The Steele Hart sound is inspired by American, British and French recording artists.
Steele Hart began songwriting and producing music around the turn of the century while living in France. Compilations produced are:
Transient Ambition (who knows how many more?) - future concept album
Fox Harbor (11 Originals - 1 Cover) Copyright 2018 (pending)
Babyboom (11 Originals) Copyright 2013
La Maison Bleue (9 Originals - 1 licensed Pink Floyd cover) Copyright 2006
Chic in the Rain (4 Originals) Copyright 2001
"Chic in the Rain" was produced in late July 2001 after a few years of songwriting while living in France. This amateur demo of 4 songs marked the beginning, and an inspiration to continue songwriting after moving to the coast of Carolina in 2001.
"La Maison Bleue" was produced between July and November 2006 on a just a little 4-track recorder representing over 6 years of songwriting. This compilation was posted exclusively on SoundClick.com in late December 2006 and available to the public on the internet for the first time.
"Babyboom" is Steele Hart's second full length compilation with 11 original songs spanning over 7 years of songwriting and home studio producing. The compilation also feature an amazing rendition of the Oasis song, "Half the World Away" with Olivier Hallereau on lead vocals, recorded June 2000 in Pornic, France adding several layers of the Steele Hart sound instruments between 2007 and 2011. This album was produced, mixed and mastered using Mixcraft 5 recording software and released in its entirety on Soundclick.com in 2011. Several songs from this compilation have already been posted including "From Here", "Belle Mer", "Round 'n Round in Circles" (co-written by Andy Clay) and "A Perfect Fifth".
Steele Hart songs can be downloaded for a modest $0.25 or if you really like any of them, simply e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, and the .mp3 of the song you want will be sent to you at no cost. The "Babyboom" compilation is also available on CD with a professional, made in USA, CD booklet for $15.00. On the CD version, there will be bonus tracks of Steele Hart music that has never been posted on the Internet.
