I perform on a regular basis as a solo singer/songwriter and guitarist. My performances are mostly original songs and instrumentals. My latest CD, "Stages," was released in 2010 with extensive radio airplay and a very successful concert at Hugh's Room, Toronto.

Show Preview – Gary 17, Publisher, Toronto Moon Magazine, December 1, 2015

“A thoughtful songwriter of sometimes poignant and other times delightfully light-hearted songs, Steve Raiken is a highly gifted acoustic guitar player whose fingers, as I’ve previously mentioned, can weave a mesmerizing spell on audiences.”

Magazine Article – Deirdre Mallahe, Editor, Musically Yours Magazine, Winter 2014

"Steve is a very skilled acoustic guitarist. His slide version of 'Amazing Grace' brings the house down every time. The cinematic feel of the instrumental 'Muskoka Morning' highlights his strength as a guitarist."
