Cool Music

I call my music "Americana Funk", a retro salute to the early days when music was created here and not imported from Europe.

I draw on my experience as a drummer and bandleader (1958 - 1972), producer (1970 - 2000), and digital music composer and music arranger (2005 - present). I put everything I know and love into this music and sincerely hope you enjoy the groove. Poppa Steve
