Steve's music reflects the depth and diversity of his Louisiana roots. Part funky bluesman, part soulful popster, he draws on his love of Southern literature to craft tunes that infuse intriguing stories and characters with a depth of melody and musicianship that makes clear why Conn is in such demand."

His first national release was the critically acclaimed River of Madness, a unique hybrid of Louisiana-influenced, pop-inspired deep grooves and high ideals. He released Steve Conn in 2003, featuring the classic Ive Got Your Dog and the heartbreaking Beautiful, later recorded by soul icon Bonnie Bramlett.
In 2011 he came out with Beautiful Dream, 12 exquisitely crafted songs full of questions and observations about loss and innocence, hope and regret, cynicism and optimism.
He continues weaving those lyrical threads on the recently-released Flesh and Bone, which is resplendent with rootsy grooves, incisive lyrics, imaginative production and unforgettable songs.
