Steve has played bass in more originals and covers bands than he can count, spanning a huge range of musical styles over the years, from Classic Rock, Power Pop, Indie and Mod, through to Blues, Country and Americana. He also dabbles with guitar and sings a bit if pushed!
His musical influences come mainly from his mother's music collection covering some of the classic bands of the time, Small Faces, Kinks, The Yardbirds, some early trippy stuff from Fleetwood Mac and of course the ubiquitous Beatles. Listening to Small Faces “Ogdens’ Nut Gone Flake” through a good pair of headphones can't be beaten.
Steve plays an unhealthy number of Fender Precision and Dimension four and five string basses through Ampeg amplification and Barefaced cabinets.
