About Steven Green…

Steven began singing as a kid growing up in Virginia when he would play his sisters’ 45 records and mimic artists like Elvis, Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison. He soon became interested in drums, playing on hat boxes and trash cans until he bought his first real drum set at age thirteen and formed his first band at fifteen for which he sang and played drums. Major life long music influences for this baby boomer include rockers like, The Beatles, The Zombies,  Roy Orbison, Neil Diamond and the Four Seasons as well as jazz, swing and blues artitsts especially Ray Charles, plus Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Tony Bennett, Bobby Darin, big band swing (Count Basie, Duke Ellington) Ella Fitzgerald and more recently Harry Connick Jr., Diana Krall and Michael Buble’.    

Steven has performed in numerous bands and places; his job with Miller Brewing relocated him during a 36 year career i.e.  (Richmond Va. {his hometown}, Eden, N.C. , Central New York and most recently Milwaukee- where he was in Green Solo, 3 WAY STREET, Smooth Edges, The Reflectors and Neon Moon. 
Having  played classic rock for many years, Steven realized he was ready for a change in the kind of music he wanted to perform and to focus on singing only. Still an avid lover of drums and using the latest Roland electronic technology merged with full size drum shells he plays at home but chooses to perform out only by singing and using vocal backing tracks. 

His preferred style of music for singing is a mix of Pop, Jazz and Swing music with a "virtual" band by using customized backing tracks for his instrumental accompnayment. The songs he chooses  are a mixture of big band accompanyment, small jazz group, rock and pop groups  ..but all with great melodies and feeling, the later two fulfilling Steven's goals.  There are a number custom backing tracks to which Steve has added his own backup vocals and/or drums.  

And all at a volume that doesn't make bar tenders deaf and allows social interaction by patrons in a casual atmosphere. Go to the demo section  to hear examples of his latest listing of 
great songs he is choosing and listen to selected Demos. 

*Steven is also an author, having written a novel called The Unlikely Promise which is available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble on line.
