Steve Mramor was born into a family blessed with musical talent and was raised in a home where singing and playing seemed as natural and necessary as breathing.
His father played in a well-loved local band; his mother and her sisters sang a cappella harmony; and both of his parents were members of a group that
perpetuated and celebrated their Slovene heritage and culture, including its music. Steve and his two sisters were all given music lessons, and though
Steve’s lessons were not on an instrument of his choice, the experience provided a foundation for what was to come. He quit the lessons, became a
self-taught guitarist, and began performing in a high school band in his hometown of Euclid, Ohio.
