Steve began singing and acting at a young age. At 14, he was gifted a guitar and was writing songs soon after. By age 18, he had recorded two albums out of his bedroom, an EP out of a basement and racked up over 125,000 streams for his music and hundreds of album sales. His early efforts were inspired by artists like Jason Mraz and Ben Folds.
He started to find his soulful pop style while studying music at Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio. Many hours spent singing in choirs, studying classical piano and Bossa Nova guitar techniques and even composing music for choir and string orchestra helped give Steve’s music its eclectic sound. Mraz and Folds continued to have a strong influence on his music, but new artists such as Eric Hutchinson and Regina Spektor and classic greats like Brian Wilson and Stevie Wonder were added to the mix.
After graduating in 2011, Steve moved back to the Indianapolis, Indiana area and began making a name for himself as a singer/songwriter on the local scene. On July 30th 2016, Steve released his debut full length album "Let's Begin" with a full band performance at The Hi-Fi in Indy's trendy Fountain Square district. Produced by Jonathan Class, the album rose to #3 on the NoiseTrade singer/songwriter charts. Singles off the album garnered FM radio and internet radio play soon after, and music blogs such as Purple Melon Music, Abduction Radiation and SOM Magazine helped spread Steve's music beyond his local audience. "Let's Begin" found a particularly receptive audience on YouTube, where popular music channels like AlexrainbirdMusic, Sounds New/Sounds Good, Funspear and Curved Flow helped Steve's music gain hundreds of thousands of streams.
In the Fall of 2016, Steve opened for Marc Broussard to kick off his 5-state midwest solo tour in support of "Let's Begin." More touring, new music and full band club shows are planned for 2017.
