Steve literally grew up working and performing in the honky tonks of West Texas. His influences are the country, blues and rock music of that region by great artists such as Waylon Jennings, Joe Ely and Buddy Holly.
Steve eventually made his way to Santa Fe in the early ’90s. Since 2016 he resides in Southwestern Montana. He performs his own style and blend of straight-ahead, no-nonsense traditional music both as a solo artist and as a founding member of The Buffalo Nickel Band.
