Steve was born in Melbourne, Australia and in 1981 he bought a one-way ticket to Ireland where he joined Stockton’s Wing as bassist.  Since then he has popped up all over the place, with a major contribution to Sharon Shannon’s first album, and performances and recordings with Dermot Byrne, Altan, Martin Hayes and others.
