World Class Guitar Player

Steve Lukather, word class guitar player, singer and songwriter. Born in 1957 in Los Angeles, Steve Lukather has been a force in the music industry for twenty-two years.

Luke, as his friends call him, began playing the six string at the young age of seven. Within two years, he was handling blues scales and Clapton and Hendrix solos well enough to play with others twice his age. By the age of eleven, Lukather was already earning money with his talent, performing on the party circuit around L.A. It was in the halls of Grant High School that Steve met the musicians that eventually led to the formation of Toto, which have sold an estimated 20 million copies worldwide.

Outside of Toto, Steve Lukather has added his trademark licks to countless recordings from a diverse musical spectrum.

“I have been very fortunate to work with just about all the heroes that I’ve ever had, in a live setting or in a recording studio. I’ve worked with Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Elton John, George Harrison, Paul McCartney, Don Henley etc..”
