"We ask everyone to turn off their cellphones, so you could hear a pin drop." Coming up: Watch Mramor and singer-songwriter Kara Kaufmann perform July 11 at 8 p.m.”

“Steven Frank Mramor is living proof that musicianship runs in the family, and can be timelessly handed from one generation to the next. He has been exposed to the art of performing musically all of his life. His parents He recewere singers, he played the accordion as a child, and his song “Accordion Snare Drum Band” is a fond recollection of when he and a dear friend went into a basement one day with his accordion and his friend’s snare drum to start a band. Steven gracefully paints beautiful pictures of his memories and experiences throughout life with his music and songwriting. It is not something that is elaborated or exaggerated; it is inspired by the stories that Steven has lived to create, as well as tell. Just last month (February 2014), Steven won an award for Best Folk Song with “Uncle Johnny” from the Ex-poze-ing Music Awards; an official awarding event for unsigned artists, started by Poze Productions.”

“Cleveland is a hidden gem of musicians. The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame may have put that on the musical map but there is much more to this city than what you actually see. Witch and Toad is a prime example that is nearly 30 years in the making. Steve Mramor was 30 years into his musical journey before he discovered Raven Dana and her daughter singing in a local coffee shop. Suddenly Steve found himself on a new musical path that took his music to another electrifying level. Sometimes when you least expect it, inspiration will find you and your creative juices will take you on it’s own journey. The song “Uncle Johnny” tells the stories that were told to Steve by his Grandmother and Mother had of their time during the Great Depression. With all the singer songwriters out their today, I would say Witch and Toad are at the top of their game. Their songwriting and composing is well defined and flows softly and brilliantly.”


“Hey there Steven. Great music. Excellent representation of your genre'. I'm happy to be a fan. God Bless...”

Mramor’s performance coincides with the Smithsonian’s traveling exhibition “The Way We Worked,” which honors the heritage of Crawford and Cherokee County May 11-June 23. Spanning the years 1857-1987, the exhibit chronicles the effects of American ideals of freedom and equality, industrialization, labor unrest, immigration and working conditions in the mines, on farms and assembly lines. Mramor, who was born and resides in Cleveland, OH, also will share anecdotal history of life in Franklin during the Great Depression passed down from his mother and grandmother, who lived in Franklin before moving to Cleveland. ”

“Okay, so I've been checking out your tunes. Was not expecting that Steven, I feel the same about your music. Before tonight I would have told anyone as plain as day that this was not my style of music. Though I do listen to everything with an open mind, it took me by surprise. Think I shall put you as the 3rd recommended artist on my reverb profile. Thanks again! ”
