  Blues & Beyond Review by R. Mark Rhodes
  Paragould Daily Press - Paragould, Arkansas

  Jimi Hendrix once said “Blues is easy to play, but hard to feel,” and there are
many musicians out there who fall into this trap. However Chris Stevens is not one of them. His album “Blues & Beyond” is a mixture of original and cover acoustic blues that you can feel all the way down to your soul.

  The third cover on the album is track eight, a cover of Peter Green's "Black Magic Woman", first recorded by Fleetwood Mac, but made famous by Carlos Santana. Steven's version is an instrumental acoustic version and I really enjoy the slow smooth tempo of the song.

  I really liked the album. All the songs have a slow melodious groove that is perfect to put on while entertaining, relaxing or playing in the background while working. If you are a fan of the blues you will want this for your collection. If you are not a blues fan you should still check out this album as I think you will immediately become a convert. I wish the packaging had been better, but money is probably an issue considering the fact of not having a major label behind him.

  "Blues & Beyond" gets a 'B.'


   CHRIS performs with PASSION.

   "Everyone I talked to loved your set."

                                Robert Satler, promoter ARKFEST.
   CHRIS takes the audience on a journey through time.

   "We loved your song choices," Dana McCurdy.

   CHRIS embraces the challenge of crafting a dynamic portrayal of songs - some  original & some traditional - Classic Rock & Blues from the 50's, 60's & 70's - on both acoustic and electric guitar.
   CHRISco-founded the successful Los Angels-based Blues-Rock trio, LIAR’S DICE. He co-wrote, played the guitars and sang on the self-titled album. The album contained the original song “Don’t Change the Answer” which climbed to #2 on KSYM-FM in San Antonio, Texas. The song also reached #4 on WWVU-FM in Charleston, West Virginia. Two other songs on the album, a blues-rock cover of the Ides of March “Vehicle” and original song “Like-A-Roller” both climbed to #5 on WERG-FM in Erie, Pennsylvania.
   CHRIS spent years playing ‘cover songs’ and learning the signature licks of the masters which helpshim bring a passionate, improvisational style of guitar and vocals to the studio and live performance stage.

   "I enjoy learning the real licks as it helps me with technique and more importantly, artistic expression," Chris Stevens.
