When did you first start writing songs?

Probably back in the mid-80's.

Is there a song you wish you wrote?

Although it's an instrumental, I wish I could be known for writing the acoustic guitar piece Bron-Yr-Aur by Jimmy Page.

What's one fun fact about you people wouldn't know?

After playing classic rock for several years, I took up playing cello for a year and a half before studying classical guitar. I thought classical guitar was boring. Now I have a degree in classical guitar performance.

Are you more of a lyrics first or music first writer?

It depends. My instrumental songs obviously start out as music first. My songs with lyrics start out with the lyrics first.

Do you write in one specific genre or more than one?

Multi-genre: Pop, Blues, Contemporary Christian, Jazz...Whatever I'm feelin' at the moment.


With guitar as my main instrument, I write songs that range from inspirational to just plain goofy.

What Steve is saying about this Meetup Group

I always come away with great ideas on how to make my songs better, and it happens in such a way as I feel positively encouraged.
