The guitar, and music in general have been a passion since 1968, when I was given my Grandfather's Gibson L-1 Archtop Acoustic, which I still cherish.
I'm a life long resident of the New York / New Jersey area, where I attended William Paterson University, studying Music and Business.
Teaching, consulting, recording, producing, and audio / visual system design. are all skill sets. I love variety.
These skills allow me to work with, or consult for a wide array of artists which include: George Benson, Pastor Andre Crouch, Al DiMeola, Jimmy Vivino of "The Tonight Show" / "Conan", Stevie Wonder, Bernard "Pretty" Purdie, Nashville’s Brent Mason, Joe Satriani, Johnny A, Robert Randolph, Ace Frehley, Brad Whitford, Chris Parker, Blues Legend Hubert Sumlin, Lou Pallo, Richie Cannata, Bruce Springsteen, Chuck Mangione, Steve Howe of “Yes”, and Les Paul.
My relationship with Les Paul is what I am most proud of. Les developed the Solidbody Electric Guitar, and the foundations of today's recording and music technology. He consulted with me often on new developments.
Les also hired me to mix his Front of House sound at New York's Iridium Club, located in Times Square saying; "Steve, you gave me some of the best mixes ever". As a guitarist, I joined Les onstage several times. He is truly missed.
Currently, I have been working with his son Rusty, in continuing the Les Paul Legacy.
