By Dan MacIntosh Over a groove that includes guitar, bass, and drums with saxophone coloring, the lyric to "Baby Steps" talks about taking small paces when getting past a tough time in life. The vocal is a little bit spoken, which may remind you of Lou Reed. Except in this case, the singing is on key. There is also a fine female harmony. It's a nice, sparse, hopeful song. - Indie-music.com



Randy Covey, founding member of Waoka, has been playing and singing for over 30 years, starting in folk duos and acoustic sets. Influences include Neil Young, Ben Harper, Bob Dylan, Pink Floyd, Robert Plant, and the Jayhawks. He met his wife Allyson in a local coffee house playing music and so it began.
