Double dose of Steve for California

Steve Morse and Dave LaRue, © 2009 Nick Soveiko CC-BY-NC-SA

Steve Morse has six dates lined up in California in January with his band. He will support himself, with the public debut of the Angelfire project — a collaboration with young vocalist Sarah Spencer. Back in 2008 they recorded an album, which apparently is finally coming out in early 2010. The album will be available for a special preview purchase at those concerts. Dave LaRue and Van Romaine provided the rhythm section in the studio, whereas the live lineup will be rounded out by Bill Evans on keyboards and Ron Spencer on bass..

Preview Angelfire’s music at angelfiremusic.com.

Update (Jan 4): Angelfire will appear only on January 14th, 15th and 16th dates, not on all six as we reported earlier.

Thanks to Daniel Bengtsson for the info.

    Done the trip south at the Stagecoach before and once was enough for me, but I’m glad he’s doing the west. He would’t even think of coming past San Fran on any tour, so at least Cal gets to catch him.

    Will Steve come somewhere in Europe with his band? I mean, he’s one of the best, and one of the very few guitar heroes that still have something to say… Steve, please, Europe!

    I look forward the Steve/Sarah CD. Steve was in Europe- at the Guinness Guitar Record in Wroclaw on 1st May 2009 🙂 But yes, I’d like to see him live with La Rue and Van Romaine.

    Saw The Trio at The Stone Pony in Asbury Park, New Jersey a number of weeks ago. Nah, Bruce wasn’t present. And that’s a good thang. As per usual, jaws on the floor abounded. Will be visiting some friend’s and family in just about 2 weeks out west. Sarah Spencer and He Who Is Too Good an added and ridiculously brilliant bonus….

    It just doesn’t get any better…

    Va Voom!

    Hi guys, I hope y’all come early to the SMB shows and catch Angelfire. It’s a unique style for Steve (who already such a diverse artist). Almost the whole album will be performed!

    The format of working with a girl in an acoustic vein seems to become a trend.

    Like we had before with all those Gothic or something people going out with a classical trained female vocalist.

    Avoiding the comparison with Plant and Kraus because Steve is not a vocalist.
    So it almost seems he s doing a Blackmores Night kinda thingy….

    Just arrived back East Coast from the gig last night. Interesting to seee the youthful Sarah Spencer with the musical guidance of He Who Is Too Good. And then The Trio brought the house down the balance of the night.

    The Man’s a genius….

    BIG TIME….
