A live and unplugged version of the album Euroclydon!
Euroclydon was the name of the deadly storm Paul faced at sea, where there was heavy destruction, intense winds and ultimately major ship wreck, where chances of survival were slim to none, however God had a purpose for Paul and his shipmates. God's purpose was far greater than this storm. Hanging on to nothing but God's word, Paul ultimately survived the intense winds at sea, to eventually go on and fulfill what God destined him to fulfill. God had similar plans for Just Steve, overcoming shipwrecks of his own. This is a metaphorical hip hop, poetic live interpretation of Just Steve facing his own storms.
This recording has a full organic live band, featuring Trumpet solos that touch the soul, string arrangements to tug at the heart, new Chord progressions and vocal arrangements to please the ear, live percussion and drums to hit your spirit and lyrics to penetrate your mind. Just Steve pouring out his heart in hopes that listeners will be challenged and uplifted, enjoy the latest piece of art the Chicago artist Just Steve offers.
