He has been called the Vagabond Philosopher. All his life Steve has been haunted by the idea of a Little Nostalgia for Freedom – sure that life needs to be drunk to the full. As an adventurer he has travelled: from the top of the Atlas Mountains to the desert; dragged a toboggan over the frozen snows of Ontario, hiked through the steamy forests and mountains of Tennessee, Georgia and North Carolina, circumnavigated New Mexico. It is mostly from these he brings back the stories that makes up his song writing and books. And funnily enough his approach to understanding people.
Steve has been regularly writing songs, releasing albums and performing for many years. He has played hundreds of gigs and festivals all over the world. His songs have made it to several different charts.
With his band The Long Road he has recently released the American Wilderness Odyssey a 15 song cycle exploring ‘moonshine, myth and madness of the southern USA and produced. The band have written a ‘Companion’ guide to accompany this and will be on tour from Autumn 2021 onwards.
