Steve Ball has been a musician since he picked up his first trombone at the age of thirteen. At sixteen, the music of Felix Cavaliere of The Young Rascals turned him on to the magic of playing organ in a rock band. As a DJ for ten years he followed the siren call of rock music. Today, Steve divides his time among his many talents and passions: fine woodworking, a hectic schedule of performance, travel and recording, and a solid commitment to spiritual life and practice. Formerly of liars, gods & beggars, with whom Steve played since 1988, he is currently the keyboard artist with SHRI, a blues band (see and The Denise Allen Band, both of which perform throughout the U.S. Southwest, and in Europe. Steve’s work is included on over twenty-five albums of original music.
