Steve grew up in the small town of Tooele Utah. As a child he enjoyed playing basketball, football and golf.
For Steve, life really started at the age of 23 when he decided to go work at Signal Mt. Lodge in Grand Teton National Park. The year was 1994. There he met some of the most incredible people on the planet and enjoyed experiences that would shape him as a human being. During the two years he worked at Signal he developed a deep love and respect for nature and music.
The most important things in his life are his wife and kids. "Family is priceless.
I cherish the close friends and family that I have. "

Risa was born and raised on the island of Oahu and had a love for music from the very beginning.
She spent her teens surrounded by musicians and song writers, and went to every concert she could.
At 17 she left the islands to pursue her dream of being self sufficient. She moved to the country where she homeschooled two children, remodeled 100+ year old houses, raised crops and livestock, all while singing along to the rock and roll that was blaring in the background.
As her kids got older she decided to move back to the city to give herself and kids more opportunities.
She now lives with her husband on a little urban homestead in northern Utah where they enjoy farming and making music together.
My musical taste really varies based on my mood.
I can enjoy anything from Metallica to Nora Jones.
Some of my favorites are.... Evanescence, Jack Johnson, No doubt, Rod Stewart, Heart and Three days grace. My earliest influences included pearl jam, black crows and extreme.
-But my one all time favorite artist whos music has gotten me through tough times, inspired me, and helped me appreciate the simple things in life is Tom Keifer. First as the lead singer/ songwriter of Cinderella and now in the Tom Keifer band.
