Bio:
Long-simmered songs by an awardwinning singer-songwriter and instrumentalist, "a piece of it all" is pure Americana.

Mountain and hammered dulcimers join guitar, mandolin, piano, bass, percussion, Hammond organ, mandolin and more to provide the best settings for these songs, composed over a 30-year period. Produced by Ken Whiteley, at Pyramid Records in Toronto, Ontario, recorded and mixed by Nicolas Tjielios, Steve is assisted by some very talented musicians who have garnered acclaim for both their live and session performances:

George Koller (bass)
Brad Hart (drumkit, djembe, congas)
Anne Lindsay (fiddle/violin)
Chris Whiteley (trumpet, blues harp)
Eve Goldberg (backing vocals)
Ken Whiteley (6 and 12-string acoustic, classical and electric guitars, piano, Hammond organ, mandolin, mandola, accordian, backing vocals and ship’s bell.)

“This superbly crafted recording with its lush, full instrumentation and strong, clear vocals both surprised and delights. Long time fans encounter a maturing artist. First time listeners will be fans before the final chord fades away. Each song stands on its own, whole and complete. Put together with the other 12 that join it here, each is a piece of a marvelous whole that aesthetically pleases and culturally challenges. As you take this journey into the artist’s soul, you will encounter yourself, standing at the intersection of your own life and today’s culture. What will you find when you look around there?” —from Jim Pierce’s liner notes

back (to the setting sun)

Reviewers say:

“…world-class dulcimer talent, multi-instrumentalist, folk music social consciousness, and great sense of …. Eulberg truly does have a piece of it all in his newest release by the same name… Steve sings about real life joys that the listener will want to share, and although he also sings about the harshest of tribulations he never leaves you without hope.” —Jim Babcock. cdbaby review

“…some thoughtful and heartful songs! I miss America too... great song.” — Susan Trump, folksinger, New York

"...what a tasty little masterpiece. Eulberg's musicianship is matched by his songwriting. Long after you've forgotten other people's songs, his work sneaks back and haunts you in all the right ways." —Robert Morgan Fisher

“…lorem ipsum ….” SingOut!

“…a very traditional feel though, generally, the arrangements are more modern and this blend of traditionalism and modernity really works. Steve tackles a few thorny issues in these 13 songs and there might be the odd one that makes some listeners a little uncomfortable as he holds forth on subjects like political, religious and ethnic intolerance, changing moral values, social injustice, human relationships simple and complex and conflicting emotions. …The programme includes the achingly beautiful “Sad”, a superb revival of the traditional “Careless Love”.… the wonderful journey to discover oneself in “I Was Lost” and the spiritual “Beauty In The World”. —Pete
