“Disturbingly great. Weird. Compelling. Great. That certain something.” Steve Beguhn would never define himself this way, but he doesn’t have to; Steven Tyler, Aerosmith’s legendary front man, used these very words to describe Steve’s performance in a 2011 Milwaukee taping of American Idol.
Producer Randy Jackson and singer/actress Jennifer Lopez both agreed, and this kid from small-town Wisconsin was off to Hollywood where he’d finish in the top 0.1% of contestants.
Following his highly-publicized run on American Idol, Steve has toured coast-to-coast as both a solo act and front man of the band that bears his name. Steve’s unique style and sound is the fusion of many influences: his humble rural childhood, three years in musical theatre, three years with the world-renowned University of Wisconsin MadHatters a cappella group, and his subsequent foray into pop music and songwriting. To hold all Steve’s talent, there is no box big enough—he’s also 6’5”, which makes that a logistical challenge! Steve is truly “Disturbingly great. Weird. Compelling. Great” and definitely has “That certain something.”
