Pianist, composer, and arranger Steven Feifke has quickly made a name for himself as one of the most in demand young artists of his generation. An avid composer and arranger, Feifke thrives on writing for his septet and big band. His unique compositional and harmonic voice is sought after, and when not writing for his own bands, Feifke can often be found working on a wide variety of commisions ranging from stage to screen. He brings this same fresh compositional energy into his playing and artfully weaves fleeting riffs, background figures, and twists into his own designs. As a pianist Feifke maintains an active performing schedule in and out of New York City and was a semifinalist in the 2011 Thelonious Monk Competition. Feifke's debut record "Peace In Time" features an exciting mix of original compositions and rearranged standards, and has received much critical acclaim since its release in January 2015. Feifke currently resides in New York city, and holds a bachelors degree in music and a minor in economics from New York University.
