"One of my fondest memories is playing cowbell with a rock band in college, " Steve says, while stealing another peanut butter cookie and turning his amp up to 11. With a wink, he concludes "Life is so uncertain."
Since playing piano at a young age, performing with the Shreveport Symphony at age 11, singing with his mom in the car on long family vacations, and then playing drums in bands in high school and college, Steve has never been without some musical outlet. He later wrote and recorded his first rock-jazz in strumental single while in Nashville with a group of Belmont University students (including full rhythm section, mandolin, steel guitar, and 6 back-up vocalists), then he went on to perform with a show choir in Hilton Head Island, SC.
He found a regular home on Sunday mornings, leading worship with a contemporary band, Sodium Globe, in the Tampa Bay area, and continued to write and record original music, inspired by stories of his own family and friends, and the struggles of others in his life.
