"It's refreshing to hear a singer-songwriter from Brooklyn who's actually from Brooklyn… Steel and Salt is nothing if not a love song to New York City. You'll have to forgive me if it twanged a few of my heartstrings. "Brooklyn In the Rain" is a true ode to Brooklyn – it's not about chasing dreams, making it big, or hanging out on Bedford Avenue (ugh) until the sun comes up. This is an album about home. Whether you're from my home or not. In "Movie Queen," Solebello sings that "We will never be celebrities." While that's probably not a bad thing, it would also be a shame to let this album fade into obscurity."
