About The Author

Steve Obrien - Email:

Hailing from the Niagara area, Steve has indulged in his passion for music from a very young age.

“Like so many others, the Beatles hit me like a freight train …and from that point on my immense love of music knew no bounds “

At the behest of his father, Steve took up the guitar at age eight, winning some local guitar competitions while performing in ensembles.

Spurred on by influences such as Jeff Beck, Al Dimeola and Ritchie Blackmore, he became fully entrenched in the local music scene and earned respect as an 'A' list player . This brought him to a love of the drums , which he pursued  with the same unshakeable vigor.

“ On both instruments, I was always trying to obtain that “next level”…not content to rest easy on past accomplishments…some were born with talent….me…I had to work at it!”.

While performing in and out of the area he enjoyed success with various bands such as Rust Never Sleeps, James Doolin and the Mob, The Parkside Jazz Band, and the multi award winning “Oracle”.

As his passions diversified, he became more and more involved in the local music community…teaching, hosting musical events, and organizing multiple attendee trips to various shows throughout the greater Toronto area .

“I have an intense love of sharing my passion with others….and my contributions to Joes Place online gives me the opportunity to spread the word in regards to quality music that may have otherwise not come to the average listeners attention”
