I want my audience to feel like they’re apart of the show as much as we are.”
His influences – country, rock, Americana, and blues – give Steve’s music a fresh and exciting sound that country music fans are gravitating to! His newest sophomore album ‘Temptations’ is the results of those influences. Recorded in Nashville and co-produced by Jimmy Dulin (I Pray For You – Jaron and the Long Road to Love), the album features 10 songs about the temptations of love, alcohol, and pushing the limits of being young & wild.
