Welcome, Steven Graves! My new CD Make a New World is out and making waves!

In 2009, after 24 years as a land use consultant first and a musician second, Steven Graves decided to put guitarist, singer and songwriter at the top of his current resume. A year in the making, his debut CD, “Make a New World” has been released.

Teaching himself guitar at age 15, music has always been woven into the fabric of his life. Initially inspired by the rock guitarist of the 60’s and 70’s, his interests expanded into social change through music. Today, Steven’s songs are influenced by pioneers like Bob Dylan, John Lennon, and Bob Marley who infused their music with social and
political meaning. “I was always fascinated and in awe of the power of music to transform our society.”

Steven’s unique sound reflects his roots as a Californian, blending elements of reggae, surf, country, jazz and rock with his sincere calls for humanity to rise up and create a peaceful world. His highly polished grooves, combined with messages of hope and possibility, allow “Make a New World” to connect with a diverse audience.

Steven says, “I wanted to make the album fun with danceable rhythms and inspiring lyrics that hopefully will speak to people at a deep level. I feel compelled to write songs about core beliefs that define who I am. What does it mean to be a human being in these times? How do we find peace on both a personal and global level? Love for oneself, one’s family, one’s community and the world at large. Can we create a world without war? Can we live in the present and take life on even when there is fear? ” Steven delivers these central themes of the release with humility and grace.

Building his career on environment stewardship, Steven and his wife Paddy also built the first LEED (Leadership in Environmental and Energy Design) certified development in the State of California and share a passion for green building. They have studied yoga, eastern philosophies, and try to live a healthy organic lifestyle.

“My goal in this lifetime, is to awaken, to become a fully conscious being, and in that radiate love, joy and light the way for others” he says. Steven currently lives in Capitola, California with his wife Paddy Easton Graves, and his 4 year old daughter Harper.
