Bio

Steve Robinson

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.

Steve’s discography includes:

"Steve 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.

The 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."
