Born in the Orwellian year of 1984, STEVE started drumming at the age of 9, mostly playing along with Genesis, Aerosmith and Queen tracks. When he was 12, he joined his first band and was introduced to bands such as Nirvana, Metallica and finally, Dream Theater.

Never having taken any drum lessons, Steve’s a 100% self-learner and depends entirely on his ears.

Throughout the years he’s been a part of dozens of bands, be it fulltime member or merely filling in, including 10 ROGUE, CORPUS, HERFST, the Queen tribute band MAGNIFICO, SAILLE, THE NIGHTSTALKER and he has his own Prog Noir solo project called SHRINE OF AUGUST. Apart from playing all around Belgium, touring with these bands has brought Steve to the Netherlands, Slovenia, UK, Germany, Czech Republic, France and Luxemburg.

In 2016 he became the first-ever Belgian Table Drumming Champion earning him his 15 minutes of fame on Belgian TV and radio.
