Steven Jaymes is the “Other Piano Guy” Born in the deep south of New Zealand, Lived more places than he can remember, and always in pursuit of that magical connection generated by music. He is a Singer Songwriter of the “Old School” persuasion and a weaver of tales tall and sometimes true
A Chilled weird wonderful mix of Elton John – Sting – The Band – Billy Joe – Beatles – Ray Charles – John Legend – Bruce Springsteen – David Bowie – and what ever else we come up.
There is a lot of the philosopher in Steven Jaymes, the archetypal artist, the seeker, the seer, the bringer of the news, a man seduced by the revelations that can come from a simple chord progression, the telling of what seems, on the surface, a simple tale. Michael Smith, The Music/Drum Media Steven's whiskey-soaked voice fits very well in with the surroundings, and pretty soon that really spontaneous feel starts to show. He brings on his guitar and everything just sky-rockets. It feels a bit like taking a step back to your own heritage. Everything falls in place when Steven takes the role of a true singer-songwriter. But soon the feel changes pace once again. He asks a guy from the audience to take on the guitar, while he steps back to his piano. Then the roof really falls off! This moment is quite astonishing. The blues is not just present, it sits down in the easy chair, sipping on the drinks, and stomps it's feet. The music demands attention of every atom present in the room. "Poor, poor you, if you weren't there!" Mindy Christiernin Borås Times, Sweden
