When Mississippi songwriter and former truck driver Steve Forbert first came on the scene in the late 1970s he was hailed as a new Southern Bob Dylan. He's shown the same kind of career longevity, but there's a warmth and innocence in his love songs that's all his own. Live and solo he's a magical presence, drawing an audience into his highly original and observant music without ever raising the volume of his distinctive rasp above conversation level. Steve has been incredibly prolific over the years, and each of his albums and shows is different. He's coming to Michigan with a new album, "Over with You,"—a focused song cycle featuring an earnest account of the mixed emotions involved in personal relationships. These new compositions have a plainspoken way with this topic that perhaps only a man from Mississippi, the home state of both Jimmie Rodgers and Tennessee Williams, could provide.
