Did You Know? Steven Santoro

Today we thought it would be fun to do a little "Did You Know?" game and give you some fun facts about our artist Steven Santoro!

Did you know that Steven Santoro won one 2009 Just Plain Folks Music Award and was nominated for another for two different songs on the Mesa/Bluemoon release "Whisper My Name"?

His song Baby I'm Sorry won second place in the Vocal Jazz Song Winners category and Waiting For Grace was nominated in the R&B Song Category!

Did you know his song Hail Columbia was featured on the album project "Song For America" which featured 50 tracks on 3-CDs and was accompanied by other great artists such as John Mellencamp, The Black Crowes, Martha Wainwright, Andrew Bird, The Wilders, and Take 6?

Did you know his real name is Steven Kowalczyk, and the last name Santoro comes from his grandfather Libertore Santoro, who was the saxophonist that inspired him to play the same instrument?
