Singer-songwriter Stephen Lee Veal will be using the pristine listening room environment of The Peoples Room of Mobile to celebrate the release of his album “No Lifeguard by the Gene Pool.” Veal has the perfect formula for his country sound, which he successfully captured with this album. His acoustic guitar portrays a spectrum of emotions ranging from sweet warmth to bright lightheartedness.
This seasoned composer’s vocals are riddled with a profound baritone that embraces each lyric. While on the subject of lyrics, Veal completes his songwriting trinity with line after line of clever wordplay and insightful observations. The album’s title track and “Pot Liquor” are two tracks that lyrically thrive through Veal’s unique eye.
Looking at his background, Veal’s songwriting style is something that has been brewing steadily since childhood. His early years in Oklahoma echoed with the sounds of gospel and the country and Western sounds that are popular in the region. After moving to the Gulf Coast, Veal added a little bit of sand and saltwater to his style. Since then, he has hosted and participated in a number of songwriter rounds from Music City to the Gulf of Mexico. Veal’s performance at The Peoples Room will be a chance for the audience to delve deeper into this experienced songwriter’s life and music.
