Pop Singer to Bring 'Sweet' Music to BC
“You're sweet, like I can’t deny,” are the opening lyrics of Steve Moakler’s first full-length album, “All the Faint Lights.” Those same words can be spoken about the music that this Pittsburgh native has been making for the past five years, the same music he’ll be bringing to Bluefield College for a live performance in BC’s Quick Shott Café Coffeehouse, Thursday, December 6 at 7:30 p.m.

Pop singer/songwriter Steve Moakler will bring his 'sweet' music to Bluefield College for a Coffeehouse, Thursday, December 6 at 7:30 p.m.
Open to the public, Moakler’s Coffeehouse show is designed to promote not only the sweet lyrics of all his music, but his newest full-length album released in 2001, “Watching Time Run,” a follow up to “All the Faint Lights,” which had two songs tabbed for the motion picture soundtrack “October Baby.”
Having previously released two EPs, “Like I Mean It” in 2008 and “The Weight of Words” in 2007, Moakler has proven himself to be a master pop craftsman, according to critics. His music is artistic, yet accessible with sweet melodies and moving narratives that stick in your head like happy memories.
“I love being a part of the singer/songwriter tradition, because it’s timeless, authentic, and vulnerable,” said Moakler, who now calls Nashville, Tennessee, home. “The connection is personal, and my goal is to use that connection to point towards truth.”
Labeled one of the best of a new generation of pop-rock songwriters, Moakler has been writing songs since he was 14 years old, and now at age 23 his lyrics and melodies are far more maturethan his age.
