My dear friend Sabrina invited me and the boyfriend to come watch her boyfriend play some music at Eye Level Art last night.
Let me just say: WOW.
I mean, HOLY CRAP HE'S SO FREAKING GOOD wow.
Steven Fiore is a local musician who has instantly become one of my favorite Charleston artists. The rustic charm of Eye Level Art was the perfect setting for Fiore's energetic, folksy music. It's romantic, exciting, fresh, and best of all, originial.
My parent's generation was spoiled with the music of their day; Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Bob Dylan and others all had hits coming out one right after the other. They didn't have to wait for the single track to drop that carried the weight of the album - the entire albums were all made of hits. In today's music world there is so much technology that tries to "enhance" the singer's voice and music that it ends up falling flat. Fiore's talent needs no such enhancements. Unless, of course, you add the voice of another talented artist, Hayley Shaw, whose vocal harmonies are almost like another instrument in Fiore's band.
So if you're in the mood for some local flavor and good music, keep an eye out for when Steven Fiore is playing next. He'll rock your socks off.
