Steve Van Zandt goes by Solar Steve when he’s writing songs and performing with the Banana Slug String Band. The group’s based in Santa Cruz, California, and they make music about science and conservation. Van Zandt says, “You know, song writing is a mysterious thing. Who knows where it comes from? As a songwriter, you net the songs. They’re already out there, and you throw the net, and you catch ’em.”
In this episode of Ocean Gazing, we’ll talk with the band, hear some of the music on their latest CD that just won the Parents Choice Award, and I’ll tell you about something special that’s just happened to Ocean Gazing. Have a listen.
Thanks to Will Kahn.
