Who is Steven Reinhardt?
Steven is the descendant of legendary guitar performer Django Reinhardt’s cousin. He is a member of this broad family that carries around the world, generations after generations, a special way of playing music. Listening to Steven’s music is like hearing centuries of Manouche tradition: A way of life, a unique culture.
As he learned guitar with famous artists such as his grand-father Jim Ways or his Uncle Angelo Debarre, Steven grew as an artist with high standards!
In every day life Steven never stops playing! If we consider he really started his career when he was 18, we can quote live shows on stage with artists like Tchavolo Schmidt, Adrien Moignard, Angelo Debarre (of course!), Serge Krief or Samy Daussat…
He has always been considered as one of the young members of the extended family of musicians that nowadays carry the legacy of Django Reinhardt in France and all around the world. And he’s often invited on major events celebrating the memory of Django, such as the “Cent Ans de Django Reinhardt” in 2010 in Paris (France, La Cité de la Musique).
At 28, Steven is now a husband, a father and a fully accomplished artist with his own musical universe. The tracks of his second album Thaissy Bolero sound as a mix of retro and modern. It’s like having a walk in the streets of Paris: Fresh and celebrating life in an out-of-time background universe…
