Steven Bates is a musician who grew up in Mendocino County on the beautiful north coast of California. He started playing music and school dances by the age of thirteen. After graduating, he set off to southern California. There, he has played all over the area with different bands and individuals. Knowing that the song is the currency, he has written numerous songs always with an eye on getting people out there to dance. With a revolving lineup that includes players with Van Morrison, Sons of Champlin, the Byrds and others he dishes out original guitar-driven music.
