Stee has been involved in music from a young age playing bass, guitar and keys. After completing his studies in 2002, he left Dublin for the Netherlands where he was intent on pursuing his musical path.

London based outfit “Loose Ensemble” got their hands on one of his demo’s and asked him to feature on two tracks for their “Catalyst EP” which was released on Foundation records.
