ARTIST TO WATCH: Steve Lovell
Imagine Whitney Houston, Bilal and Luther Vandross on one song. Sounds amazing, right? Well, Steve Lovell comes pretty close.
Singer/ Songwriter Steve Lovell studied music at Berklee College of Music in Boston. In between classes, his music career took off and he shows no signs of slowing down. Lovell has opened for Dr. Maya Angelou, Savion Glover and Chrisette Michele. He also sung background for Jennifer Holiday and shared the stage with Gospel singers Donnie McClurklin, Kirk Franklin, Vickie Winans and Byron Cage at the McDonald’s Gospel Fest.
Whatever stage he graces, his shows are definitely worth attending. His stage presence is unmatched and the vocals complete the package. I had the pleasure of attending one of his performances and by the end of the night I was up dancing, heels and all. I am usually the girl sitting on the bar stool with my legs crossed to showcase my shoes but rarely get up to dance because I can’t bare the pain the shoes cause my feet after about four songs. So the fact that Lovell’s performance had me dancing says ALOT.
I think what makes an artist an Artist to Watch is the refreshing energy they bring to the music scene. Steve Lovell is no different. His voice is powerful yet beautifully intimate. Lovell is SUPER talented and original. I encourage you to follow his career! Peep one of his videos below.
