Steve Christofferson

Steve Christofferson started out as a garage-band guitarist but he picked up the keyboard after hearing the “White Album”. Steve has played the piano in nightclubs and jazz festivals around the world with Nancy King, toured Europe with the Alan Jones Sextet, and performed in China with Mia Nicholson. He's worked with Jim Pepper, Kurt Elling, Karrin Allyson and many others. Steve is heard on recordings with Nancy King, The Metropole Orchestra and Skol Brothers, the electric quintet that features his compositions.

He's been described as “one of the Northwest's most inventive pianists,” (Willamette Week) with “a deft, lyrical touch and fevered imagination.” (Victoria Times-Colonist) His trio is “focused, a very cohesive group capable of exploring standards and lesser-known jazz pieces with a soul and drive that hearkens all the way back to Monk, Garner and Bud Powell.” (Cadence Magazine) His originals are “among the best compositions you'll hear on the local scene,” (Dan DePrez) and David Frishberg says “Steve gets a great sound and plays with real authority and impeccable taste; he's one of my favorite piano players.”
