“To enjoy the new CD Mosaics and Murmurations is like suddenly being transported to beautiful haunted nights of Malaga or, better yet, it’s like a musical portrait of the Spanish soul”
Rim Of The Well
“Rim of The Well is some of the best music I’ve heard in my life….passionate, precise, and playful….a deeply inspiring and pleasurable listening experience”
Shine & Rise; Music for banjola and mandolin
Movimientos; Compositions for Two Guitars & Percussion
“I am rarely as impressed as I am right now, listening to Steve Mullin’s Movimientos … through and through one of the most exquisite journeys I’ve been on musically” Chris K. Online review—mile high music store.
Ojaleo(Flamenco, Balkan and Middle Eastern Ensemble Fusion)R. Orozco in riff magazine states “Flamenco has its roots in gypsy traditions, and has been influenced by people of southern Europe and N. Africa. I don’t know of any artist that has captured those roots and influences as well as Steve Mullins.”
Agua Y Sombra: Songs From the Spanish Muse(for guitar, voice, cello, and percussion)“Highly inventive and involving…romantic and surrealistic…entirely unique.”(Gretchen Beal, CU Music Professor in a review of Agua y Sombra)
Sandstone Seasons – “This CD (and the 4-movement title work) was commissioned by the city of Longmont for the opening of Sandstone Park.
