Second Hand Sin
Second Hand Sin is a solid effort from Stevie T, a talented folk- alternative-country rocker who follows in the footsteps of artists such as Steve Earle and Robert Earl Keene. As you would expect from music of this genre, his songs are introspective and focus on hard times that result from a life scarred by mistakes and misfortune. On "Highway's Made to Run," he sings about giving up his guitar for a needle and a spoon. I, for one, am glad to see he put the junk aside and decided to try his hand at playing music once again.
