Using carefully crafted songs with vivid imagery and subtle wit, Steven uses his music to tell stories, and
create a shared experience with the listener. Hailing from the west coast of Canada, Steven Marriott is a
singer/songwriter whose live performance never ceases to get people smiling and singing along. It’s hard to put a specific genre label on his music, but if the Barenaked Ladies invited Jason Mraz and the GooGoo Dolls over for a backyard weenie roast, they might bust out the guitars and cover Steven’s music
around the campfire.
Songwriting is an open and boundless art, and there’s no need to limit yourself to one style. Steven’s original music draws inspiration from everything from Celtic ballads to Argentinian tangos, but all the while retaining a folk-rock undertone. Having hundreds of shows at various festivals, breweries and restaurants
in Western Canada both as a solo act, and as the lead singer/guitarist of his former band, Emberfield, Steven shows no sign of slowing down.
Steven loves music and hopes to use it to change lives wherever he can. Be it through inspirational lyrics,
or through a fun and engaging performance that brings a smile to someone’s face. You may never know
when someone is going through a rough time and maybe all it takes is a silly stage joke, or a simple line in a song that can change their path. You’ll likely never know that it happened, but you have to stay
optimistic that by following your dream and trying to make a difference, that somewhere, somehow, it will.
