Steven Springer & Friends will be performing at The Corner Bar this Tuesday 30th June. Showtime 9PM. Part proceeds go to charity.

When Trinidad-born guitarist Steven Springer arrived in Port-of-Spain for his honeymoon October 2008 he felt it would be the last time he would see his homeland. He had been diagnosed with lung cancer, and had been battling it for 4 years, and was expecting to return to the United States after his visit to undergo radiation therapy.

After visiting with friends and family, and enjoying his honeymoon in Trinidad with his wife Denise, he returned back to his doctors in Michigan, and when they x-rayed his lungs they found that the cancer had disappeared. “The doctors were shocked and amazed to find that the cancer had disappeared, and I didn’t have to undergo any radiation treatments,” said Steven Springer in a recent interview. “They had no explanation for it, but I know in my heart that it was the island of Trinidad, along with the people, food and positive energies I experienced, that made my cancer disappear.”

Now cancer-free, Steven is planning on returning to Trinidad again in June to play several concerts. “I want to give back, through my music, to the people of Trinidad. If it wasn’t for Trinidad, I wouldn’t be able to continue to make music anymore, and I know deep in my heart that Trinidad cured my cancer” claims a smiling Steven Springer.

Steven Springer is an accomplished and soulful songwriter and innovative fingerstyle guitarist, with his roots firmly planted in reggae, soca and calypso. His unique musical style is a melting pot of jazz, reggae, Latin, blues, rock and R&B, which combine to form a very refreshing and exceptional sound that’s easy on the ears and cheers the heart.

Born in Trinidad, in the West Indies, Steven Springer was inspired by the melodic lilting sound of soca and calypso, and started playing guitar at a young age. Touring worldwide, Springer was a featured artist at the 1988 World’s Fair in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, performing with the Trinidad Calypso Band. Springer joined Hugh Borde’s world famous Trinidad Tripoli Steel Band, performing and recording with them for over ten years. Steven has recorded and produced over twenty-five albums/CD’s alongside many of Caribbean music’s most popular acts, as well as numerous jingles for radio and television.

Steven Springer’s newest CD is a tribute to the island of Trinidad. He recorded the CD with his longtime musical partner Brian Pinard, the nephew of the famous Trinidad actor and calypsonian Sir Lancelot. The CD titled “Tropicooljazz” features music inspired by Stevens love for the island of Trinidad, and is a modern mixture of Jazz and Caribbean music, and has collaborations with many famous musicians from all over the world. “I feel that this CD is my finest effort yet, and I can’t wait to perform for the people of Trinidad” Springer said with a proud accomplished smile.

    Glad to hear Steve will be ok, he’s still a thief and a liar. I doubt the validity of his latest “tale”. And his guitar work is mediocre at best.
