Steve first picked up the guitar and started learning a couple of chords at age 7. By 7th grade in school, he was playing numerous wedding and keg party’s with his dad’s band and also had an original band called "The Sock Monkeys!"
At 15, he won first place in the “Extreme Guitar Challenge” at Mars Music in Orlando, competing onstage with guitarist from all over the state of FL. After high school, he joined a local gigging band called “Bong Water Taffy” and was playing at local bars and clubs in Orlando and Cocoa Beach 4 nights a week, sometimes 2 gigs a night. The band had a great blend of funk, rock, metal and R&B. They eventually recorded a full length album at Full Sail Recording Arts, and did two interviews and live performances for Real Rock 104.1.
On his 19th birthday, he headed to Los Angeles to join “Turbulence.” They had shows lined up at “The Whisky” and “The Roxy."
After a year, Steve returned to FL and started writing and recording on his own in his dads studio. Those songs turned out to be on his solo album debut. From there he joined various cover bands and on his time off made his own home studio and wrote and recorded 40+ original songs. Catch him playing weekly in the FL area with The Psycho Magnets!
