Listen: Christian Lopez on Mountain Stage

Nov 15, 2018

This week's Song of the Week comes from Martinsburg, W.Va's Christian Lopez, recorded in Morgantown with WVU Arts & Entertainment.

Lopez was inspired to write "Steel On The Water" after entertaining 5,000 sailors aboard a United States aircraft carrier from Pearl Harbor to San Diego. The song appears on Lopez' 2017 album Red Arrow.

"With the sea in his blood and tears in his eyes/ May the ocean rock you to sleep tonight."

You can hear Lopez' entire set, plus performances from Drew Holcomb & the Neighbors, Andrew Combs, Lost Bayou Ramblers and Peter Mulvey, on this week's episode of Mountain Stage with Larry Groce.
