He has toured with the late Jimmy Rogers, among others, and has played with many of the great Chicago bluesmen and contemporary players, yet remains one of the best-kept secrets in blues. His playing, vocals, songwriting, and stage presence have earned him a place among the top blues performers on stage today. The late William Clarke called Steve “the best harp player I’ve ever seen.”
