Project Description

Steve Forde


Beer and Women. Rodeo Freak. Captain Good Times. You’re in Steve Forde territory… 

As a high profile Country Music Channel personality and one of regional Australia’s biggest touring acts, Steve Forde has quickly become one of Australia’s most recognisable country music artists. Add farmer, former bareback bronco rider and entrepreneur to the mix, and you’re starting to get an idea about the man. His ethos? “Hard Work‚ Long Days‚ Hard Work‚ Hard Play”.

He’s not traditional; he breaks new ground, writes his own ticket and doesn’t conform to the mould. Steve is an enigma.

His new self-titled album is his first release through a major distributor and it’s set to take Forde to the next level. It’s time to get to know Steve Forde. He’s changing country music and you’ll want to be part of it…

Steve Forde features four brand new tracks, including the undeniably youthful, summer hit, ‘Summer’s Little Angel’, and the album’s first single, ‘Metropolis’.

Also included are new recordings of eight songs released previously through independent distribution during Forde’s formative years as a recording artist. 

For this latest album project, Forde teamed up with leading US producer Richard Landis. Landis’ track record is very impressive having produced high selling albums with the likes of superstars Vince Gill, Neil Diamond, Kenny Rogers, Eddie Rabbitt and Ronnie Milsap; just to name a few. 

Nine of the twelve album tracks were written or co-written by Forde himself. Tracks such as ‘The Letter’, ‘Beer And Women’, ‘Life’s Getting in the Way Of Living’ and ‘Drinking Things Over’ demonstrate Forde’s undisputable song-writing talent; whether he’s writing an up-tempo country-rock party track, a drinking song or a genuinely heartfelt ballad. The Deluxe CD/DVD Limited Edition of Steve Forde also features six music videos, including two live recordings from the 2006 Deni Ute Muster.
