Steve Eaton, a great songwriter…
As a songwriter, Steve’s songs have earned gold and platinum records for The Carpenters and Art Garfunkel. His songs have also been recorded by many other artists, including Glen Campbell, The Righteous Brothers, Ann Murray, and Lee Greenwood.
Steve has received Emmy nominations for his original music written for PBS and has written music for the Nature Conservancy, National Wildlife Federation and the National Endowment for the Arts. Some consider his song Idaho I Love You to be the true state song of Idaho.
As a performer, Steve has performed in a variety of venues all over the country, and has been a member of several bands including The Fabulous Chancellors and Paul Revere and the Raiders. Steve has played and shared the stage with many well-known entertainers and recently had the opportunity to open for Ray Charles.
As a recording artist, Steve’s first album “Hey, Mr. Dreamer” was released by Capitol Records to critical acclaim. Two of Steve’s early albums have recently been re-released by Vivid Sound Company. One of Steve’s most popular CDs is “Wish You Were Here,” a CD containing a selection of Steve’s songs that reflect his unique blend of rhythm and blues with influences of country and bluegrass. His “Montana in a Song” and the “The Train Doesn’t Stop Here Anymore” have been acclaimed for their poignant lyrics and distinctive arrangements. Steve’s latest CD is entitled “Out of the Blues” and reflects Steve’s signature keyboard style on this mix of jazz and blues arrangements.
Steve lives in the Boise foothills where he has a recording studio and continues to perform at various venues throughout the country.
