Steven studied classical piano with several teachers in Montreal from the age of 4 to 12 before he turned to the dark side, and started playing rock. He played in bar, club and private function bands over the next six years in Canada in a variety of genres, including pop, rock, funk, blues and country. He spent a year and a half in England and Europe playing with various British rock groups, including Sam Apple Pie (formerly Atomic Rooster). On his return to Canada he played electric piano, organ, synthesizer and clavinet in stadiums, large concert halls and clubs with touring and recording Quebec groups and artists including Boule Noire, Geraldine Hunt, Martin Stevens, Alma Faye Brooks, Johnny Farago, Jim Zeller and Shirley Harmer. He has appeared on stage with Gloria Gaynor, and backed the Platters for a week, and has done studio work with Canadian and U.S. artists, including a punk album in the late '70s with Stanley Frank (there are no plans for a re-issue of the album - sorry). Since his mid teens Steven has been studying and playing jazz. His teachers have included Art Roberts, Charles Ellison and Frank Falco. He has worked in jazz clubs with artists in Canada, the United States and England. In his spare time, Steven is the National Chair of the Insolvency and Restructuring Group at Osler Hoskin & Harcourt LLP in Toronto.
