Janson Michael Steffan is a native of the Fargo-Moorhead area. Amidst classical piano training, brass instruction, and percussion lessons, he somehow found time to take up guitar. Janson spent 10 years in the Twin Cities, receiving private instruction from Slim Dunlap (The Replacements), Jim Johnson (Gypsy), Randy Anderson (Badfinger), Bruce Allen (The Suburbs), and other Minneapolis musicians. His diverse career in music has included pit orchestras, jazz ensembles, rock bands, acoustic duos, brass quintets, marching bands, piano accompanist, vocal choirs, songwriting & arranging, studio sessions, live audio engineering & lighting, recording production, and music ministry. After touring the Midwest for 9 years with local band 'Kid Hollywood', playing music for The Gathering faith community, and doing lead guitar and vocals for 'the Gina Powers Band' (www.theginapowersband.com), Janson finds himself at one of life's crossroads; he's finally ready to step out on his own.
