What you do it fo? This is the question Steph Simon has been asking himself as the time to the premiere of his Moviementary (movie documentary) “Live From the Tisdale” draws closer. A question that the movie tries to give insight into just how difficult an answer this is. The moviementary centers around Steph Simon’s live performance titled “Live From the Tisdale” which you can find my review here. Also accompaning Steph is his band The Rowlands, which the name of the band is a story within itself that is discussed a little in the moviementary.
But also depicted is the struggle that Steph Simon has had between doing something that he loves and doing what he has to do to provide, which is are topics that have been heard throughout his catalog and the album "Live From the Tisdale" as well. For instance on his track ‘Quarterbacking’ from his "Out to Eat" mixtape Steph touches on the subject of having the whole city on his back win, lose, or draw. And for Steph being seemingly the face of the franchise for Tulsa has been filled with the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. But this isn’t the only time Steph Simon has touched on this battle between greatness and providing as seen on the "Live From the Tisdale" album on tracks like ‘Longevity’, ‘D1 Dreams’, 'We On', and of course the original title track ‘Visions’ where he makes it clear he wants to be mentioned in the conversation of greatness. You know, barbershop debatin. So as the trailer plays and Buddy Rod asks Steph the question “Who is Steph Simon?” It's clear from the expression on his face that this that answer is going to take longer than the 1 minute trailer and more than one drink. Go check out his moviementary and see how he has answers this question.
