Steven H. Bardo
Steven H. Bardo began his musical career in his hometown of Buffalo, New York, where he first earned his reputation as a rockin’ blues guitarist while playing the local club scene. Having quickly outgrown the Buffalo music scene, Steven, looking for new musical experiences and warmer weather (it’s awful cold in Buffalo) set sail for sunny Hollywood, California.
In addition to continuing his guitar playing in such notable LA club favorites as Ted Turner and the Blue Baron Band, Steven also started Painted Sound Studios where he met and jammed with the likes of Clem Burke from Blondie and Steppenwolf’s Michael Monarch. Specializing in capturing the essence of live performances, word quickly spread among the blues, rockabilly and punk communities that Painted Sound Studios was the place to record. Among his lengthy list of credits Steven has engineered and produced albums for Ray Campi, Sammy Masters, Dee Dee Ramone and child star Brandon Cruz (who played Eddie on hit television show The Courtship of Eddie’s Father).
Recently, Steven has revisited some of his roots in avant-garde music. Earlier, he co-produced legendary Todd Rundgren and worked with the infamous Dr. Timothy Leary. Most recently Steven has been playing, writing and recording with Jackson Del Rey from Savage Republic in the popular LA band Del Rey & The Sun Kings.
