Steve's musical journey started in his home town of Sheffield at 2 years old, where he was heavily influenced by his late father a devoted Evangelist, who regularly encouraged singing in the home and church.
At the age of 17, Steve moved to Birmingham, where he joined the local church choir. He practiced every Sunday for 2 hours, singing songs from gospel artist like The Winans, Fred Hammond, Daryl Colley, Kim Burrell and Donnie McClurkin, that would go on to develop his unique vocal sound and style.
He further developed his singing ability by listening to artists like Luther Vandross, Lionel Richie, Stevie Wonder, Ella Fitzgerald, George Benson and Marvin Gaye. Just recently, Steve graced the stage (at her request) with famed artist Jocelyn Brown solidifying him as a rising star.
