Born in Brunswick, Maine, Steve’s family moved to Los Alamitos, California when he was two years old.
Growing up in Orange County Steve developed a life-long passion for music, learning piano and French Horn in elementary school at the encouragement of his music-loving parents.
He played in school bands and orchestras all the way through high school. He began learning guitar at 16, first taking folk lessons from his mom, then moving on to classical guitar, and then rock and roll.
Steve received his master of music in voice performance from California State University Sacramento in 1997, in addition to earning a master’s in history.
Steve has both studied and taught voice, piano, French Horn and guitar since the early 1980s, and has directed church and synagogue choirs, local operas and has sung and performed and as a soloist.
After focusing on opera and musical theater he returned to his first love, songwriting, and for the last 12 years has been performing and recording solo as well as part of Myler and Starr.
He and his friend, author Rob Woodard, formed a songwriting partnership in the early 1980s. Two of their collaborations are featured on “In the Dark of the City”, and an additional one on “Swoop to the Tonic”. Kent’s muse has been on overdrive of late and a CD of brand new songs is coming soon.
