I I sing and play guitar
Which means that I live in a total fantasy world
with unrealistic expectations and delusions of adequacy.
Thank you for understanding
I don't just sing the songs, I give them feeling and meaning, and my guitar adds just the perfect accompaniment to make the songs come alive.
For many years as a solo singer/guitarist, I’ve performed an eclectic mix of classic folk/rock at various venues, special events, conventions, weddings, and other such things throughout the twin cities area.
I have a strong tenor voice with a wide vocal range, both tonally and stylistically, and am self-taught on acoustic 12 string, acoustic 6 string, classical, and electric guitars.
I have a passion for performing classic songs that have stood the test of time and evoke a good feeling that the audience can relate to.
Through the years I've been lead singer, guitarist, bass player, and percussionist in a few rock and roll dance bands around the Twin Cities.
I also sing in a 100+ voice choir, and a male gospel quartet.
"Steve is a really awesome musician who should be playing all over our scene! Great song choices, and always a pleasure to watch. Come help him continue to grow his presence!"
