Steve Best   music


I began writing songs way back in the 70’s and after a long time rehearsing in the bedroom I started playing in a two piece acoustic unit in pubs and clubs.  By the late 70’s 'New Wave' had reached Australian shores and I found myself in a band ‘The Quitz’ playing the local pub scene in Hobart, which included the infamous Red Lion, The Globe Hotel and The Victoria Tavern. It was great period for live music and some great bands were playing at that time. We lasted a couple of years then broke up, due to 'creative differences'. So I joined another band ‘MT Buss’ and continued to write and record our own material.  Then I got the opportunity to go to AFTRS and learnt about audio engineering , film making and a lot more.  In the 90’s got my first DAW and have been composing and producing music in the digital space ever since.


Below are some of the tunes I have been working on. Most have been reworked and re-recorded many times. So there are numerous versions.  This a small sample and may well change from month to month as sounds are added or deleted.  Thanks for listening, please share.
