Little Talks, Rather Be

Steve joined The Uptones in August of 2014 after singing in the shower and the car didn’t quite pan out to the pop music career he had hoped for. Regardless, Steve still “brings it” in performance with his deep bass vibes and silky smooth tones. Hailing from Roselle, IL, Steve spent some of his high school years singing in quartets and choirs, and despite his abhorrent acting, his vocal chords landed him with roles in musicals like Frank Loesser’s “The Most Happy Fella” and Rodgers and Hammerstein’s classic, “Oklahoma”

At Indiana University, Steve played sousaphone (marching tuba) in the Marching Hundred and sang in a few chamber choirs until his musical journey took a dark detour into creating playlists for late night soirees and pair parties. But all of this would soon change.

After graduating and living abroad for a short time in Prague teaching English as a second language, Steve moved back to Chicago and found out about The Uptones through a friend and former member. It was a perfect match. “I’ve loved a cappella groups for years, but this is the only time anyone’s ever let me sing in one”, he thought to himself while writing this bio.
