Steve was born on January 9, 1967. As a child, he listened to Van Halen, Waterboys, and Elvis Presley, which became his influences in his musical career. His teachers also told him that they believed that someday, he would be a frontman performer. He stated that his most sentimental recollection was his grandmother playing the same three songs over and over on the piano; he said "You can hear her fingernails hit the keys before they actually make the note. And she whistles backwards – not out, but in.:
