JANUARY 28, 2011 - In my interview with multi-instrumentalist and singer songwriter STEVE STEELE, he expressed concern over the fact that no one had asked him about the meaning behind the title of his latest CD THE EXPAT. The title is short for the word 'expatriate'. STEELE's latest album explores the notion of being a stranger in a strange land. In STEELE's case, the strange land is his hometown of Houston. While the young singer songewriter is of the mindset that he's got to get out of this place, his surroundings have also provided a great deal of the inspiration behind his music. Taking his queue from DAVID BOWIE'sclassic albums LOW and HEROES, STEELE has created an ambient rock sound that is epic in scope and sonically mesmerizing.

ABOUT THE HOST:
BRIAN LUSH holds a BA in Creative Writing from the UNIVERSITY OF NEW MEXICO. He established ROCKWIRED on New Years of 2004 and hasn’t looked back since. He is currently the host of all of ROCKWIRED.COM's programming which includes such shows as ROCKWIRED RADIO PROFILES and ROCKWIRED FREE FORM RADIO. As program producer for ROCKWiRED.COM, LUSH is hands-on when it comes to interviewing and building a lasting rapport with the artists that come ROCKWiRED’s way. As a youngster, BRIAN LUSH had no idea what kind of seed was being planted by reading magazines such as HIT PARADE, HIGH TIMES, SPIN, REQUEST (remember that one?) and even ROLLING STONE. “Those were the days before the internet and being a rock journalist looked like the coolest job imaginable.” says LUSH “But reading these magazines had me imagining that one day I’d be the artist giving all of the clever answers to some poor guy with a tape recorder. Well, life has a way of surprising you. Now, I’m the poor guy with the tape recorder and asking all of the questions.”
