Biography

Steve started his musical career at school, forming a band at the age of 14. After leaving school he got a job as an assistant sound engineer at CTS studios in London and worked on films such as: Let It Be, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, Lindsay Anderson’s If and Husbands with John Cassavetes.

In the mid-70s he played in various bands in Germany before moving to Sweden where he settled down and started a music production company. During the next 10 years Steve established himself as one of the top composers for advertising and TV production in Scandinavia. Amongst his credits are commercials for: H&M, Carlsberg, Ecco shoes, Coca Cola, SAAB, Volvo, Läkerol, Åhlens, Ikea, Cadburys and Pripps as well as TV drama and entertainment series for: SVT, TV3, TV4 & DR.

He was one of the founders of the MATCH PRODUCTION MUSIC label which as part of the UNIVERSAL GROUP is still one of the leading suppliers of music to television, video & radio producers all around the globe. Steve moved to London where he continued to compose/produce for Match Music and to work on special commissions like the 5.40 ITN News theme. In 2008, ‘London The Musical’ premiered in Stockholm featuring music by Steve.

These days Steve splits his time between Europe and his home in Antigua where he writes and produces for ADDICTIVE TRACKS, a new production music label created by Steve in 2014. Sensing the need for high quality, customisable music Addictive is one of very few labels worldwide to offer Stems for every single track allowing editors to customise the music to perfectly fit their pictures.
