Asked for her thoughts on working with Barney, Lennox said…
“Steve is my kind of drummer. The drummer is like the foundation of a house. Everything else comes from that core place of stability. When I’m performing I don’t want to be distracted by fluctuations in the ground that’s supporting tempo, the groove or me. That’s my boy Steve. He’s right there in the pocket, always. Economy, consistency and power. He’s the man for the job!”
With 'guitar god' Jeff Beck, Steve contributed to the Grammy award winning track "Plan B" & 2003 Sony album entitled, "Jeff" ... while in support of her last 3 studio albums, Barney has been mainstay touring drummer for US powerhouse, Anastacia - visiting Europe, Australia & Russia & most recently contributed to her highly successful “Ultimate Collection Tour” 2016.
In the pop arena, he's toured/performed with The Wanted, Sugababes, Kelis, Gary Barlow, Ronan Keating, Atomic Kitten, Gareth Gates, Children In Need Rocks (2009)... while his studio highlights include Will Young 's "Leave Right Now" (UK number 1) + tracks with Eagle Eye Cherry, Hotei, Sizer Barker, Ian McNabb & Dave McCabe & the Ramifications.
"I’m honoured be a part of the Natal family" says Steve “With so many drummers i admire already playing their kits, it was very natural for me to follow this gut feeling... the drums sound & look amazing! “
