Steve Baskin writes, records and plays a unique blend of smart, energetic pop and Americana rock and roll. He's just finished up recording and mastering for his third full-length release -- Dead Rock Star.
Steve partnered up Scott Shiflett a few years back. Their playing and vocal styles immediately synched, and the songs started popping out. Dead Rock Star represents Steve's first time collaborating with another writer, and the result is his best record yet. Absolute Power Pop says that Dead Rock Star is one of 2015's best early releases.
Dead Rock Star is also the title of Steve’s new script that he’s currently marketing to the powers that be in LA. The songs serve as a quasi-soundtrack.
Steve performs as a solo artist; with Scott as a rocking acoustic duo; and also performs as Steve Baskin and Client 9 from Outer Space, a sizzling tight four-piece group.
“Catch Me If You Can”, a pop rocker from Steve’s second release, enjoyed radio play around the US and climbed to the 10th most added song, according to FMQB. The song earned airplay in more than 50 markets around the US.
A South Georgia native, Steve began his musical career at a young age. Over the years, he’s played/toured/shared the stage with greats, Grammy Award winners and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees including Sam Moore (Sam & Dave), The Shirelles, Carla Thomas, Mary Wells, Percy Sledge, The Beach Boys, Cindy Wilson (B52s) and Rob Thomas among others.
