2020 has seen me compose original video game soundtracks for ‘SAI‘ by Studio Mutiny, and ‘Just Breathe’ by Engine House VFX Studio. As well as being commissioned to compose a highly emotional TV/ Promo album for London, Soho based Felt Music. ‘Reborn’ is also being used as the music soundtrack for the Emporio Armani Spring/ Summer 2020 Advertising Campaign, with an overall futuristic and cinematic take. I am currently writing an album of original music entitled ‘Lifeline’, which will be heard across TV/ Advertising from 2021.

"Thanks for your amazing contribution to the project, we could not have done it without you"
Martin Alltimes, Imaginati CEO - Planet of The Apes: Last Frontier
"Throughout the development Steven showed great sensitivity and appreciation for what we're making and we think the end result is fantastic. In all our presentations of the game so far, the first thing people say is how good the sound design and music is. When the next project lands we'll be calling Steven again.
Dan Mayers, Into Light
"We've worked with Steven on the films Downward and The Canister and there was no discussion when it came to our latest film: Ascendance. His music is powerful, beautiful and stirs emotions we often forget we have. Amazing!
Michael Ortiz, Ascendance
"Steven has recorded over 20 tracks for The Repopulation, and was flexible in providing alternate versions of tracks based on feedback. This has included a mixture of shorter looping combat tracks, and longer "theme" tracks. We look forward to continuing working with him in the future."
JC Smith, The Repopulation MMORPG
"I am left speechless, it was beautiful, it was just what I was looking for and the turnaround time was exceptionally fast"
