    If you haven't heard Steve live, you have really missed a treat. His music always makes me smile and just feel good. Steve Meckfessel started writing songs at the tender age of 13. His early days were spent playing bass guitar and singing harmony in ‘Size Five’, a popular teenage rock and roll band in Sacramento . In his college years he formed an acoustic folk duo with a close friend in Santa Cruz . Ten years ago, after two decades of musical darkness, he pulled his dust covered guitar out of the attic and began to write again, but the new songs explored themes brought on by age and maturity—songs of family secrets, of long forgotten poets, of separateness, connection, of second chances and acceptance. Steve’s first CD, ‘Twice’ was used on the television show ‘JAG’—he is finishing his second CD, ‘Under Beautiful Skies’, which is being produced by Keith Greeninger. He is a guitar player’s songwriter—his songs are distinguished by their varied voicings and unexpected chord progressions. From 2003 up until last year, he played lead guitar and sang in the Orinda based rock and roll cover band, Stone Soup. He lives in Alameda .
