Biography

Steven Grossman (b. 1952, d. 1991 San Francisco) was a singer-songwriter from the early 1970s whose debut (and only) album Caravan Tonight (1974) is distinguished as being the first album dealing with openly gay themes and subject matter to be released on a major label (Mercury Records). Grossman was heavily influenced by Joni Mitchell and the album is very much in the style of singer-songwriter Cat Stevens, as opposed to the then-current glam Bowiesque fashion of openly gay artists such as Jobriath. Performers on the album included Eric Weissberg, best known for his recording "Dueling Banjos" for the 1972 movie "Deliverance".

Grossman died in 1991 of an AIDS-related illness. Caravan Tonight has yet to be released on CD although a cover version of the title track by model and occasional singer Twiggy has. Singer songwriter Mark Weigle created a duet of "Out" with Steven Grossman on his "Out of the Loop" CD in 2002.
