Steve credits the inventor of the accordion for his eventual inspiration and desperate need to take up guitar at age ten. (No offense-beautiful instrument, it is!) His six-string career started with his first public playing and singing performance in Sister Mary Jolene's sixth grade class, pounding out "If I Had a Hammer" for his excited fellow classmates. Wow, what a rush! Ever since that pivotal day, there was no turning back.
Born and raised in Downey, California (Musical birthplace of the Carpenters), Steve has opened for the Little River Band, Dave Mason, Randy Meisner (Eagles), Kenny Rankin, Richie Furay, and 38 Special. He currently performs as singer/guitarist for the headline act, "Hotel California - A Salute to the Eagles", helping to recreate the legendary sound of the Eagles and performing in major venues across the U.S. Equal to his passion for the stage is his love for creating music across all genres for film, TV, and recording artist placements, as well recording and keeping a few tunes for himself!
