On August 31, 1970, Steven Robert Morris Burgess was born into an atmosphere of music that has been in his family for generations. His grandfather Morris Burgess and grandmother Loretta Burgess were folk singers and musicians in the 30’s and 40’s. Steven’s father, Robert Burgess, found his own groove in a 50’s and 60’s rock band. The roots of the Burgess’ family music grow deep, and Steven continues this legacy through his music.
Steven has taken what he has learned from his family and used it to help create his own style of relaxation music; a way to purely express his emotions and feelings when words were not enough.
The honesty of Steven’s music has captured a large audience of people craving a taste of serenity. His fan base started out locally; friends and family waiting for the opportunity to hear Steven play publicly. While Steven had always considered his music to be a private expression and hobby, he was encouraged to pursue his music more seriously by his listeners who used it for soaking music, to be played in spas and as background music.
In January 2000, Steven decided to follow the encouragement of his listeners and record his first album, ‘Rest’.
Steven now has his relaxation and meditation music played worldwide. His fan base continues to grow, as does the complexity and purity of expression in his music.
