Steve is a 30 year musical veteran, a nationally recognized song writer who’s written songs recorded by Paul Brandt (Canadian Man) and Prairie Oyster (Too Bad For Me), and a tireless musical creator. His annual Christmas show plays for five sold out nights every year at Calgary’s premiere music venue, Ironwood. Steve is also celebrated for his loving nine piece tribute to Elvis Presley.
