Album

Review (from 2005) : Steve Doyle is a 2004 Starmaker finalist and it shows in this fine new CD by the classy young performer. The opening track is the new single A Car Load Of People, already making inroads on Australian radio with its simple take-me-back reminiscences.

Steve is a consummate songwriter and the album is a wonderful collection of his contemporary country style. Just In Time, No Work Today and the 2002 released single In The Country are quality high spirited works. Lonesome Road Tonight (written with Troy Gentz) is a gently rolling bluesey contribution.

His award winning track (TSA Vic-Song and Mildura Top Of The State songwriting competition) He Thinks That’s Too Far has been renamed for the album and now stands in pride of place as the title track Where The Highway Leads. The track is one of unpretentious depths.

Produced by Joe Camilleri, the album is equally unpretentious, but still retains a simple sophistication from Steve’s innovative songwriting skills.

Single

Review (from 2002):  The last two years has seen a surge in the career of Melbourne singer/songwriter Steve Doyle. Songs like “The Lady” and “She Looked Like You” have gained recognition in songwriting competitions in Australia and New Zealand, culminating in wins in 2002 with “He Thinks That’s Too Far.”

Graduation in 2002 from the College of Australian Country Music honed both Steve’s musical skills and also his desire to build a solid foundation in the industry, and his new single is a major step in that building process.

“In The Country” is another self-penned song that says a lot about this young man – it’s contemporary, has a tough edge (with the help of legendary producer Joe Camilleri), and positions Steve exactly where he wants to be. It’s young country with real kick!
