Steve has been singing barbershop since he graduated nursing school in 1990. His first exposure to barbershop was listening to his father sing in a quartet called the Woodwins. Steve has sung in previous successful quartets winning LOL District competitions PrimeTime (1994) and After Midnight (2005). Steve has had experience on the international stage with both groups and the Great Northern Union chorus. The emotional experience of sharing his music is what Steve enjoys best about singing barbershop harmony.
