Steve was a developing performer in Melbourne’s burgeoning theatre restaurant scene in the 70’s and 80’s.

In 1982, he and his partners achieved national television success with the ABC’s “Australia You’re Standing In It”. The characters “Tim and Debbie” and “The Dodgy Brothers” became instant hits, well known and loved across the country.

In 1989 he was a founding writer and team member of Channel Seven’s Fast Forward and Full Frontal, and also went on to became the in-house composer and musical director for a plethora of comedy series over the next ten years for that network.

His musical journey has also included, more recently, a ten-year stint as the pianist and recording producer for the celebrated Choir of Hard Knocks.


“The New Hip” is Steve’s latest original live solo show delivered from the piano. Drawing on a range of popular music styles, he has forged his own approach that is somehow both global and uniquely Australian, peppered with his trademark dry wit. He takes a satisfying swing at today’s politics, obsessions and some unpredictable themes that develop into a mini-musical that is farcical and yet fully believable, with Steve playing all the parts. The songs are catchy and memorable, ranging from outrageous and hilarious to ironic and wistful.
