Review: Steven Farro - 3 Song Demo

Steven Farro – 3 Song Demo
2009, Sound Oasis

Steven Farro is a lyricist/songwriter/band manager from Effingham, New Hampshire looking for collaborators. He submitted his 3 Song Demo for review. Not a lot of information was submitted here so we’ll do our best.

The demo opens with Too Old To Rock N Roll. This is sort of like “Glory Days” revisited. The song features a great guitar hook and a strong pop sensibility. It’s a bit tongue in cheek and sounds like something Kim Mitchell might crank out while he’s sitting around having a beer. It’s a fun listen. Giver Of A Broken Heart is schmaltzy, Broadway Rock Opera material. The unnamed female vocalist on this one is amazing. The demo closes with My Baby Text Me Goodbye. This mildly humorous novelty material, akin to some of the stuff you might have heard on Dr. Demento. It’s another fun song to listen to set to a great pop/country arrangement.

Three songs is tough to judge, but Farro does have a knack for turning phrases. There’s a certain quirky pop sensibility here that might work with the write composer, although Farr may be best suited to writing lighter fare (based on the material presented here). You can stream the songs from the demo at
