Stevie “G” grew up in rural Marshall County IN during the 1960’s and 70’s. Outside of school, he spent his days working for local farmers and bagged groceries at the local market. At age 14 he purchased his first guitar and took lessons studying classical guitar for over 2 years. This experience laid the groundwork for understanding the instrument and the various ways to make her sing.
After graduation from High School, Steve made his journey out west. That old Nashville guitar went everywhere he did. While attending college in Iowa, he got together with some friends and formed his first band – NITE SHIFT – (all members worked 3rd shift) They only played a few local gigs but got together regularly to jam out for fun. After earning his bachelor’s degree, he was off to make money the way most did at that time – working for da man. That Nashville guitar still graced many campfires and backyard Bar-B-ques from Kansas to Wyoming, then Colorado back to Iowa.
In the late 1980’s, Steve moved his family back to Indiana where he met a man with a nice music studio. This set the stage to take his craft to the next level. Within one year, HIGH PRESSURE AIR was formed and played 8 shows during the summer of 1990. Next, KLEVER GRETEL began it’s tour-DE-force by playing the big stage at Blueberry Festival. After 4 years, some members had moved from the area, so, he formed TSUNAMI SALAMI’S. This rock cover band earned it’s graces playing regionally in bars and on city park festival stages. After disbanding that project, he spent some time with GROOVE CITY STATION before starting his solo project-LIVE W/STEVIE G. Finding a nice niche in the acoustic marketplace, he performed regularly in tiki bars, wineries and supper clubs. Often times, special guests would join him on vocals, percussion, saxophone, bass or guitar. During that time, LEATHER MOOSE, 3 piece, was created using the all-acoustic format and enjoyed a nice 2 year regional stint playing smaller venues and supper clubs.
Rehearsing regularly at his home base in Goshen, IN inside a well equipped Studio G, you’ll find that old Nashville alongside other guitars, notebooks filled with poetry, lyrics, chords and notation as he actively immerses his positive energetic being into realms of pure, soul crafted pleasure.
