Steve Hogarth was born in Kendal, Cumbria on 14 May 1959, at Helme Chase convent and maternity hospital - the son of a marine-engineer and a short-hand typist. While still very young his family moved to Doncaster, Yorkshire where he grew up. He never had formal music tuition but was fascinated by the songs on the radio. The Beatles, The Kinks and The Who lit a fire in him, like so many others.
He went on to college in Nottingham where he studied Electrical Engineering. After seeing Deep Purple at Sheffield City Hall, he decided engineering was not nearly enough fun and immediately began to teach himself the piano. Much later he played piano on The The's second album "Infected" after releasing 3 albums with 80's bands The Europeans and How We Live.
He has been the lead singer/lyricist with Marillion since 1989 and recorded and released 13 studio albums, along with an additional 2 or 3 solo and collaborative projects. It took him rather longer to become a rock n'roll star than he imagined, in fact he would argue it still hasn't happened. Thankfully.
