Steve Elliott and Lucie Walker could change their names to "Leather and Lace" with the wonderful sound their contrasting voices create when blended together. Steve's earthy voice is the perfect compliment to Lucie's soft and sultry vocals. Together, they make a song come to life.

Steve hails from Vancouver, B.C. and has been a musician since the
age of 5. When he was 10, he picked up the banjo, at 14, the guitar and at 16 he was writing and performing with his own group. His first Top 40 writing success came with Jamie Donald's version of "You're The Only One." No stranger to the music buisness, Steve has had his music recorded by artists such as B.C. Country Music's Entertainer of the Year, Bing Armstrong, 'Loverboy' rocker, Paul Dean, and Nashville country star, Ricky Van Shelton.

A French girl from Quebec, Lucie moved with her family to Ontario when she was 8. At age 12, she was accepted into music school where she sang with the award-winning St. Peter's choir. It was there that she became inspired to write songs. She won a singing contest at 19, which gave her the boost she needed to join a band and hit the road!

Lucie is the main vocalist on most of the songs and Steve sings lead on three of the ten songs, plays lead guitar on all songs and wrote eight of the songs on the album.  Lucie also has her penmanship involved with the two songs that she wrote. Altogether, Steve and Lucie have created one dynamic duo and an impressive first album in "Straight Up".

Rather than use their names for their website domain, they chose to describe their music instead, calling it "rockin country blues dot com". That covers the biggest part of it as there is no one classification for Steve and Lucie's styles (and yes, I meant that in the plural sense). They go from the deepest country roots ("Borderline") to a rockin' fever of honky tonk ("Tumblin' Down") and finally meld into country blues ("The Truth In Your Eyes") that is nothing short of hit material. There's no one nitch to place them but to say they are country covering the gambit of Americana, country, rock and blues. Hence the title of their domain which I found very interesting, then understood completely when I heard their music.

The muscians who graced this work of art are first rate and are worthy of playing in any studio on any album. Their expertise was more than a compliment to Steve's and Lucie's singing, they were all so in sync it's as if they were one. They certainly deserve to have their credits involved for their wonderful work... artists one and all.

Another treat is that the CD liner is a small booklet filled with all the credits, photos of everyone as well as the lyrics to all ten songs. This entire creation makes for a very beautiful package of talent.

The bottom line is, somewhere along the line, Steve Elliottt and Lucie Walker came together to make music. I can only believe that it was meant to be. Their sound is unlike any other, their talents, respectively combined, know no boundries. With it's broad-based appeal, "Straight Up" is one of those albums that will enrich any music lover's collection.
