Waiting for Aidan


Produced by: Dave Zeglinski, Steve Bell

Released: 2001


On of the most produced albums I’ve recorded, Waiting For Aidan is a combination of Ecclesiastes-like reflections and celebration of good gifts gratefully received. The title track is an upbeat instrumental in honor of the arrival of a long-awaited child, born to my business partner Dave Zeglinski and his wife Kim. We were able to get some folks to play on this album that we had long admired from afar – Phil Keaggy, Sam Bush, Kevin Breit, and to work with an overall caliber of musicians that was very high. It was a complex but satisfying project.

Reviewed by Steve Best / Cross Rhythms UK / December 1, 2004 – From three years ago comes this absolute gem from the awesomely talented guitarist cum singer/songwriter. Things get off to a spectacular start with the fabulous acapella “Eventide” (reprised at the album’s end on acoustic guitar) – a truly breathtaking opener. Steve’s acoustic guitar talents are never far from the surface, and he is joined by a fine array of support musicians including Chapman stick expert and label mate Fergus Marsh, along with Phil Keaggy who contributes some delicious electric guitar parts on a couple of selections – most notably on “Jesus My Glory”. Steve draws on a range of lyrical inspirations, including ancient prayers and psalms, and throughout this is supported by wonderful arrangements and fine sensitive performances. In all, utterly wonderful.
