STEVE is the heart and soul of ARION, with a powerful passion and optimism for the music that is seldom seen. A self-taught bassist, Steve (and brother Larry) first gained the spark to form a group after attending a neighbor’s band rehearsals. Influenced heavily by the Beatles, Moody Blues and the classic rock bands of that era, Steve honed his playing skills through hours of practice, a discipline he still maintains to this day. Like any great bass player, Steve realizes the importance of working with a drummer with impeccable meter, and both sharing the responsibility of playing “in the pocket” and driving each song from start to finish. Steve continues to reside in the Chicago area.
