Steve’s love affair with music probably began more seriously
around the age of 10 with The Beatles. At that same time,
for Christmas, he received his very first guitar (actually a
plastic ‘Beatles’ guitar). A proper Spanish/Classical guitar
followed soon after and Steve has been playing guitar ever
since. Around age 15 Steve decided to give the bass guitar a
try, fell in love with it and it remains his primary instrument.
Steve has played in many bands over the years (both
original and covers) and in various genres including
Rock/Pop, Jazz, Blues, Soul/Funk and Country music though
is perhaps mostly known for his work with LANDMARQ, the
Progressive Rock band he helped form in 1990. Musical
influences are many and include Joni Mitchell, Rufus
Wainwright, Kate Bush, Little Feat, Pat Metheny, Weather

Entertaining Angels (2012)
Although Landmarq managed to release two live albums plus a live
DVD, recorded in Poland, “Entertaining Angels” was the band’s first
studio album in over 10 years. However, it was worth the wait and
received glowing reviews and was hailed as their best yet.

Invisible Din (2016)
Composer, producer, guitarist Tony Lowe’s ESP project has since
spawned three more albums with various line-ups. Invisible Din was

well known names from the world of Prog and Rock (see above).

apparent that we’re dealing with quality…Stylistically, this is solid

Original Syn 1965-2004 (2005)

producer/keys player Gerard Johnson and guitarist Paul Stacey and
recorded the above 2-CD album which also included a new re-working
