Stevie Cornell

Stevie is a songwriter whose roots go way back to the vibrant East Bay punk scene of the late 70s and a band called the Young Adults. He then did an about face and got involved in the beginnings of the Bay Area Americana scene with The Movie Stars, who ruled the club scene in the late 80s and early 90s, putting out two critically acclaimed indie albums before blowing up. From the ashes of that band came the great retro country band Red Meat, who are still a very popular SF draw. Stevie, however, left the group and moved to LA to study film scoring and arranging, which led to a self recorded album called "Pidginhole".  He then moved back to Vermont to raise a kid in the country, and taught guitar to Vermont kids, including a young Noah Kahan. Back in California, he now lives in the North Bay. His music is very eclectic, reflecting all of the twists and turns of his long musical journey, but underlying everything is a pretty classical 60s pop vibe. His guitar style is unique and features a twangy Fender sound, complimented by Alan Weiss on bass and  vocals and new member Marcus David on small kit drums and percussion.
