Steve is a singer songwriter from the South of England and is busy for quite a while. He plays all sorts of musical styles folk (Bob Dylan came up in my mind), guitar based rock and progressive symfo, all well crafted music and a sometimes provoking.
News December 2011:
New album plan for 2012:
The album is called “Crimes And Reasons”. and will feature Tony Levin (bass), Nick D’Virgilio (drums), Martin Orford (flute)(!!!) and Gary Chandler (guitar) – Bob White (drums). I have played more instruments myself, than on the previous 3 albums, taking on all the keyboards on the record and, bass on several of the 10 tracks plus the usual acoustic and electric guitars/ solo’s etc. I’m very pleased to have Martin Orfords flute playing on 2 tracks and, bring him briefly out of retirement from music.
Emotional Creatures Live is his first ceedee, 7 tracks are recorded live ('00).
The other 3 tracks are recorded in a studio with help from his friends of
Jadis and Nick D'Vigilio
(ex-Genesis, Spock's Beard,
Tears for Fears)
has laid down the drums on three of the tracks!
Must admit that these three studio takes are my favorite.
The songs are catchy proggy singer songwriter stories, real fine lyrics.
For a first cd cd not bad at all, but the songs have more potention. Think this will be his "try out".
No he has finished working on Emotional Creatures Part One with, sit down and be amazed:
Geoff Downes - keyboard (Asia and and...)
Nick D'Vigilio - drums (Spocks Beard, Genesis, Tears for Fears, and ...)
Gary Chandler - guitar ( Jadis)
Steve Christey - drums ( Jadis)
Martin Orford - keyboards ( IQ & Jadis)
John Jowitt - bass ( IQ, Jadis, Arena)
Paul Cook - drums ( IQ)
