Bio

About Steve
Ten years ago, after two decades of musical darkness, Steve pulled his dust covered guitar out of the attic and began to write again. Steve’s early days were spent playing and singing in “Size Five”, a popular teenage rock and roll band. His new songs explore themes brought on by age and maturity - songs of family secrets, of long forgotten poets, of separateness, connection, of second chances, acceptance and forgiveness.

Some of the venues where Steve has performed include the following highlights:

Freight & Salvage, Berkeley, CA
Sisters Folk Festival, Sisters, OR
Songwriter Sanctum, Santa Monica, CA
Yoshi's, San Francisco, CA
Coffee Gallery, Altadena CA (opening act)
Artichoke Music, Portland, OR
Ruby Hill Winery, Livermore, CA
Tidewater Friends of Folk, Virginia Beach, VA

House Concerts include:

Reviews:

“Geeezzzzz Great Music Steve Meckfessel! Under Beautiful Skies" the new album from Steve Meckfessel is simply magnificent songwriting and moving vocal
performances all presented in a newfolkish roots format that now belongs to its founder Steve Meckfessel. These three words “a splendid listen" come to mind after hearing all the songs on this CD release. The folk world has just been handed some of the best music they will hear in 2009 and beyond.”
