Photos highlights from Stephen Lee Veal’s live performance at The Mary C. O’Keefe Cultural Arts Center in Ocean Springs, MS as part of the Mississippi Songwriters Alliance’s “Songs & Stories Concert Series” (Thur. May 18, 2023). Stephen Lee Veal’s No Lifeguard By the Gene Pool was named one the Top Ten Albums of 2020 at The Southland Music Line. A year later in 2021, his True Stories and Other Lies was named one our year’s Top Ten albums, too.
Here is what some said about Stephen Lee Veal’s No Lifeguard By the Gene Pool:
“Stephen Lee Veal has his own, distinctive style that draws the listener into the song, so much so that you find yourself seeing the images he writes about, playing like little movies in your head. This new release hits that very same mark, and then some. It’s quite simply, a great CD filled with great songs and great music.” — Karen E. Reynolds, 2019 E TN Writers Hall Of Fame Songwriting Inductee. Host/Program Dir. Writers Block
“The songs, the pickers, production and mix are all first class. Stephen Lee Veal has a real talent for coming up with unusual ideas and then writing them to the wall.” — Jim McBride, 2019 Nashville Songwriters Hall Of Fame Inductee, CMA Song of the year (Chattahoochee) Award Winning, Grammy Nominated Songwriter
“Before even listening to the first note of music, the title “No Lifeguard by the Gene Pool” quickly grabs your attention. Veal’s genuine talent and authenticity is showcased on his latest album, led by his remarkable ability for writing a song. This cleverly titled album is a “beginning to end” enjoyment for the listener featuring great songs such as “Poison Kisses”, “Can’t Hurt Steel”, “Pot Liquor”. and more. The entire collection is a pleasure to listen to…much like Stephen, himself.” — Johnny Cole, Southland Music Line
