Steve’s passion for music and sound began as a boy of 4 when he would listen to his Hawaiian grandpa play slack-key guitar. At age 10, Steve began to play guitar, and discovered that people were moved deeply by music. Finding Jesus at age 12 amplified his music, as he began performing publicly and seeing lives changed. Even in those early years, people reported profound transformations while listening to Steve’s spontaneous instrumental compositions. Steve is an accomplished songwriter, author, pastor, and proud grandfather. When physical and emotional healings began to occur during worship services or concerts, this led Steve to begin investigating further the wonderful healing effects of music. A lifetime of collecting a variety of international instruments finally led Steve to begin incorporating Crystal Singing Bowls into his sound healing practice. Steve is a certified Vibrational Sound Therapist (VST), and loves seeing the effects of the frequencies of singing bowls impact his clients, bringing them joy, healing, freedom, strength, and wholeness. He firmly demonstrates that you can Relax Into Wellness!
