifies on this single called ‘Transpire’ from his latest album ‘Crazybassman’, on Steve Ireland Music and is distributed via Zimbalam. I experienced so many inner music emotions throughout this absolutely rocking piece of music. It was masterfully layered with backing beats and grooves with tones of tribal and orient sensations. It also took me through journeys of jungle movements and sounds to crashing waves on airy clear-skied beaches. On his Sei Flamboyant 6 string fretless bass, Steve plays throughout ‘Transpire’ with passion, style and such ease. He phenomenally displays his mastery of his craft with a slow tempo solo midway through, that took this music listener to peaks of mountain tops with echoes and reverb sounds from a massive bass music element. This was a “fantastic listen”~A Musicians Friend~ gives this “7 out of 7” on it’s ‘thumbs up’ single review chart.”
