Steve Parton is a professional musician, composer and music producer based out of Dundas, Ontario, Canada. He began playing guitar at age 10, having already had a successful career as a filmmaker (that explains the kid in the Superman outfit brandishing an 8mm movie camera, filming at the base of the Hamilton, Ontario high-rises back in 1981). 

Steve's films have been a mainstay at film festivals for the past few years. He has worked on set with Steve Martin, Eugene Levy and Hillary Duff.

He is the author of three feature screenplays, several books, and contributes regularly to Canadian Musician and Professional Sound magazines. He composed music for the animated cartoon series based on Lynn Johnston’s comic strip, For Better Or For Worse.
