Steven lives in Bristol where he is in constant demand as an accompanist to choirs, vocal soloists, and instrumentalists. He is currently the accompanist and assistant chorus master to the Bristol Choral Society and the BBC National Chorus of Wales. He is conductor of Thornbury Choral Society and also of his own recently-formed chamber choir, New Bristol Voices.
Steven is an active and successful composer. In 1985 he won the Young Composers’ Competition at the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival with Snapshots for flute, saxophone, ‘cello, bass and percussion. His red land spring was a prize winner in the Tong International Piano Duet Competition in 2002 and received performances in London and Tokyo. His haiku mass, for choir and brass, was nominated for a British Composer Award in 2003, and Songs of Mary and Simeon (a setting of the Canticles) was performed during the 2005 Three Choirs Festival in Worcester. In recent years he has fulfilled a number of other commissions for instrumental and choral works, and his music is regularly performed in Bristol and beyond.
