Originally from the Philadelphia area, Berklee College of Music grad Steve Hartmann
now resides in Jericho, VT. Having been described as the grey between Dave Matthews
and Damien Rice, Hartmann brings vocal power and musical grace like a seasoned pro.
Drawing from personal and second-hand stories, he touches upon love and loss, strength
and anguish in nostalgic ways that pull you to the edge of your seat and leave you wanting more and a smile on your face. With a vocal ability reflecting his Peter Gabriel and Sarah McLachlan roots, Hartmann fuses past influences to current experiences; creating a timeless mesh of music. He’s shared the stage with Chris Carrabba
(Dashboard Confessional/ Twin Forks), Dispatch, Joe Perry (Aerosmith), Train, Bryan Adams, Jeffrey Gaines and Livingston Taylor at places like The House of Blues (Boston), Charles Playhouse (Boston), Higher Ground (So. Burlington, VT), and Battery Park (Burlington, VT), has performed at The Lake Champlain Maritime festival since its inception, and won the Advance Music Competition 2003 and the 2015 Vermont’s Original Music Competition. www.stevehartmannmusic.com/
“His vocals are pristine. He’s fantastic!” Chris Carrabba (Dashboard Confessional, Twin Forks) “If ever you get a chance to see him live, take it. You won’t regret it.” Jeffrey Gaines
“I was blown away. Speechless...” Livingston Taylor
