Biography

Steve Millard grew up in Arlington, Virginia in a house filled with the music of Beethoven, Brubeck, Getz, Dylan, Chopin, and church hymns.  In elementary school he played piano and drums, then switched to alto sax and flute in junior and senior high.  At Pomona College, Steve played in the jazz band under the direction of Bobby Bradford.

After college Steve put music on hold, moved to Seattle, and got a Ph.D. in Biostatistics from the University of Washington.  Later he picked up the sax again, studying with Johnny Jessen and Don Lanphere, and playing in some local big bands.  In the Fall of 2000, a piano in need of a babysitter rolled into Steve’s life and he began lessons.  Since then he has written jazz, country, and pop songs.  He has released two CDs: Wrapped Up in Your Kiss, a collection of original jazz standards, and Steve Millard x 2, which includes a moving country ballad of family and a powerful teen ballad of love.

Steve currently lives in Seattle with his wife and son.
