Born May 4, 1987 and raised in the outlying suburbs of Detroit, Steve's interest in music began early on. Exposed to music constantly by not only his family, but also friends and neighbors, he began wanting to play music by the age of 5. Although taking interest at such an early age, he did not actually begin playing until his teens, when his parents moved to Port Huron, and he took up guitar as an elective in high school.
After a few years of practice and jamming with other learning musicians, Steve helped form his first band with now co-founding Gasoline Gypsies member, Caleb Malooley. Steve picked up the bass out of necessity, as their band already had two guitarists, and it’s been his main instrument ever since. After several bands and a few more years of honing skills, Steve helped form the first lineup of the Gypsies in 2009.
