Long Story Short: Started playing the guitar and writing songs in 1977. Recorded home albums on Cassette Tape (soon to be compiled for a collection on his Bandcamp page). Steve attended Berklee College of Music in the 80’s, and released two albums with the band Big Clock. In the early 90’s Steve moved to Minneapolis to work with his friend Michael Koppelman, forming the band Raintribe with him. Returning to Boston in the mid 1990′s, he joined forces with Dan Cantor and formed the band Hummer. In 2004 he released his first official solo CD Bedroom Rockstar to rave reviews; Miles of Music described it as “Americana, folk, classic and roots-rock, effortlessly flowing from one to the next and never at a loss for interest.” After touring England and Ireland, he released Unfortunate Son in 2005. Smother wrote of Unfortunate Son as “another notch on a belt of talented pop-rock ventures with slight Americana bends and juicy roots rock. Good stuff.” Stripping back to basics, he released Understories in 2006, an acoustic album, and in 2009 he released Long Play Record, “an impressive collection of songs” according to Americana UK. Beautiful Blood was released in 2013, produced and written by Steve and his long lost cousin Kristina Stykos. In 2015 Steve will release his next album, to be produced with Andy Plaisted.
