As part of a band or session work, Steve's ROCK-SOLID groove & extensive experience of International tours, Studio recordings & TV
promo has led him to play all over the world...
Born in Norfolk (UK), a Xmas present of an 'Argos' toy drum kit, Steve's mum & dad noticed something was going on...
In 1980, rock band Genesis came to the seaside town of Great Yarmouth on tour (not on holiday!). In the audience that night was a 9 year old Steve (his Dad & Uncle Roger)...after seeing Phil & Chester's drum solo little Steve left the venue with ringing ear's & "Dad, I wanna do that!" in his heart & soul.
Forward to 2010, now residing in the music capital of the world, Liverpool - Steve's ears are STILL ringing & he's doing it !
Touring & recording with ANNIE LENNOX, JEFF BECK, SUGABABES & ANASTACIA have raised Steve's game with Pop/Rock royalty...
