Steve Siu is a diagnosed autistic musical savant who has never had formal piano lessons and does not read music as he is entirely self-taught and plays everything by ear from memory. He is fortunate to have made every single dollar he has ever made being a professional piano entertainer for over 25 years with over 9000 performances under his belt. He began his journey at 17 when he was the youngest pianist ever to perform at the Nordstrom stores. This first gig launched a triumphant career that eventually landed him as the resident pianist at the Montage Resort in Laguna Beach, California, where he performs daily since grand opening in 2003. Steve is renowned to have the extraordinary ability to honor 95% of the pop culture favorite requests from 99% of the general public with concert precision on demand as his memorized repertoire spans over thousands of songs.
Embracing the digital social media age with his entrepreneur spirit, Steve launched a self-titled digital brand “Steve Siu Piano” to distribute content on various platforms like performing live streams with audience requests on Facebook Live and Instagram stories, making digital tracks and albums downloads available on Bandcamp, as well as regular weekly video uploads of his latest masterpiece on YouTube under SteveSiuPiano. Steve also hosts a community of his most dedicated supporters on Patreon.
It is Steve’s mission to reimagine artistry, virtuosity, and expressivity in the genre of pop piano styling as it has never been done before as he embarks on his legacy.
