Cross two famous guys named Brooks - Garth and Mel - and you get Austin singer-songwriter Steve Brooks. A classic Texas troubadour who tells stories of humor, heartbreak and cracker-barrel philosophy, his songs have been recorded by more than a dozen Americana artists, like Slaid Cleaves, Christine Albert and Russell Crowe. They include the Austin classic “One Good Year.” He wrote a song-a-week for Jim Hightower's nationally-syndicated radio show and appeared on TV’s “I’ve Got a Secret” as six-time World Pun Champion. He’s also a nationally-known spiritual speaker who’s presented services at more than 40 Unity and Unitarian churches. On top of his solo career, Steve tours as a member of the legendary ‘60s folk trio The Limeliters. Writes Stave Magazine, “He is simply the most clever man you'll hear with a guitar.”
Steve is a versatile performer, appearing anywhere from house concerts to bars, wineries and performing arts centers. Depending on the venue and the audience, he can perform his original songs or mix in classic folk, country and rock covers. He can appear solo, duo or with a band.
