Hot on the heels of “Break Away”, Steve’s debut solo album with Escape Music we are presented with “Diamond Dealer”, an album that bursts with fresh ideas and originality.
Steve originally teamed up with Escape Music to provide lead vocals for the Boston Tribute album (ESM 081), singing 'Amanda', one of the album highlights. With Steve working alongside Escape Music, the 'FM' radio came out of the closet once more, a fine triple album “Long Time No See” (ESM 086) featuring the three albums “Paraphernalia”, “Aphrodisiac” and “Live at the Astoria” and the double disc “Long Lost Friends” ESM121 (Dead Man’s Shoes and Takin’ it to the Streets). More recently Steve teamed up with Steve Morris of “Heartland” fame to record the much acclaimed “Shadowman” albums “Land of the Living” (ESM 099) and “Different Angles” (ESM127) and a classic third recording “Ghost in the Mirror” (ESM179).
Steve has also fronted two releases by “The Ladder”, which is a dream come true for all fans of FM as the band is an extension of the great FM themselves. “Future Miracles” (ESM109) was welcome by fans old and new and it was hailed by many as the best album of 2004. More recently “Sacred” (ESM149) is an album that hones the identity of “The Ladder”. His vocal contribution to the new “AOR” CD (ESM194 Journey to LA) has been warmly received.
Steve’s first solo album “Break Away” had fans divided as it was so much different from his work with FM, but many grew to love it as it was something different from the norm.
For the second album Khalil Turk introduced Tor Talle to Steve and they started writing together materials for the past 12 months and they decided to take this album towards more AOR/Rock which Steve Overland well known for and much loved for, and the result is "Diamond Dealer" What Steve gives us with his second outing is a more classic approach to melodic rock, with great songs that have feeling and depth. Songs such as “Brave new world”, “I’m Still Breathing” and “Heart’s don’t lie”, "Bring Me Water" all hit home with maximum effect. They are sung from the heart and it is another testimony to the fact that Steve is probably the most passionate vocalist that the UK has ever produced.
