Steve Sinatra '03, a professional music alumnus, moved to Nashville in 2006 to pursue a full-time career as a studio and touring drummer. Since then he's shared the stage with many nationally recognized artists such as Pat Green, Richard Marx, Fisher Stevenson, Billy Gilman, and currently Little Big Town. 

He will be joined by songwriting alumna Megan James as well as two members of the band King Billy: film scoring and performance alumnus Matt Utterback on bass and John Osborne on guitar. Together they will discuss studio work, the Nashville number system, gear, chops, and life after Berklee.

Sinatra grew up in Boca Raton, Florida where his family introduced him to music at the early age of five. As he worked his way through school, drums went from being a passion to being an obsession. He began playing in the local music scene at the age of 15, working for many talented musicians in the South Florida area. After high school, he attended Berklee for three years. When Sinatra is off the road, he divides his time between Nashville and Los Angeles recording demos and records for songwriters and artists such as Nashville Star runner-up Casey Rivers and George Ducas.
