He started taking banjo lessons at age eight, began performing frequently on stage by age 10, and quickly found an interest in competing in banjo contests. In 2008, at the age of 17, Steven won 1st place in the USA's National Bluegrass Banjo Championship in Winfield, KS. Steven repeated this feat by winning the title again in 2015.
