Guitarist Steve Brockmann hails from Northern Germany, and is very active in the music scene there. His latest studio offering is "Expected Errors", an 11-track totally instrumental affair. But if you think this is gonna be a bunch of endless noodling over canned tracks, THINK AGAIN! As a musician and songwriter, Steve is a model of restraint, cutting loose when needed, holding back when necessary. Sure, he can burn up the fretboard like there`s no tomorrow, but Steve`s a song guy, crafting instrumentals that are memorable and don`t require a degree in music theory to enjoy. Not an easy task, but Steve is MORE than up to the challenge, believe me! It should be noted that Steve not only wrote ALL the songs, he played all the instruments, mixed the album AND did all the artwork, as well! [wonder if he does windows, too?] Unlike other one-man bands, however, the level of quality control is VERY high and there`s no self-indulgent wankery to be found here. Doubtless a lot of time and care went into the arrangements, and it shows in every single track. It`s obvious that one of Steve`s primary influences is Brian May, as can be heard in the soaring guitar harmonies. Shades of Pink Floyd also abound; in fact, Steve`s tone and delivery remind me at times of David Gilmour`s playing on "Animals", though there`s
also high-tech Metal shredding to satisfy Shred-Heads everywhere. This guy is HARDLY a "jack of all trades, master of none"! While it`s not a technique freak`s wet dream, "Expected Errors" IS an entertaining, enjoyable and accessable album that can be appreciated by ALL music fans, which is no mean feat for an instrumental release. But in the hands of artists like Steve Brockmann, it`s all in a days work. So please visit Steve`s website and pick up his releases; we DEFINITELY need more musicians like him, and your continued support will make certain that we do! [Great job, Steve!]

Don't Sing!

Gitarre & Bass  , Germany’s leading magazine for professional guitarists and bassists, issue 01/03

The title of e-guitarist Steve Brockmann’s CD is programmatic. Don’t Sing‘ was recorded as pure instrumental album specifically (and not amazingly) focusing on guitar work. Steve, who - with one exception - not only recorded all electric and acoustic guitars but also keyboards, bass, and percussions, excels as multiinstrumentalist virtuoso. His music is a composite of 80s Metal and 70s Hardrock, even offering some quiet pop tunes in addition to the hard tracks.

"Afficionados of instrumental rock music ­ watch out! This is something for you: Steve Brockmann’s CD "Don't Sing!". He recorded almost the entire CD onhis own and reveals to be an excellent multi-instrumentalist. The range of rock covers allmost all genres, ranging from Santana-like Latin style to heavy sounds and acoustic tracks with an Irish touch. The CD is enjoyable to listen to, and it provides a good background letting go and drifting into a dream without having to concentrate on lyrics."
