”Pop songwriting… with a drawer full of brilliant and diverse ideas… dropped from a great height for the best possible results” – Greg Harper, RawRip Editorials
Steven Martinelli: both a veteran of the local Seattle music scene and a newcomer. After almost weekly gigs at the infamous Lake Union Pub, as well as brief stints with The Scratch Quartet, and The Turn-Ons as lead guitarist, Steven took an extended hiatus from Seattle to focus exclusively on his songwriting. Fairly soon after his return to Seattle, Steven had the good fortune of reuniting with producer and engineer Mike Davidson (Jon Auer, Sky Cries Mary), and began recording tracks that would eventually become his solo debut album “Tombstone Tantrika”.
