Minneapolis native Stevie Stewart began his musical career as a drummer, but ultimately gravitated towards keyboards when he fell in love with the Hammond B3 organ and set out to master it.
His charismatic stage presence soon caught the eye of Twin Cities-based blues-rock band Crow (best known for their top-twenty hit “Evil Woman (Don’t You Play Your Games With Me),” which was later covered by Black Sabbath).
In 1992, Stevie relocated to the Los Angeles area to be closer to the music scene. In just a few years, he was involved, as both a performer and a producer, in the creation of more than a dozen albums by various artists whose styles ranged from hard rock to country to blues.
Five years after his arrival in L.A., Stevie teamed up with longtime friend Nick St. Nicholas of Steppenwolf fame, who recruited him as keyboardist for the “World Classic Rockers,” a supergroup which also features former members of The Eagles, Santana, Toto, Boston, Wings, Vanilla Fudge, Journey, Foreigner, The Knack and The Spencer Davis Group.
Stevie Stewart now brings both his formidable keyboard skills and vocal stylings to the re-formed version of The Sweet, adding a rich dimension to the music that fans will have to hear to believe.
