Guitar and Vocals


Steve's mum had sung for the troops and his uncle played boogie-woogie piano so music had always been a part of his life. However his school band split due to 'musical differences' before Chris and James were even twinkles in their fathers' eyes and while there was always a guitar within reach, Steve was reconciled to being just another bedroom player. Friend and neighbour Chris had other ideas however and after much cajoling, persuaded Steve to join him for a duo outing in their local pub. This collaboration continued for a year or so, taking in a Beatles tribute band complete with wigs (and Nick on bass), then a soul band (with a never fully-realised brass section) and eventually gelling as KTO with the recruitment of Bob in 2003. The rest as they say, is history and rather to his surprise, Steve did get to play in a rock band after all.
