Steve Sabet / Bio

Inspired by Marty McFly and Doc's CRM-114 amplifier, Steve Sabet began to make some noise at the age of 10. With the goal of rockin' beyond some bookcases, Steve honed his craft of playing guitar that garnered praise from his hometown of Montville, NJ.

Equally at home with electric, acoustic, and classical guitar styles he enrolled at The Hartt School where he received a Bachelor of Music degree. There he studied guitar with leading professors, Richard Provost and Alan Spriestersbach and began to compose his own style of instrumental music.

Steve continued his musical studies at Florida State University where he earned a Master of Music degree and studied classical guitar with Bruce Holzman.

Coming back home to NJ with his solid musical foundation, Steve joined Jersey band favorite Darby Jones and worked with Grammy Award winner, John Seymour. His guitar textures complemented the band that help shape their album, Harmony and Dicord. This could be heard on their opening track, "Opposite Corners."

When Darby Jones disbanded, Steve performed with NYC singer-songwriters that lead to a chance encounter with They Might Be Giants drummer, Brian Doherty. This lead to many NYC shows and recording sessions with industry pro Paul Antonell.

Steve then joined popular NYC band MORE. There he co-wrote the band's lead off track on their album, Split The Difference. This band performed at favorite venues like CBGB's, Mercury Lounge, and opened up for national acts Crossfade and Patty Smyth at the Starland Ballroom.

Following MORE, Steve focused on his position as a high school music teacher where he teaches guitar and music technology. He recently received the Teacher of the Year award in his district. Additionally, he is pursuing a Doctorate degree in Music Education at Rutgers University where he specializes in music technology. He continues to study classical guitar as well with Dr. Ana Maria Rosado.

In 2012, his guitar driven instrumental album, From My Living Room will be released featuring original music written, arranged, recorded, and produced by himself. The music is moody, evocative, yet lyrical without words. Each song on this record was conceived while playing guitar on his living room couch transporting him back to why he got into music in the first place.
