Steevi has travelled extensively throughout the world wide industry as a busy session drummer and drum coach, with his own teaching studio, as well as school/college visits helping young artistes of tomorrow!

One of Steevi's most enjoyable musical opportunities was to record an album at the infamous 'Mountain Studios' in Montreux, Switzerland- where, such acts as Queen, David Bowie, Michael Jackson, Iggy Pop and Deep Purple
 have all recorded under the guidance of the late producer genius Dave Richards. Steevi worked personally with David for some time and had remained friends up to David's sad departure in 2013.

During The band's stay in Switzerland SB was asked to record a couple of tracks on spec for Brian May's new album -Another World.
