Steve is a practicing well travelled Nashville musician. He's been working, living and playing as The Altered Statesmen here in Music City for a solid minute now. His type is gentle but strongly delivered alt country- and jazz-inflected soul of an experimental and somewhat avant garde ilk. If that sounds like a nearly preposterous description, that's probably because the Statesman's material doesn't really sound like much else. The Altered Statesman has released a number of albums over the last several years. In an earlier life he tied in with Paul And The Weathermen, travelling throughout the country and Europe. Steve also produces and engineers recordings for others. There’s not much time for hobbies, though he enjoys others’ music, appreciates art, and is a great chef.
