Welcome to Owl Mountain Music
Dedicated to helping people sing their soul.
Steve Eulberg stands within the tradition of handmade, acoustic, home-grown music, giving life to old songs and tunes and songs by passing them on. He also stretches the boundaries of musical instrumentation by playing jazz, blues and bossa nova on traditional instruments.
He brings virtuosity and surprise to performance and thoughtful songwriting which utilize humor, bringing new perspectives to embrace the broken lives and tattered fringes of life and re-weave them into strands of hope.
