THE GOLDBERGER VARIATIONS
Steve Goldberger

(Dec/09) Steve’s latest studio album featuring a few originals but mostly “variations” on songs by his favourite Canadian and global songwriters. A slight departure from his other albums in that he plays most of the instruments himself on most of the songs. However the overall earthy and organic sound he is known for still remains.

    CLUELESS
    Steve Goldberger & the Fringe Locals

    “CLUELESS” (2005) Once again, Steve and his pals put together a new album of diverse material. Steve hits the mark with thirteen new original songs. Crossing over from folk to country, good old rock and blues with tribal rhythms mixed in. This album follows the route of his previous endeavours with writing and production values moving up an extra notch.
    "I put on the SG & the Fringe Locals, Clueless, and I was blown away. That is one high quality, well-crafted collection of tunes. I will be listening to it regularly for the next few days. " -Mike Furnish, CKUW 95.9FM, Winnipeg, MB.

    GUMBO DREAMS
    Steve Goldberger & the Fringe Locals
    “GUMBO DREAMS”, released in the fall of 2002, is Steve’s first album of all original “singer/songwriter” material. After thirty years of playing other writer’s songs and a lifetime of experience, he has returned to songwriting again. The songs cover the wide range of styles that have influenced him over the years resulting in a “gumbo-type” mix of roots, country-rock, blues and folk. If you had to label his music, you might be reminded of Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne, Lucinda Williams or Little Feat with some Don Henley thrown in.
    "Bits of acoustic folk, ersatz California country pop, New Orleans swamp rock, Celtic airs and raucous pub rock float up to the surface of this stew, truly an amalgam of alien parts. For all that, an infectious good humour and energetic teamwork lend this record, GUMBO DREAMS, genuine appeal." - Greg Quill, Toronto Star
    "...his new album is out and it rocks! It's called Gumbo Dreams and sounds just like its name; a great cocktail of original songs with original sounds." -Herve Oudet, "Americana in Paris" Radio Show, Paris, France

    The Niagara-on-the-Lake Rhythm Project
    Steve Goldberger & the Fringe Locals

    In early 2002 Steve released the “NIAGARA-ON-THE-LAKE RHYTHM PROJECT”, a collection of original instrumental tunes. What started out as “an all acoustic world music type of thing” evolved over time to this showcase featuring the composing talents and musicianship of Steve and his pals.
    "Steve Goldberger's subversive THE NIAGARA-ON-THE-LAKE RHYTHM PROJECT ... the sounds on this disc are beautiful free flowing instrumental illustrations of life in tourist heaven...A sort of mash up of folk, soft rock and jazz combined in the aesthetic of a jam band... get your hands on this disc and wrap your head around the sounds." - Pulse Niagara
