Originally from Naples, Italy, Steven has always had a passion for music, art, and culture. Steven began singing at the age of 6 in a community choir as the featured treble soloist. After moving to the states with his family, he quickly became involved in Santa Monica High School's Choirs and Orchestras where he sang and played violin all four years. He went on to attend Pepperdine University where he received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Vocal Performance. Since graduating, Steven has kept busy singing in the Los Angeles area. He was a member of Santa Monica College's Jazz Vocal Ensemble under the direction of Cindy Bourquin for a number of years. This group recently recorded an album which won a Down Beat Award. Most recently, Steven was a Chanticleer finalist for 2013 and auditioned for the group in San Francisco earlier this year. Apart from singing, Steven also plays the bagpipes, brews his own beer, has a passion for wine, and enjoys cooking especially for his lovely wife Ashley.
