Steve Robinson is a songwriter who calls Des Moines, Iowa home. Descriptions of Steve’s music have been as diverse as the music he makes. Steve utilizes a blend
of rock, blues, soul, and experimental sounds for his audience to enjoy his
commanding stage show. As a solo acoustic performer or with a full band this
charismatic locomotive led by a voice that is part primal scream and soulful
swagger captivates audiences and takes them on a ride.
While traveling around America and New Zealand Steve has earned a following
of eclectic fans. Steve released his album 'Hello from the Up-Down Room.' on
Mushroom Cloud Records in 2007. Touring, record sales and radio support have
allowed the band to get spins on college radio and stocking the shelves of
record stores across the Midwest and Northwest of America.

Robinson & The Foundation's Hello From the Up-Down Room is
everything a CD should be
- original, sincere, and both lyrically and melodically sound.
It avoids the two biggest traps that obscure most albums into mediocrity
- the songs do not all sound like each other, nor do they sound like anyone
else. In trying to figure out whom to compare SRTF's sound to, my efforts
were constantly frustrated, and I was forced into the conclusion that Steve
Robinson sounds like Steve Robinson - that simple.
album defies fitting neatly into any one genre; it is both soulful with a
taste of rock and profoundly well-written - no songs about bad breakups or
superficial angst here. Every song is genuine and thoughtful, and executed
flawlessly. Song by song, it is apparent that the intent was to make music
- good music - and to that end, SRTF has succeeded. The concept of
"filler" is clearly a dirty word here; every single track is
purposeful and one piece of the overall puzzle that becomes Steve Robinson
& The Foundation.
Hello From the Up-Down Room provides a peek into the
brilliance of SRTF and promises to be just a hint of the potential of what's
to come. Albums this solid are few and far between, but Steve Robinson &
The Foundation manages to take their place in the ranks of Great Music."
