\'Singer-songwriter Steve Schultz hails from Poughkeepsie, but he sounds like he\'s from Jersey or maybe even Indiana. Produced by Schultz and guitarist Jeff Berner, \'A Thin Line\' often has a John Mellencamp-esque anthemic Americana vibe, with chiming guitars and a big beat, as in the title track \'A Thin Line.\' That theme continues with \'Sign\' stocked with majestic piano fills by Matt Wiltrout that recall Woodstock\'s David Sancious (who made the early Springsteen records sound so important). \'Hold On\' has a rolling beat and an anxious heart. The Saturday night ode \'Standing at the Edge Of the World\' has an earnest approach, while \'Step Right Up\' has a relentless rhythm. Schultz\' capable pipes aren\'t going to dazzle the judges on \'American Idol,\' but they get the job done. A fine first effort.\' -- Dave Malachowski -- Daily Freeman, Kingston, NY \'[\'A Thin Line\'] shows a lot of promise!\' -- Jimmy Buff, Radio Personality/Program Director -- WDST, Woodstock, NY \'There\'s some really beautiful music [on] here.\' -- Sharon Panaro, Host, \'Regional Frequency\' -- WVKR, Poughkeepsie, NY The old adage is true: history repeats itself. As cliché as it sounds, music is no different, and this is a fact that Steve Schultz understands completely. Through the use of superb songwriting and genuine musicianship (instead of the latest technology), he produces an authentic sound that is severely underrepresented in current "popular" music: passionate and exciting, without the excess and pretension of the music industry. In December 2006, Steve Schultz entered GaluminumFoil Productions in Brooklyn, NY, to record his debut album, \'A Thin Line.\' Sparked by the music of The Beatles and Bruce Springsteen, and armed with a clear vision for his music, Steve was joined by engineer/guitarist Jeff Berner (Chris Cubeta & the Liars Club, Busticate), bassist Seth Rivers (Logan, Arcoda, Levon Helm, Busticate), saxophonist Owen Sczerba (Busticate), drummer Chris Snykus (Jupiter Sunrise, Perfect Thyroid), and keyboardist Matt Wiltrout. Recorded over the course of 5 ½ months, \'A Thin Line\' is a collection of songs full of power and poise, and was released in August 2007. Since the release of \'A Thin Line,\' Steve has consistently gained new fans and sold more CDs with every show. And even though every CD purchased from Steve Schultz carries a 14-day money back guarantee (not applicable with any downloads or CDBaby -- sorry), not one has been returned. Furthermore, Steve has received significant radio airplay on WKZE (Red Hook, NY) and WVKR (Poughkeepsie, NY). In fact, in December 2007, Steve Schultz was the featured guest artist on \'Regional Freguency,\' WVKR\'s local music spotlight.
