Delicate Steve is the creation of the New Jersey-based songwriter Steve Marion.  Marion had previously recorded in some of his friend’s bands and he realized one day that he had enough equipment lying around his home studio that he could record his own album.  What he created sounds like a mixture of Animal Collective’s dense experimentation with African influences that sound much like the Dirty Projectors and Vampire Weekend.  By mixing in layers of keyboards and percussion with breezy, Dobro-style slide guitar, Marion released his first experimental pop album, “Wondervisions,” in 2011 on David Byrne’s Luaka Bop label.  In 2012, Marion released his second album, “Positive Force.”

His experimental music is unique to listen to and excessively breezy and laid-back.  Check out some of his biggest hits below.
