Honest, sincere, and often humorous, Steven Gellman has been performing his slice-of-life lyrics to audiences across the United States since the mid-90s. Described by Billboard Magazine as "intensely sensitive and impressively intelligent,” Gellman’s songwriting captures the simple moments of everyday life and wraps them in notes that will have you humming along – long after the song is over. On stage, Gellman combines friendly banter with a sonorous, tenor voice that critics have compared to the late John Denver.

"Intensely sensitive and impressively intelligent at the same time."                                ~BILLBOARD MAGAZINE (1998)

“Essential for fans of sensitive acoustic music.”            ~BILLBOARD MAGAZINE (2000)

“Gellman has sort of a John Denver-ish voice in the way he hangs on to a note and floats the vibrato and carries the sentiment of his lyrics.”                                           ~MUSIC MONTHLY

"Gellman's sensitive songcraft incorporates simple but evocative slice-of-life imagery, homespun folk warmth, keen pop instincts, and crisp, first-rate musicianship. Part poetic reflection, part chicken soup for the ears... his soft tenor radiates with a choirboy's pristine poise, yet authentically conveys the depth of his themes."                                                                                                  ~TAYLOR GUITARS
