CD: Stephanie Grace - Life’s Okay

Stephanie Grace
Life’s Okay

Too Young to be Lonely 2:57 Life’s Okay 3:56 How’s That Working for Ya 3:29
Wait a Minute 3:37 Who Do You Think About 3:29 Loser 4:26

Talk about a pain in the ass. I was attempting to fix a PDF file. Then, accidentally saved the file after I messed it up, tried for almost two days to fix it, and after all that realized I had the correct file in my email. This may seem like no big deal to you, but if you think about it I just wasted 1,260 minutes of my life. Up until this week I wouldn’t have even realized that except my daughter keeps asking everyone if they know how many minutes are in a year. Just in case you don’t know the answer it’s 525,600 minutes. And if you want to attempt to argue about it (with leap year or anything), YOU ARE WRONG!!! Because her first grade teacher told her. Now, I can only hope that Stephanie Grace can comfort me by explaining how that incredible waste of my life was okay.

What is pretty entertaining is the fact that you can add a few words to the titles, put them into dialogue, and they almost could be used to teach one of those ESL (English Second Language) conversations that I had to write and practice with students while I was in Taiwan. Maybe I’ll make this one for a college class. For Example:

Stephanie: I’m lonely.
Jeremy: Oh. You’re Too Young to be Lonely.
Stephanie: Long time, no see. How’s life been treating you?
Jeremy: Well, Life’s Okay. I’m married now and have a daughter.
Stephanie: Oh yeah, How’s That Working for Ya?
Jeremy: It’s good. Actually, since I last saw you life couldn’t be better.
Stephanie: Wait a Minute. Don’t you miss me?
Jeremy: No way in hell. I’m sooo glad I got rid of you.
Stephanie: I don’t believe you. If you don’t think about us and our relationship, Who Do You Think About?
Jeremy: Cooking up my pet rabbit on my stove does not constitute a relationship. Could you please go away? You really bother me.
Stephanie: Fine. One day you’ll wish you weren’t so mean to me.
Jeremy: I seriously doubt that. Goodbye.
Stephanie: Fine, Loser.

I really was given key phrases and had to make things like that up for classes I taught. I’m sure you could care less so let me get back to the review. I like the introduction to Too Young to be Lonely. She really has a beautiful voice. I really like the guitar jam, it also has that digital sound or that sound that would only be added by a very professional recording studio. Lyrically, I’d probably have to check out her age, her look, to see if this was fitting, if she wrote it, or if it was one of those manufactured songs.

Hmmmm. I checked. I just couldn’t help myself. She really is young, and it seems as though she focuses on songwriting. So far, I’m pretty impressed. There are only six songs on this album and it says she wrote five of them. Maybe I just played Russian Roulette and lost or maybe that was one of the five. Okay, I’ll be a little more serious about this.
Life’s Okay comes next. For some reason, I just can’t put the picture of her to the voice. It just is unbelievable. With this song being the title track I’d have to believe this is one of the songs that she wrote, although lyrically I’d have to say it’s far beyond her years. What really makes this song is the upbeat attitude mixed with the range of vocals and the positive message.
The next title I like so I may have to warn you of my bias. How’s That Working for Ya is a great title because I just made the exact same comment to an old friend of mine last week without even thinking. He told me he’d been married for eight years and has a kid. My stupid response was, “How’s that working for ya?”
He looked at me with a puzzled look on his face and said, “Well, you would know.”
The song itself begins a lot different than the others. It sounds like someone finger picking a banjo. It gets into a fiddle solo but it’s not what you’d expect from either. It’s not bluegrass it sounds more like a foot stomping southern rock. So far this is the odd one out, so it’s possible I just located the song that wasn’t written by her. Although, I like this song because it gets your head bobbing and keeps it moving long after the song is over.
Wait a Minute. No, it’s getting late. Oh that’s the name of the song. Sorry, I’m so tired. Just like some people talk to themselves when they’re delirious, I find myself writing to myself. Okay getting back to my headphones. This song has an eerie fog ridden swamp feel to it. that Louisiana bayou gator filled feel.
Who Do You Think About, seems less like the other lyrics or message. It’s a beautiful song but the rest of the album has much more of an upbeat message whereas this seems more like another sad country song.
And the last song is the Loser. Now, this sounds more like the upbeat sound and message that the rest of the album sends. I really like the acoustic guitar on this. This one also shows her age, which is appropriate.
My best guess is that the one song she didn’t write was Who Do You Think About. I’m not sure but now I am going to check. I’ll be right back with the answer. Well I checked her lyrics page and I believe I’m right(I should ask my daughter’s first grade teacher just to be safe).
Seriously, I never expected this, and never in a million years would I have thought I’d be writing a review for someone this young and talented. Like I was trying to tell you before, take another sad country song turn it upside down and inside out, add a beautiful voice, an incredible dream, an upbeat attitude, a smidgen of youth, a positive message, and then you have Stephanie Grace.

P.S. Thank you Stephanie for comforting me and explaining how those 1,260 minutes I wasted were okay. You made each and every one of them worthwhile.

Tribute To The Legendary Allman Brothers Band


Leon Russell, Steve Morse & Pat Travers Lead A Stellar Cast Of Music Superstars On This Tribute To The Legendary Allman Brothers Band!

Also features Commander Cody, Molly Hatchet, The Oak Ridge Boys, Artimus Pyle Band, Reese Wynans (Double Trouble), Tinsley Ellis, Robben Ford & more!

Los Angeles, CA - One of music’s biggest and most influential juggernauts gets the respect and admiration they so richly deserve on this brand new tribute album available May 27th from Cleopatra Records! Featuring an eclectic group of rock, country, and blues legends, Midnight Rider - A Tribute To The Allman Brothers Band offers energetic new covers of the classic hits “Midnight Rider,” “Ramblin’ Man,” and “Whipping Post” as well as one of the most famous instrumental songs in all of rock music “Jessica,” alongside many more Southern fried favorites!

“The Allman Brothers were a central part of my roots,” proclaims guitarist Steve Morse, who shreds his way through a smoldering version of “Whipping Post” on the album. “Living in Georgia much of my life, they were the local legends that everybody loved. They had the swing, the inventive double guitar parts, the ability to jam just long enough to keep the audience, and that golden voice of Greg’s! When my instrumental rock band, the Dixie Dregs, played, we often played ‘Jessica,’ which automatically makes any audience start moving and smiling. I’ve been lucky enough to sit in with many of the members at various times, and we have shared a lot of common ground. I’m still a fan!”

Duane Allen, lead vocalist for country legends The Oak Ridge Boys, declares, “‘Ramblin’ Man’ is the national anthem of Southern Rock & Roll, so it is a huge honor to be asked to be a part of this tribute.” Allen’s sentiments are echoed by several other participants including blues guitarist Eric Gales who considered it a “great honor” and Tinsley Ellis who also speaks enthusiastically of the group as “one of a handful of musical acts, along with Ray Charles and Willie Nelson, that are considered to be a genre unto themselves. It is a great honor to be among the other stellar acts paying tribute to such a legendary and influential American band.”

Speaking for a next generation of blues rock artists, Eli Cook offers both high praise and a word of advice: “The Allman Brothers’ story of talent, hard work, and blind devotion to creating an honest and unique sound is one that every artist should study and imitate. Just as they cut their teeth on Taj Mahal, Cream, Elmore James, and all the great early R&B artists, today’s players are wise to woodshed with the Eat A Peach and Live At The Fillmore albums.” Or just pick up a copy of Midnight Rider - A Tribute To The Allman Brothers Band and let these boys show you how it’s done!
