Sometimes dreams do come true. Steven C will return to The Commodore, a landmark of elegance and jazz-age glamour, on Cathedral Hill for Encore! A best of concert featuring Steven C’s most popular titles, plus new originals, and accompaniment from an A-list of musicians and vocalists. A well-established pianist, composer, and recording artist, Steven C last performed at The Commodore in October when he released his newest CD, Retrospect: The Art of Solo Piano, recorded on his nine-foot Grand Bösendorfer. Will the Bösendorfer return for an encore as well? Will there be a prize for the fan who can name all “On The Hill” concert titles? A sing-along? For those answers, select a night and join us.

Steven C black and white bio


Pianist and composer Steven C has produced collections of music in listeners’ sonic memory from the Woodstock years to the present. He has a keen sense of capturing a wide range of musician styles, including cornerstone melodies and hooks from classic pop and rock radio songs to traditional church hymns, stripped down to two-hand piano or with a supporting ensemble. His compositions and arrangements are inventive, soothing, and performed with an exquisite touch.

As an established recording artist with more than 1,600 titles, Steven C has an impressive fan base of millions of listeners worldwide across major streaming platforms. Listeners now can easily enjoy his multiple new offerings or rediscover his catalogue of 1990s-era CD productions with artists and ensembles including the London Symphony Strings recorded at the famed Abbey Road studios in London. His music also has been featured on a range of television, radio, and multimedia outlets.

Among his most popular singles are “Signature,” “Deep Within,” “’Til Death Do Us Part,” and “Daybreak,” which has been streamed more than 20 million times. His 2016 video for “Daybreak,” filmed on the steps of the Saint Paul Cathedral (St. Paul, Minnesota), has millions of views.

Instrumental musicians have deep relationships with the instruments they play to make their art, a kind of mechanical love — and it’s true for Steven. With a masterful touch, he pulls sound from his beloved 9-foot Bösendorfer piano, now in their 27th year together. “Bosy” is present at many of his live performances and is captured in high definition on all his digital releases. It’s a signature. 



Steven C brings new life to 100 beautifully reimagined classic rock songs, all featuring his 9-foot Bosendorfer piano. The collaboration process among all the artists involved is evident throughout, as treatments include solo piano along with supporting rhythm instruments in the mix. His solo piano take of “Smoke On The Water”, with that classic guitar riff in Perfect 4th’s ringing out, will take everyone back to their first hearing in 1972.

“I never thought I would re-experience that mesmerizing era through my piano playing!” shares Steven C.
