His newest album, “I Walk Alone,” is a collection of songs that Blane wrote and produced. He played all the instruments, recorded, mixed and mastered everything.

Blane says, “It’s been cathartic. It’s the closest I’ve come to getting what I really heard in my head. “I Walk Alone” is an album comprised 60’s Rock & Roll, jazz tinged story songs. And I think I sound like an old Elvis, Orbison, Waits Singer-Songwriter. Not too shabby at all! I’m very excited and I am touring to support the release.”

The Huffington Post wrote, “Stylistically, Blane fits in the Americana category. But there’s more going on in his music than simply Americana. There’s a pop influence in there, along with a 1950’s rock vibe that gives his sound a unique signature. It’s much different from the usual run-of-the-mill stuff most bands turn out today."

Of Blane’s previous recent album “So New York,” Seattle PI wrote, "So New York is grand! The album is full of vintage jazz/pop aromas giving off tantalizing wisps of elusive familiarity similar to the heady music of the '40s and '50s. Steven Blane's voice is deliciously deluxe, full of lush tones."

“So New York," is a collection of original songs about NYC- the city he loves so much!

Prior to that Steven produced an album entitled "Motel Blue." That album was recorded in Nashville and Produced by Blane. It features amazing Rachel Horter on many of the songs, fantabulous Fiddler Ross Holmes, Bass Player Kevin Hailey and Drummer Frank Levatino. “I’m so proud of that album. It’s just so real- organic- everything done in one take.”

Prior to that, Steven released four other albums. "I Confess" was produced by White Heart core member Billy Smiley and recorded in Nashville, and his Lake Worth, Florida recorded-in-a-shed album, "The Shed Sessions" received excellent reviews and airplay on Radio Stations across the country.

As a young boy in Jersey City, his grandma stood him on a table at a Knights of Pythias Talent Show.  Singing “Delilah,”  Tom Jones style, in front of a supportive audience left a profound effect on Steven. Years later, when college was over, he plotted his escape to NYC.  Once there, he was cast in a Broadway Show as a guitar playing gypsy. (He still has his Actor's Equity and SAG cards :-)

He lived on 8th Street in the Village in NYC and played gigs at bars. He wrote an Off-Off Broadway Rock Opera and had one of his songs performed on the original "Star Search." Steven decided to ply his trade as a singer-songwriter in Nashville. So he loaded up his blue VW bug (which was missing pieces of it's floor) and headed down the road from NYC. 100 miles later he turned around, struggled as an artist for a few more years, then married the love of his life and became an audio-book producer.

Steven writes and performs in the Americana-Jazz-Rock genres and his songs and lyrics reflect his musings on relationships, faith, love and fantasy.

Steven plays guitar, piano and ukulele and performs as a solo artist or with The Steven Blane Band. He plays regularly at venues in NYC including Shine, Silvana, Pianos, Bowery Electric, Kopi, Kopi, Rockwood as well as in South Florida at venues such as Rudy’s Pub and Common Grounds. 

Steven is also a Cantor and a Rabbi. Here is a link to recordings of his High Holiday Services at The Bitter End in NYC.

Steven Blane is a singer-songwriter in the Americana-Jazz genres. His style incorporates a pop influence along with a 1950’s rock vibe that gives his sound a unique signature.

Randy Radic, Huffington Post


"True to the indie music spirit, Steven has been very active in recording his craft. His growing anthology includes 2014’s Gonna Light the Lights Tonight (single), 2015’s Taboo, and 2016’s The Best of Steven Blane (So Far), and I ConfessHis most recent effort, The Shed Sessions (feat. Luba Dvorak & Kevin Hailey), was quite literally recorded in a shed in Lake Worth, Florida, with nothing more than two mics and the players themselves—no overdubbing. A situation this minimal can either result in disaster, or pure magic. In Blane’s case:  Abracadabra."

The Ark Of Music


"Now in his 60’s, Steven Blane is still a practicing singer-songwriter in the NYC music and arts scene. Americana is considered his main genre but he adds elements from folk, pop, and 1950’s rock to create a sound that is quite unique. 

Together with The Steven Blaine Band, this past May saw the release of The Shed Sessions. The 10 track record was recorded fully in a shed in Lake Worth, Florida. The album opens with the folk-style storytelling of “Any Kind Of Fool”. Even as a solely acoustic song, there is an electric feel that pulses through the track. Blaine’s vocals create that energy that makes your ears perk up and pay attention."

Indie Band Guru


"Embracing his acoustic guitar and putting his masterful song crafting abilities on display, Steven Blane delivers an Americana/Folk sound with plenty of nuances including hints of pop, 1950s rock n roll vibes, and a soulful, powerful voice that is guaranteed to grab your attention as Steven starts to sing."

Middle Tennessee Music


"Steven Blane‘s LP of Jazzy, Swingish, and Bluesy collection of tracks titled The Best of Steven Blane (So Far) is a treat for the New Yorker’s soul in ways that almost can’t be fully described. Blane delivers you that same iconic sound in the league of artists that could be comprised of Sinatra, Bennett, and a riffy Johnny Cash vibe as well. Every song on this album has a smooth, eclectic, and soothing sensibility…no matter where you come from. He has a sound that has class, dynamic musicianship, and innovative measures that are always present throughout every track. The sound is versatile and diverse. And once you take a listen to Steven Blane yourself, he’ll find his way to your heart unconditionally. Whether you expect it or not."

Artist Reach


Singer-Songwriter, Steven Blane, returns with the release of his new album, So New York, switching his usual Americana style for a jazzy sound. The album is a collection of ten original love songs to New York City, including his single "Central Park". Steven has never shied away from exploring genres. In the past, he delved deeply into Americana with the release of The Shed Sessions and Motel Blue. But this time he ventures back into jazz like he did in his first album, Kill Me Nice. Steven's style flourishes on this record with the combination of jazzy pop and 1950's rock. Together they give his sound a unique signature. Seattle PI praised the album and Steven's artistry proclaiming , "So New York is grand! The album is full of vintage jazz/pop aromas giving off tantalizing wisps of elusive familiarity similar to the heady music of the '40s and '50s. Steven Blane's voice is deliciously deluxe, full of lush tones."
