Behind the Music of Steve O'Connor
Steve O'Connor was born and raised in Liverpool, England, a cultural, charismatic city with a rich and famed musical heritage.
Steve has travelled extensively in his life, which has helped him to learn to understand and appreciate the diverse cultures and traditions of the world.
It wasn't until he moved to the highlands of Scotland, however, that his natural gift for song-writing began to manifest itself. It was there that he found the inspiration, both visual and spiritual, to teach himself to play guitar and subsequently write his own music and lyrics.
After several fruitful and memorable years in Scotland, he returned to Liverpool where he continued to nurture his talent for song writing. His words and melodies captivate and enchant, while his warm and genial manner coupled with his native Liverpool wit engage his audiences in performance.
He has learned his craft well, and though Steve takes his musical influences from far and wide, he remains as a singer-songwriter contemporary in his own style.
