Steve Wood is a founding member of the legendary Southern California band Honk, famous for the music in the cult classic film “Five Summer Stories”. He went on to become Kenny Loggins’ musical director for 10 years where he co-wrote several songs with Kenny and helped arrange and record “Footloose”. His multifaceted career went on to include a Clio award winning stint with Stevie Wonder. He also produced and composed for the Sony Classical label, which included his production of a PBS special filmed at the Colosseum in Rome and another PBS special with the Boston Pops.
He is probably best known for his work for Greg MacGillivray in the IMAX documentary field where he scored 30 films and received 7 best soundtrack awards, the most by any composer. That work allowed him to work with George Harrison, Sting, Brian May of Queen, Dave Matthews Band, Paul McCartney and a host of other international musical luminaries. It also took him to unusual remote locations like Raja Ampat in Papua, New Guinea and the Yasawa Islands of Fiji.
Steve’s love of music as an expression of something shared by all people of the world and his ability to recognize gifted musicians, regardless of style or technical prowess continues to lead him into exciting new and uncharted musical territories.
