Steve Mednick lives in New Haven, Connecticut where plays guitar, keyboards and harmonica as a solo artist and member of the group, B.O.O.M. I Patrick Ferrucci, Review of "Bucket of Steam", New Haven Register (9 March 2007) 'Bucket of Steam' finds Steve Mednick laying down the law. That pun was too easy. On the 13-track disc, lawyer and former politician Mednick proves that he's listened to his fair share of Rolling Stones records. Mick and boys' influence is all over this baby. But there's also a lot of folk, and Bob Dylan is the touchstone there. But let's talk about 'Dark Ages Reprise,' the irresistible track that leads off the disc. It stands to reason that Mednick was going for a 'You Can't Always Get What You Want' vibe on the song, but instead the climactic and dramatic buildup and crescendos sound like a 'Bat Out Of Hell' B-side. And that's high praise. All it needs is a searing solo from Todd Rundgren. Not once on the album does Mednick not make professional music. The 54-year-old Hamden resident has been listening to very good music his entire life, and on 'Bucket of Steam,' those influences synthesize on a set of solid songs. But here's hoping the songwriter goes more theatrical next time. The prospect of a whole record of 'Dark Ages Reprise' excites. II Eric Danton, Review of "Bucket of Steam" and "Dark Ages Reprise", Hartford Courant (8 March 2007) Steve Mednick, Bucket of Steam and Dark Ages Reprise (self-released) ...yields to his inner folkie on a pair of records with a strong protest bent. Indeed, the subtitle to 'Dark Ages Reprise' is 'Songs in the Key of Gw.' That's Bush, one presumes. Mednick claims, 'I am not a singer,' in the liner notes of 'Bucket of Steam,' but he does a credible job on rootsy songs featuring acoustic guitar, mandolin, piano and violin. ('Dark Ages Reprise' is a seven-song EP that includes a couple of tunes from 'Bucket of Steam.') III Craig Gilbert, New Haven Advocate (21 February 2007) Steve Mednick, Bucket of Steam . Mednick's untrained voice, melodies and lyrics work well around a full acoustic band, and also when he scales down to solo singer-songwriter mode on piano or guitar. Sure, he's got an anti-Bush song ("Sidestepping [in the Dark]")-those are now mandatory by law in the folk community. But instead of going down the same well-worn, rutted folk road, Mednick has a John Hiatt/Warren Zevon aura around his work, especially on "Second Heart" and "Roxbury Interlude." A decent, mellow listen-coming from a guy whose day job is being a lawyer ! IV Mark Gould Review of "Dark Ages Reprise" Sound Waves Magazine (****1/2) Who says that attorneys can't have fun, talent, and be interesting? Judging by this spectacular release, there's clearly no law against it. Mednick, a practicing Connecticut lawyer by day, sounds at times like a cross between the best of Mark Knopfler and Warren Zevon, with a dash of Bruce Springsteen tossed in, for good measure. However, he's certainly no imitator. He's got the kind of voice, emotion, and phrasing that is uniquely his, and his alone. And, his seven songs on this EP are exemplary. Frankly, he's just got loads of talent, a ton of ability and a flair for putting it all together. Yet, perhaps even more important to the stand out quality of this release is the sound. Too many times, self-released albums, created far away from the studio muscle of the major companies, sounds like, well, it's self-released. Mednick, though, clearly (no pun intended) knows that the sound is crucial to his outstanding work. To that end, he's surrounded himself with a fabulous producer, Eddie Seville, and the disc is expertly mastered by Paul Orofino, with the work being done in Mednick's native Connecticut and in upstate New York. In their hands, the sound is crystal clear, stark and stands solely on it's own, without resort to any studio gimmicks. With a lesser performer, that might, ironically, reveal the flaws in the music. However, it's a good and right thing, here, because that allows Mednick's talent to shine through these great songs and performances. From the open
