Here’s more about Steven.

* He grew up in Little Rock, Ark., where his father was a studio engineer and brought him up on the music of James Taylor and Jim Croce, according to his bio on Major Bob Music.

* His musical taste was also influenced by bands like Soundgarden and Rage Against the Machine, and he headed to L.A. after college.

* He enjoyed success there as a songwriter. In 2007, Celine Dion recorded a song he co-wrote called “This Time.” In 2009, Michael Bolton recorded another of his co-writes, “What You’re Doing to Me.”

* Around the same time, Steven and friends formed an L.A.-based alternative rock band called Satellite.

* Satellite released an EP called “Ring the Bells” in 2013 and an album called “Calling Birds.” The 2012 music video to their song “Say the Words” has more than 1.5 million views on YouTube.

* Steven signed a publishing deal with Disney Music in 2014 and one with Major Bob in 2017.

* He’s landed cuts with several country artists, including Tim McGraw, Parmalee, the Eli Young Band, Jimmie Allen and Joe Nicols, according to his bio on Major Bob’s website.

* Steven describes himself as “professionally emotional” on Instagram, and that bio elaborates, saying he “aims to write songs that make people feel more in touch with who they really are.”

* He has one recent solo release, a March acoustic cover of Jimmy Webb’s “Highwayman” that you can check out below. He also has a featured vocal on a 2021 folk single called “Amelia” by Tim Bruns.
