The mission started in Houston, Texas when Steve began playing baritone horn at age 14. His first idol was legendary J.J. Johnson. Throughout high school he performed with the award winning Forest Brook High School Stage Band, and then continued his training at the prestigious Howard University in Washington, D.C., where he majored in Jazz Studies from 1980-1983. While at Howard, Steve began to seriously study the Jazz masters, participating in events such as the Thelonious Monk Memorial Concert series featuring Grady Tate, Charlie Rouse, Wallace Roney; and workshops with musical greats like Lionel Hampton.

Performing demos and background vocals for artists such as Joe, Chico DeBarge, Coolio, Chante Moore, Korea-based Uptown, Coco Lee and Mica Paris has prepared her for her moment to shine as a solo artist. She also appears on James Tobin's sophomore release entitled " Late Nite" and co-wrote the title track. Upon the release of the independent film Fathers of the Sport, one of the songs she co-wrote can be heard as a backdrop to this powerful film. Although most of her influences are male singers like Stevie Wonder, Luther Vandross, Marvin Gaye, Prince, and Donny Hathaway, Tobin is reminiscent of the sultry sounds and richness of R&B or Jazz singers of yesterday. ===============================================================
