Steve Blevins - Guitarist, Singer/Songwriter was born in the Motor City Detroit, MI May 10 1965. Steve's family is based out of Stoney Creek and Jonesborough TN. Growing up in a family of musicians, Steve would be the only one out of many generations to play guitar "on the other side of the road" as they said in the movie crossroads. For many generations his family were bluegrass pickers. Steve went south madly about the Blues and Rock Music, pretty much all of the 60's- 70s and 80's bands like Jimi Hendrix, he became a major SRV fan in 1983.


"I'm very much influenced by old Blues artist like Muddy Waters ,Freddie King ,Buddy Guy and what ever you hear on the satellite blues stations ..that's me! I love it and it is my passion. Then Blues had a baby and called it Rock and Roll that is my current state of mind and lifestyle"

1987: Steve left the mountains and joined his first road band ((The Stangers)) with Terry Baker 'Former Passenger Member' Penn Edwards ,Vic Danger Simon " of Harry Belafonte and "Tyron Smith Revue Super T" working for East Coast Entertainment , Atlanta Talent and SRO Productions. This started another style of music to enter his life that was called TOP-40 and eventually gave him the writing tools that can be heard on his current CD S.A.B | In November 1989 to 1994, Steve toured the United States and Canada, playing in all the club chain circuits like the famous chit-lin circuit of the south and east coast beach circuit. The Band's during this time were The Strangers, JJ-Star, Mega Stars, Lover, Lightnin Charlie, Robin Banks and The Vision Band. 1994 Steve left the circuit and landed a house gig Hurricanes Surf Side Myrtle Beach playing originals in a Jimi Hendrix Tribute called The Blue Flames.
