The new album “Hand. Cannot. Erase” is now available to pre-order in 4 different formats. The album follows the critical and commercial success of 2013’s ‘The Raven That Refused To Sing’ (Germany #3, UK# 28) and an international run of sold-out shows, including London’s prestigious Royal Albert Hall.
Joining Steven on the album is Guthrie Govan (guitar), Adam Holzman (keyboards), Nick Beggs (bass / stick), and Marco Minneman (drums) – all part of the world-class band that graced The Raven and the 2013/2014 world tours. ‘Hand. Cannot. Erase.’ was recorded in September 2014 at the renowned Air Studios in London.
