In The Spotlight

Steve Obando – “Shattered Glass”

Born in Columbia, this multi-talented artist immersed himself in music from an early age. Having moved to Canada, he impressed renowned piano teachers aged 8 and at 12 he added songwriting and guitar. In 2011 he attended Berklee College Of Music, which was a musical wonderland for this artistic whiz. He released his debut single, a new version of David Gray’s “Babylon”, early 2018.

Debuting his first original song, this sumptuous ballad has a bodacious guitar riff, which is slightly reminiscent of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, but he takes the melody and makes his own ariose virtuosity flourish. With a hypnotic rhythm and vulnerable, yet vigorous vocals conveying a story about a relationship breaking beyond repair, it’s both catchy and compelling, as delicate and heart-wrenching.
