You would be hard pushed to find a more in-form, in-demand, exceptionally talented artist than Steve Lawler, regarded as highly by his industry peers as he is by his huge global base of musically educated fans. Dynamic, driven and drastically obsessed with performing as well as he possibly can Steveʼs passion for House, Techno and Electronica is too strong for one simple generic association, and right now his message is louder than ever.
