Steven J. Morse (* 28. July 1954 in Hamilton/Ohio) is not only THE all-rounder, but for sure one of the world's best guitarist. Whether classical, jazz, Southern Rock, Bluegrass or Hard Rock - Steve plays them all! Steves career began in the end of the 70's with the establishment of the Dixie Dregs (band later was also known as The Dregs). Here Steve combined Rock and Bluegrass elements with jazz and classical music. Before Steve becomes a member of the progressive Rock Band Kansas in 1987, he published two solo albums under the name Steve Morse Band in 1984 ("The Introduction") and 1985 ("conditions UP") - as you know, there were more to come. On the search for a lead-guitarist Deep Purple asked Steve Morse in 1994. Owing to Steve's extraordinary guitar playing and song writing, Deep Purple released the album "Purpendicular" (1996) back to the top of Rockbusiness. In April of 2004 Steve Morse, Jon Lord of Uriah Heep, Jimmy Barnes from Cold Chisel and bass player Bob Daisley and drummer Lee Kerslake from Ozzy Ozbourne formed Living Loud and release the aclaimed album of the same name. In the last 30 years, Steve was elected for "Guitar Player of the year" 5 times in a row, received 6 Grammy Awards and has played on more than 80 Albums! Steve is a pioneer in the use of guitar to MIDI converter. He plays the Shadow SH-075 because none of the other units available today track better, respond faster or are more reliable.
