Prior to assembling Voodoo Blue, Steve performed in various rock/alternative bands. His musical journey began at the age of 14, when he received his first acoustic guitar. Five months later, Steve had already moved on to electric guitar and put together his first band. Polar Knights (influenced by a Scorpions tune) performed their first show at his schools spring talent show. It was then and there when Steve caught the bug and loved performing. Since then, Steve has been performing every chance he could.
Steve was introduced to SRV in the late 80s via Jeff Beck. Steve says, One of my greatest disappointments is that I never saw SRV perform live.. He was the Hendrix of my generation. I didnt really come to appreciate Stevies talent until it was too late. He was such a force, truly a monster on the guitar.
