To be honest, I should amend my previous post about the reasons I've been getting back into music lately. The newest album by local Michigan favorites Steppin' In It was a gift from my folks and I've been loving it for months now. It's only the latest addition to a growing body of recordings from this yet to go national group of traditional musicians. It remains a mystery to me that they have not been "discovered" by some larger label with wider distribution. Although, maybe that's just the way these Michigan boys like it. Cheers to their newly-penned, old timey tunes and heartfelt ballads, all set amidst the subtle Michigamee landscape.
