About the author

“Nobody wishes on their death bed they had spent more time at the office.” Or, in Steve Rapson's case, any time at the office. After life in corporate America he is now a recording artist, songwriter, and performing musician. Steve's debut CD, Christmas Guitar, is sold around the world. He has followed up with five more to date: Romantic Guitar, Half Irish Guitar, Patriotic Guitar, Original Guitar, My Favorite Guitar Solos. Among his guitar teachers (all briefly) were Mordy Ferber, Robert Sullivan (NE Conservatory), and Lenny Breau. As a producer and performance coach, Steve works with songwriters, performers and public speakers. His approach to stage work has helped further the careers of many song writers and singers including Kevin So, and Mary Gauthier. Steve performs around the United Sates—occasionally Europe—and is often found at fairs & festivals where he demonstrates the beauty of solo guitar and teaches beginners their first chord. He is the author of The Art of the Soloperformer: A Field Guide to Stage & Podium. Steve holds a Masters Degree in Communication Management from Simmons College. He lives in Boston with Rosemary, his wife of forty years. They married young, it was quite a scandal at the time.
