Steve DeStefano was born and raised in the Philadelphia area. A South Philly boy at heart, he has since migrated to the suburban life and loves to write and sing about it. Steve has been playing guitar since his early teens and has been writing songs just as long. Many of his songs from his first recording,"Rat Race" are from different periods during his long 30 plus year career in music, but it's hard to tell when. Sometimes autobiographical, sometimes just in fictitious character, Steve's songs are always melodic, catchy and just plain fun. As a teen, Steve played lead guitar in the top 40 and the rock bands that were popular during that time period. He did a brief (very brief) stint in the disco scene that was popularized by the Saturday Night Fever craze of the 70's. He has been also involved recently as a bassist in the christian rock scene and is known for his flamboyant, charismatic stage presence.
