DELICATE STEVE, DANA BUOY
(Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi) Using his guitar in awesomely unique ways instead of his voice, Delicate Steve coaxes the strings of his Telecaster into telling stories full of positive vibes and enchanting soundscapes. Backed by an orchestra of ambient synth, there's a powerful force at work here that belies the term "delicate." And by all accounts his live show is not to be missed. WM. STEVEN HUMPHREY
