In 1990 after the members of Spandau Ballet went their separate ways, Steve moved to Ibiza and discovered his love for club & dance music. During his 13 years on the island he worked with numerous musicians, producers and DJ’s and he was involved in various projects & compilations.
In 2009 Spandau Ballet reunited and undertook the world wide ‘Reformation Tour’ including 3 sold out shows at the O2 Arena London. In October that year they released their new album ‘Once More’ with the title track co-written by Steve.
A 65 date world tour with Spandau Ballet followed in 2015 with the final show in Hong Kong.

In addition to his ongoing dance projects, Steve played saxophone, guitar, percussion, and sang for and with Iggy Pop, Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel, Glen Gregory (Heaven 17), Marc Almond, Glen Matlock, Clem Burke, Kim & Marty Wilde, Belinda Carlisle, Nick Heyward, Marc JB (Bimbo Jones), Jeremy Healey and many more.
His love and passion for David Bowie's music got him involved in a band project called Holy Holy featuring “Spiders from Mars” Woody Woodmansey and Tony Visconti alongside members of Mick Ronson’s family. Steve also played and toured with further Bowie musicians such as Earl Slick, Sterling Campbell, Gail Ann Dorsey and Mike Garson.

In summer 2017 Steve got personally invited by Iggy Pop to play saxophone on his smash hit "Real Wild Child" at one of Iggy's shows in France.
