“Cormier doesn’t follow any pattern and I doubt you’ll find much else like him. That would be the reason he’s probably worth your time!” –Rick Huff, The Western Way, The Official Publication of the Western Music Assoc.
“Steve Cormier is as far as you can get from being a rhinestone cowboy. From his life as a working cowboy and rodeo hand in the Flint Hills of Kansas and Eastern New Mexico, on through a career as a history professor, and today when he’s on tour singing and playing guitar, Steve is the real deal. Always has been. When you listen to Steve sing, you can close your eyes and you’re there, sitting by the campfire at night, trying to decide on whether to have one more cup of coffee before rolling in, or in the bunkhouse after the stories have died down and all you need is a little music before the lamp is blown out. This is the music of the West. The music of hardship and trials and laughter and love. Steve Cormier takes you there and lets you enjoy your stay.” –Slim Randles, syndicated western newspaper columnist, biographer of Max Evans, author of 14 books including “A Cowboy’s Guide to Growing Up Right.” Recipient of the 2012 Rounders Award. Packer for Sequoia-Kings Pack Trains for eight seasons.
“His music touches the great themes of the cowboy legend, lost love, time beyond recall, the solitary bearer of bitter pride, the long look down the road.” –J.W. Sparrow, Victory Review, Seattle, Washington
“When Steve Cormier sings classic cowboy ballads, we feel we are hearing them for the first time. He combines his experience as a working ranch hand with his love of history and his knack for spinning a good yarn. Suddenly the songs are more than just sentimental reminders of a imagined past–we sense the danger, the loneliness, and the politics early cowboys faced in following their trade. Steve’s dry humor and ability to TELL the songs lead us from the past into the present. In sharing his own catchy songs, he reminds us that cowboy life and humor are very much alive today. Steve’s guitar accompaniment, rich with southwestern dance rhythms, are memorable.” –Charlie Baum and Lisa Null, The Folklore Society of Greater Washington D.C.
“Sings real cowboy songs with style and wit.”
–Rich Warren, Chicago Magazine
“A Festival Find.”
–The Toronto Star
“Artfully interwoven ballads.”
–The Unicorn Coffeehouse, State University of New York, Fredonia
“To listen to Steve Cormier is like getting to know an instant old friend. While you’re enjoying yourself, you’re also learning all sorts of fascinating things about our country and its past, comfortably put into song.”
–Jackie Alper, WRPI Radio, Troy, New York
“Humorous of sad, in the fingers and voice of Cormier, these songs open a window on a way of life that is all but lost now, but which he renders as a living, breathing human experience.” –Mel Minter, Albuquerque, The Magazine.
“He sings the songs of the American West with caring love and real dedication to the romance and reality that embodies the old (and new) west.”
–Art Thieme, Come For To Sing, Chicago, Ill.
