stated, filk is the folk music of science fiction and fantasy
fandom, with all sorts of crossovers to many other genres of folk
and rock. Filkers tend to not take themselves too seriously; there's
a lot of humor inherent in the genre (I mean- look at him!
Can't take that too seriously, can we?).
That's not to say
that all filk is humor- far from it. Songs that focus on space,
modern technology, as well as fantasy, horror, and the here-and-now
are all accepted.
Steve's music focuses
on relationships, with storytelling elements pulled from his own
experience and the experiences of friends and family. His albums
reflect the depth of his songwriting talents.
