The bubbling stream of songwriting and recording creativity that began for Steve Kimock with Last Danger of Frost and progressed through sessions with John Morgan Kimock and Leslie Mendelson on Satellite City shows no signs of quitting. Next up is a single called “While We Wait”— a sumptuous, elegant, romantic instrumental, beautiful as only KIMOCK (Steve on lap steel, guitar, and (!) piano, Spencer Murphy on bass, John Morgan Kimock on drums, kalimba, piano, and synthesizers) can make it. Written by Steve and produced by John Morgan, it’s quite simply gorgeous—all the more remarkable because the initial source of the song was the bittersweet joy Steve experienced in visiting with a friend who didn’t have much time left.
Steve’s playing creates a unique space, one not conventionally occupied by the average mind. As John Morgan put it, “You cannot identify what you are hearing, which is really exciting to me. I try to run with the ‘UFO’ vibes and let that creep into the production.” Commenting on John’s production work, Steve replied, “I don’t know how he does it. He takes pieces I’ve done and creates something new…his process is fascinating.” The other-worldly magic of Steve’s guitar meets its match with John Morgan’s studio alchemy.
"The feeling inside this tune is patience, life, a prerequisite to waiting.” - Steve Kimock
