Award winning classical-crossover guitarist with music to suit all occasions.. Hailed by Classical Guitar Magazine as "an accomplished young performer" whose "work is always of note" and by ThisIsClassicaGuitar as "a fearless and exciting young guitarist with daring virtuosity and an intimate touch on the instrument”, Liverpool born Joseph took up guitar at the early age of 5. In 2005 he was awarded a place at the world famous Chetham’s School of Music and 2007 saw him being offered a coveted entrance scholarship to study at the RNCM with Craig Ogden and Gordon Crosskey. In 2013 he graduated from London’s Royal College of Music with a Masters Degree in Performance with the help of generous scholarships from The Draper’s Company, John Lewis Fund and the Countess of Munster Trust. Steven has performed extensively throughout the UK as a soloist and chamber musician, giving recitals in prestigious venues including Bridgewater Hall, Capstone Theatre, V&A Museum and Bolivar Hall. He has also been the featured concerto artist with many orchestras and ensembles, giving his debut concerto performance (Vivaldi's Lute Concerto in D) in 2011 whilst at the RNCM and going on to give his first performance of Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez with Southampton Youth Orchestra in 2013, to critical acclaim. In the same year he performed the ‘Aranjuez’ again in the opening concert of the Heswall Arts Festival with L’Orchestra dell’Arte.
