"FRAME OF MIND" ALBUM REVIEWS

"With "Frame of Mind" Steve Archdeacon has found his niche. The singer-songwriter strums his strings and encapsulates passion and joy as he sings to us. The life experience shows on this album, he shares his carpe diem philosophy on “No Regrets,” creates a feel good anthem with “Living the Dream,” and inspires us to turn the page with “A New Chapter."

-Jeff Walker (Lyricist/Musician)--"Frame of Mind" Album Review

"9 songs that hit home in every way - empowerment, positivity, family love, country pride, life retrospectives - this is a strong guitar-driven album filled with positive affirmations and a perfect morning wake up to make your day the best it can be. Gonna add to my spotify rotation."

-Gilli Moon (Musician/Artist/Entrepreneur)--"Frame of Mind" Album Review www.gillimoon.com

"Just finished listening to Archdeacon's second CD, Love it! It takes you on an inspirational journey to want to make your own personal difference in this world and to be the best you that you can be. His touching tribute to our soldiers (Veterans Day) and his mom in the song "My Angel" are beautiful."

"NO TURNING BACK" ALBUM REVIEWS

"His passion for the guitar is reminiscent of Clapton while his piano work is thoughtful and soothing. He connects to the audience stirring real emotion, not only from him but from the crowd. His music is uplifting without being frivolous."
-Connie S. Poole - On Tap Magazine from live performance in DE

***************************************************************************************************************
“New Yorker Steve Archdeacon (artist name "Archdeacon") brings us 7 songs that tell us his personal stories, hopes and emotions, through soft rock guitar driven grooves, well constructed songwriting, and strong vocals. I very much enjoyed Archdeacon’s album as a testament to his story, and his expression. It’s definitely a strong calling card for him as a songwriter, recording artist, and producer.”
-Gilli Moon - Songsalive! CD Review for "No Turning Back"

***************************************************************************************************************
“Rarely can you find an artist that can write from the heart and then back it up with ample talent on both guitar and piano. With a vocal quality reminiscent of Ed Kowalczyk (lead singer of the band LIVE) and John Mayer, Steven Archdeacon is no stranger to delivering the goods. On the debut CD “No Turning Back,” Archdeacon combines smart lyrics, great musicianship, and superb production qualities. I highly recommend checking out this talented new artist. ”
-Ralph Antignano - Homegrown Music Café - Producer

“Chris and I loved listening to your CD together as we've played it over and over...”

"Paid the Price" is STILL my favorite song on the CD... GRRRRREAT TRACK BROTHER MAN!!!!! To all those that haven't heard this... BUY the CD TODAY!!!!... you WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!!!
-Bobby Komstedt - Fan who purchased "No Turning Back" album

***************************************************************************************************************
"Archdeacon seems to already have learned how to captivate the audience, exhibited by him frequently leaving the stage to play guitar within the crowd; most of who were dancing. The band has played in many venues, including a tour in England, but Archdeacon said his gig at the Brickhouse was very special and he hopes to play there again soon. “I appreciate what music has brought in to my life and using my music to raise funds that will help the WWP provide services to American soldiers is the best collaboration I could ever hope for,” he said.
-Jane Koropsak - Freelance Journalist who attended one of our live benefit shows for the WWP

***************************************************************************************************************
“Archdeacon has a way of writing songs that can be uplifting and inspiring…these songs are open the car window and crank the music songs that will really get you going. You owe it to yourself to check out this talented, versatile song weaver. ”
-Randy Surmanak - Fan who purchased "No Turning Back" album on CD Baby
