Steve Hacker - Bio

Some of the 20,000+ people who see Steve Hacker perform each year may assume that his first love musically is the music indigenous to the south: jazz, blues and spiritual, given that he was raised in the heated shadows of Spanish Moss dangling from the trees. After all, Steve Hacker is the man responsible for all the music in "Swamp Gravy" - the state of Georgia's "Official Folk-Life Play", as designated by the Georgia General Assembley in 1996, which, in addition to dozens of performances in Georgia every year, gets performed by Mr. Hacker all over the world including The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. and the Olympics. But those audience members with an alert ear may detect in Steve Hacker's compositions, the influences of artists in the vein of George Winston and Michael Jones. Interesting to note however is that Steve discovered these artists because a fan suggested that his sound was similar. "I went looking for some recordings and said, wow, that guy sounds like me!". That Steve loves New Age composers might come as a surprise to members of the various "hair bands" that Steve played guitar, keys, and sang with in the 80s and 90s. Most of Steve Hacker's fans, regardless of the venue in which they've seen him perform, would be surprised by the scope of his musical experiences and expertise. In fact, "surprising" is a good word to describe this phenomenal musician and composer.
