Steve Young grew up on the Isle of Wight and after a few years of playing covers in local pubs he moved to London. Within a few months he signed a record deal with ZTT/Warners after auditioning for a rock band based in Brixton. Rubbing shoulders with bands like Oasis, Pulp, Echobelly, The Light House Family, Ash, Coldplay and stars like Kate Moss the band embarked on a journey that took them to Reading Festival, tours with Ian Astbury (The Cult) and recording an album with producer Adrian Bushby who later produced albums for Muse.

Within a few years Steve's career changed direction when he began work as a session guitarist scoring his first job with Lionel Richie. In a week that literally changed his life he played on the V Graham Norton Show, Good Morning and Parkinson backing Lionel on guitar with songs like Hello, Three Times A Lady and Dancing On The Ceiling. Shortly after this Steve joined forces with Peter Andre playing in his band for the re-release of Mysterious Girl that took Peter & the band to No1 on Top Of The Pops after a two week rollercoaster of promo shows.

In 2007 Steve was offered the chance to audition for ex Savage Garden frontman Darren Hayes. Hired on the spot he began a 5 year journey that included three world tours, two albums and a co-write on the opening track of Darren's 2012 Album 'Secret Codes & Battleships'. Concerts with Darren included full band gigs at The Royal Albert Hall, supporting Roxette at Wembley, countless large venues across the UK, USA & Australia and even the opening of Abramovich's new night club in Moscow. Steve also joined Darren on extensive acoustic 'duo' tours around the world playing in small theatres, book stores and on TV & Radio shows.

In 2011 Steve began working with West End superstar Ramin Karimloo who is best known for his role in Phantom Of The Opera and the lead role in 'Les Miserable'. As his band leader Steve managed & orchestrated musicians all over the world to perform Country Acoustic versions of Ramin's best known West End hits. Tours included South Korea, UK & USA.

Since 2014 Steve has been writing and releasing his own music and with three albums out plus fans all over the world his songs have touched the hearts of many. He is currently signed to publishing company Streets Music where his music has featured on adverts and used by Caffe Nero for their in store music.

As any sensible musician will know tours come and go and with this in mind Steve began working in the UK as a wedding singer and corporate entertainer (and also a music teacher) to support his career between tours. This has been his full time occupation to date and with the experience and musicianship that only years on the road can teach you his set is delivered with passion, emotion, technical ability and absolute professionalism. With a song list of nearly 400 tracks from old to new, the option to learn that special song just for you, you will have absolutely no doubts that you can book Steve with confidence to make your day perfect.

Steve was very responsive to emails. Once he arrived he was set up and ready to go in just a few minutes. He has an excellent voice and is an amazing talent with the guitar. Knowing exactly what to play and blended in our choice of songs from his extensive play list. Every one was up dancing and we had many compliments on how good he was. An excellent evening, will definitely be booking Steve at some point.
