Steve Erwin made his professional debut in 1974 at the Helm in Annapolis, and quickly began playing music for a living in Annapolis and D.C. Two years later he moved to Chicago to explore the growing singer-songwriter scene taking place there and played for a five year period before returning to the D.C. area. At that point he began his first band working with top jazz musicians such as John Previti, Harold Howland and the legendary Danny Gatton. He recorded the Was It Like This project with these gentlemen in December of 1988 and released it on CD in 1997 to critical acclaim. During this time he gave three notable concerts. The two Sychronicity concerts in D.C. and the Concert at the Hall of Mirrors at Glen Echo in Maryland. Also at this time he began hosting the open mike at Gallagher’s Pub in 1987 taking over the reins from the future recording star, Mary Chapin Carpenter. This was the most successful open mike in D.C. during the 5 years he ran it with both the Washington Post and Washington Times writing articles about it and his role as host. In May of 2000, he gave a concert at the ORF RadioCafé in Vienna, Austria. In 2001 he took time off from performing to pursue a career in buying and selling rare books but took up performing again with his move to Eastport, Maine in the summer of 2007 and continues playing music in Maine and Canada.
