Steve started out at a young age playing banjo and singing in a children's group called The Bunker Hillbillies. He appeared on a number of local TV shows and even appeared with some of his band mates in the East Room of the White House for President Nixon at a National Boy's Clubs of America celebration.
After graduating from that group, he realized that he needed music in his life and taught himself how to play keyboard. Pretty much a hobby for many years, in his thirties, Steve reformed and directed the children's group, The Bunker Hillbillies at the Boys and Girls Club in Charlestown for a few years. Using the same formula, Steve then formed and directed the St. Augustine Country Bumpkins in Andover for a number of years.
During this time, Steve got together to jam with some of his old friends and they realized they could put out a sound that gave birth to the rock and roll cover band, Ground F/X, who played out on the North Shore from 2001 to 2008. Still having the urge to do more, Steve joined RipChord in 2007.
