teve Brown was born and raised in New Jersey destined to live a life submersed in music. The self-taught artist picked up his first guitar at 7-years-old and never looked back. Steve began his life-long love affair with live performing at the ripe old age of 12, when he became a regular on the voltaic NJ rock scene of the ‘80s. At 13-years-old, he began writing music, lyrics and founded his first band, TRIXTER. It wasn’t long before Steve led the mighty TRIXTER to massive arena shows, a record deal and transcontinental tours with the likes of KISS, SCORPIONS and POISON.
Today, the award-winning TRIXTER continues to rock stages worldwide, a true testament to Brown’s talent, loyalty and love for his craft. To date, the band has over a million records sold, THREE #1 MTV videos and THREE TOP 100 BILLBOARD SINGLES, all penned by Brown. As not only a skillful guitarist, but as an accomplished songwriter, singer, engineer, performer and producer, Steve has become one of the music industry’s most sought-after and entrusted talents. From personal endorsements by Eddie Van Halen to churning out original music for some of television’s most popular hits , to regularly hitting the stage with an ever-growing list of rock and roll greats, Steve Brown is in constant demand. Most recently, Steve has played with DENNIS DeYOUNG (formerly of STYX), JOE LYNN TURNER (formerly of RAINBOW, DEEP PURPLE, YNGWIE MALMSTEEM), on BROADWAY in the hit musical “ROCK OF AGES” and as the featured guitarist in the THE EIGHTIES STRIKE BACK SHOW with RUBIX KUBE. In 2012, Steve was invited to be the vicarial guitarist for the legendary DEF LEPPARD, which led to him joining the band at the historic Wembley Stadium for the live globally-televised pregame show for Super Bowl XLVIII. Four years running, Steve currently fulfills his role with Def Leppard, while continuing to cultivate his ever-expanding expertise, experience and true love for all that is music.
