Steven Williams (Tempest):
Born on Dec. 15th 1986 in the Antelope Valley, a future Musician was brought into the world. For as long as i can remember music has always been a huge part of my life starting with classic rock, blues and jazz which was influenced by my mother and father and later introduced to metal, grunge and punk by my older sister. I soon noticed my stand point and love for music went deeper then expected and from there started learning the inside by learning how player guitar, drums, bass and vocals while also dabbling in piano/synth. My rebirth came when i was 15 when i was introduced into the world of EDM. House, trance, Dnb, The beats, the leads the vocals, everything about it intrigued me and opened a new door of musical experience for me. Every party i attended a found myself watching the DJ's more then anything, listening to how they put their songs together and the formula they used to bring an entire crowd to their feet, Simply put, it amazed me. Ive stood in front of thousands and thrown down some of the hardest metal known to man but never got a crowd reaction like these DJs Ive come to know and love have. It was then i decided maybe, just maybe behind the DJ booth was where i belonged. The thoughts, ideas and musical knowledge surged through my mind from that day on but it took serious inspiration from friends and family who also consist of fellow DJ's, to step behind the decks and go forward with my dream. From there i asked the right questions to the right people and took the knowledge and instruction and applied it, i fell in love. Behind the decks is where i belong, and i will continue to step forward every day in my exploration of this new found goal, learning, pushing and taking every step possible to better myself in the DJ world in hopes to one day be in the position that i once admired from the crowd, and nothing will ever stop or tear me away from that. My determination will never subside.
"Its not just love for music, its my passion. It goes beyond liking, and beyond a hobby, its about a way of living. Music is essential to my life"
