In 1978, just months after arriving in the big city, Forbert signed his first record deal withCBS Records. His debut album, Alive On Arrival, showcased his distinctive musicalityand became one of the year’s most acclaimed albums. After being compared to folk based
stars like Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan, Forbert still managed to forge his own, more modern path with his hit sophomore record Jackrabbit Slim. The highlight of the album was the #11 Billboard hit “Romeo’s Tune”: an upbeat song with timeless lyrics
sweetened by a poetic sensibility, which has since become Steve’s signature style. Thirty-plus years later, he’s still writing acclaimed songs and has released 14 studio albums, including a Grammy-nominated tribute to another Mississippi legend, Jimmie
Rodgers.

Over With You, Steve Forbert’s first studio album in three years, is a focused song cycle featuring an earnest account of the often-mixed emotions involved in personal relationships. Produced by Grammy Award-winner Chris Goldsmith (who has worked with Ben Harper, the Blind Boys of Alabama, Big Head Todd and the Monsters, Ruthie Foster and Charlie Musselwhite).
