The truth: Eli Stevens songs are not what you expect. You might react by feeling insulted, offended, amused. The guy's got opinions, and you're likely to agree with some, and laugh at the rest. He doesn't go negative, well maybe just a little. You couldn't call him an optimist either. Getting Dark, the third album from Eli Stevens, is a mélange, a smorgasbord, or maybe a jumble of contrasting styles and subjects. The style is sometimes slightly gritty Country, some people in the headlines get skewered, there's some melodic stuff for folks who like to hum along, and plenty of Tele and Les Paul tone. But don't just take my word for it - come in and check him out...
