New Jersey native Steve Marion, also known as Delicate Steve, and his band of progressive rockers came to Signal Kitchen to share their unique take on the genre, driven by their eclectic blend of influences ranging from African rhythms to American folk traditions to California surf rock. Layered percussion and poly-rhythms drive their more straight-forward and catchy melodic ideas, giving a sense of familiarity while providing a complex instrumental-only sound for the listener to explore.
Delicate Steve has been releasing music since 2011 with his first album Wondervisions on David Byrne’s highly regarded Luaka Bop record label. Since then, he has released several singles and another full album in 2012, Positive Force. The band joined us at our venue in Burlington to perform an hour long set.
