Grammy Nominee Steve Forbert Returns, stakes his claim as a Great American Songwriter. New studio album Over With You, focuses on matters of the heart. Over With You, Steve Forbert’s first studio album in three years, is a focused song cycle featuring an earnest account of the often-mixed emotions involved in personal relationships. The ten new compositions combine the plainspoken honesty and insightful contemplations into this topic that perhaps only a man from Mississippi, the home state of both Jimmie Rodgers and Tennessee Williams, could provide. And these songs make the case that Forbert should be considered in the first rank of American songwriters. Produced by Grammy Award-winner Chris Goldsmith (who has worked with Ben Harper, the Blind Boys of Alabama, Big Head Todd and the Monsters, Ruthie Foster and Charlie Musselwhite), Over With You was released Sept. 11, 2012 on Blue Corn Music. From the first song, All I Asked of You, with its “sore-tailed cat” and its “one-armed man,” Over With You takes the lyrical brilliance of Forbert, practiced in capturing the essence of human interactions, and pairs it with a cast of accomplished young musicians who add a layer of supple, empathetic support. The result is a rich musical landscape where the emotional depth of the lyrics, and the affinity of the musicians supporting them, is palpable. “This album is very personal,” Forbert says. “The songs are about what people feel in deep relationships — mainly love and friction. Forbert says he wanted the new album — recorded at the cozy Carriage House studio in Los Angeles’ Silver Lake neighborhood — to be musically sparse. There is no bass on some tracks, for example, creating a haunting vibe on the songs and leaving the spotlight firmly on the lyrics. “I’m not Lady Gaga,” he says. “I went for a much more minimal thing. It’s all about the songs.”
