Steve Watkins

At 16, Steve (aka “Lanny”) first performed in a Rock / R&B / Jazz / Pop / Country / Funk / Folk / Glam project aptly named “Directionless.” In parallel with his weekly therapy sessions, he went on to become a founding member of “Montego Shine” and subsequently joined “Details” in the 80’s. That band imploded on tour, leaving Steve to embark on a solo career in his living room and an ongoing unbalanced relationship with local R&B group “The Benders.” Steve joined JATW in 2011 when no one was paying attention.

Musically, Steve has been inspired by Roy Bittan, Greg Phillinganes, Bruce Hornsby and Paul Rodgers. He likes chocolate sauce on his ice cream.
