Steve's R&B/neo soul music is fresh, contemporary and includes echoes of Jill Scott, Dwele, Musiq Soulchild, and Erykah Badu. His freestyle lyrics are sensual, current and have fans falling in love.
Steve was born in Midway, North Carolina. Steve was raised with music all around him. Whether it was singing in church or with family, Steve enjoyed being on stage. While performing in Edinbourgh Scotland at the young age of 17, he took his musical vision to another level. He continued his passion in college and quickly drew a fan base amongst his peers. After this, Steve started to build a reputation for being musically gifted whether through free styling on the open mic circuit, scatting at a jazz club, or performing a cappella in the streets of various cities.
His powerful story of struggle and triumph has resulted in a driven artist who is humble in his approach with a deep-seated desire to succeed. Jason Quinones, General Manager, Nuyorican Poets Café says, “Since his first performance at the Nuyorican Poets Café, Steven Frazier has been an artist to look out for, mesmerizing the audience with his smooth melodies and harmonics, it's always a pleasure seeing him perform at the venue.”
The name of his second album ‘skin2skin’ was inspired when he was in the hospital with his newborn son and he was encouraged to hold him ‘skin to skin’ to increase their bond. He knew at that moment he was holding further inspiration to succeed and that he had the title of his next project. In planning the skin2skin album preview party that was held on March 18, 2014 in New York, Steve has reached out to his fellow emerging artists and offered them the opportunity to share this night with him. He is driven to succeed while finding a way to enable support for others around him.
Since New York Steve has been working daily in the studio to bring his inspiration and passion to life in new music for his fans. He has since been nominated for two Carolina Music Awards.
Steve’s vision is to change the industry with his sound. “It is a different sound. I know that, my fans know that and respect that. I want to open the door for others with a different sound.”
Steve’s positive outlook and his undeterred drive is an inspiration for artists. “The reason I am breathing is to make music. The best is yet to come.”
