Steve Singh

Steve Singh is a Singer/songwriter from Toronto, Canada. Singh has toured extensively in the States and the UK and played with the likes of Ron Sexsmith, Bert Jansch (Jimmy Page's favorite acoustic guitar player), Kiki Dee (!), Jesse Malin, members of the New York Dolls, members of REM, John Wesley Harding, and tons of other people.

Steve grew up in the 80's in the heyday of Metal. " I saw everybody. You name it. Iron Maiden, Scorpions, Slayer. Everbody. My first concert was Black Sabbath for the Born Again tour with Ian Gillan tour. Then came punk and hardcore. Dead Kennedy's rocked my world. Jello showed be that you could have intelligent lyrics."

It was a natural progression toward the real songsmiths: Elvis Costello, Stranglers, Billy Bragg, Squeeze. "I loved how all these musicians could be heavy without loud guitars. It was implied, not obvious"

The obsession with the song took hold and there was no turning back for Singh.

The latest offering from Steve Singh is 'The Past Tense/England" e.p. available for high quality digital download at
