Growing up on the south side of Chicago, the blues comes naturally to Steve Hofer. And studying music with instructors from all over the world has broadened those roots into a rich diversity that provide natural authenticity to his music. While the debut single All Alone on Christmas Eve is dripping with the blues, the rollicking finale is a nod to the power of the human spirit and Steve’s broad range of music influences.
Extensive studies that range from jazz drum set at The Chicago Conservatory of Music to years of
African, Cuban, Brazilian and Taiko drumming, piano and guitar, have provided a well informed ear for musical guidance. Being an instructor and musical director of Sacramento’s Las Manos Locas has contributed to a joy of performance and connecting with the audience.
