Media tidbits aplenty

I have reviews, press coverage and interviews to share with with you today.

Here’s the first reviews of my new album, Nuclear Family:

CD HotList:
“Steafán Hanvey is one of those singer-songwriters who will probably continue being classified as a “folk rock” artist long after he’s left any significant element of traditional music behind. (This is the price you pay for playing an acoustic guitar.) On Nuclear Family, he rocks out in a variety of styles, from the crunchy and compressed bombast of “Darling Please” and “Show Me the Woman” to the more Beatlesque “Back to You,” but there’s also plenty of what can reasonably be called folk rock. Hanvey has a nice, subtle way with a hook and a pleasantly plainspoken singing style.”
