He may not have been nominated as a CMA New Artist of the Year, but Steve Moakler is the rising artist to watch. The singer-songwriter’s latest album Steel Town turned heads of country fans and critics alike with it’s optimism, soul, and authentic lyrics. Take, for example his recently recorded acoustic version of “Suitcase,” his breakout track from Steel Town. It will bring a smile to the face of the most stubborn critic.
Moakler and his band crowded into a small room to record “Suitcase”. It is infectious. Try to go the rest of the day without humming the song to yourself. That’s how his songs work: you want them to stick in your head.
Watch out 2018, Moakler is coming.
