As a musician, it is my goal to inspire, entertain and make my audience forget the stresses that come with everyday life to feel better whenever my work is heard. I share my life experiences in a way that anyone can apply the lyrics and music to events in their life. Sometimes people think they may be the only ones who have gone through something, but the message I want to spread is that there is always someone who has gone through a hard time and that there are always ways to get through it. I want my music to be encouraging all while I stay true to my hard rock roots.

Steve has been playing and writing music since he was 12 years old. In 2011 he started recording his first official demos. In 2012 he released his first track to help raise money for a family to help aid in the search for their missing daughter. With this first official release Steve has made it his mission to use his music to help others through connection and charity events. In pursuit of his passion for music, Steve decided to also take the avenue of Audio Production in order to help others bring to life their musical creations. He completed his Master Certificate in Audio Production at Berklee College of Music in the summer of 2014 and is currently working towards his Bachelor’s degree in that field. In 2014 Steve became the drummer of a local cover band named “Nobodyz Business” to entertain local audiences while he builds his own musical destiny as an independent artist with his own original music. Early 2016, Steve is set to release his first self-produced album “Elements of Life”. The journey is only just beginning as he pursues his passion to use his music to help others get through the daily struggles of life.
