Stingin' Steve

Session Singer, Music Producer

Stingin' Steve on SoundBetter

If you're looking for the perfect vocal clone of Sting, you're in the right place; need a more personal touch? I'll sound like myself, then!

I've been the singer in a Sting/Police tribute band for over 20 years and when I need to sound like Sting, I can imitate him to perfection (check this out: https://youtu.be/UMsGDKhTeGQ). However, I have also developed my own singing style over the years, especially since I started recording my own songs. In 2010 I published an album with a team of producers (Tuesday Project) that included top hit mixer-producer Stephen Power, who has worked with the likes of Robbie Williams and Kylie Minogue; this is the video of one of the songs I made with them, 'And The Radio Says': https://www.latest.facebook.com/tuesadyproject/videos/561779617334679/?v=561779617334679 .
In 2013 I recorded the vocals of all the tracks on Spanish producer Oscar Salguero's album, '11' (https://elevenofficial11.bandcamp.com/releases).
I have worked as a vocalist with world-famous deejay Gabry Ponte from Eiffel 65; you can hear and see me in the video of his 'The Point Of No Return': https://youtu.be/YGG0rsYAAQ0 .
I am currently recording my first solo album.
