"You're sweet, like I can't deny." These are the opening lyrics of Steve Moakler’s first full-length album, All The Faint Lights. The same words can be spoken about the music that this Pittsburgh native has been making for the past five years. Having previously released two EPs The Weight of Words (2007) and Like I Mean It (2008), Moakler has proved himself to be a master pop craftsman with anything but faint lights in his future. Listen to his music, and you too won't deny his gift for sweet melodies and moving narratives that stick in your head like happy memories. His songs have a maturity you wouldn't expect from a young twenty-something who is quickly emerging as one of the best of a new generation of pop-rock songwriters who call Nashville home. Be sure to keep an eye out for this banana-eating, curly-headed minstrel as he continues to blaze his trail across the map.
